The fashion month comes to a memorable end thanks to the talented designers that presented their most interesting creations at the Paris Fashion Week fall 2014 edition. Irrespective of seasonal fads, elegant pieces always have a special place in fashion and, it seems like the concept has a variety of creative interpretations for the fall/winter 2014-2015 season, from innocent and romantic to whimsical, dark and moody. Some of the most exquisite creations spotted at the Paris Fashion Week were part of these brands’ lines:
PFW Fall 2014: Valentino Fall 2014 RTW Collection
Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli looked no further than their hometown for inspiration for the Valentino fall 2014 collection.
If for the Valentino spring 2014 couture line, Italian Opera proved the right starting point, this time it was Italian pop art from the ’60 and ’70s that helped the creative duo come up with wonderful ethereal creations with an innocent vibe. The show started on a cheerful note with several looks featuring colorful dots in cool combinations of pink, red, black and white. As the show progressed, the label’s signature ethereal capes and floor-length gowns featuring lavish embroideries, romantic floral prints and chic butterfly motifs made their way down the catwalk.

PFW Fall 2014: Elie Saab Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Elie Saab fall 2014 collection was titled ‘Dark Opulence’ and was inspired by the work of American painter Mark Rothko. It seems like the designer decided to adopt a trendier approach this time even though his signature sultry sequined floor-sweeping dresses were also included. Novelty came in the form of inky dégradées, sophisticated fur pieces and more eveningwear alternatives with a masculine vibe and more sheer, daring evening gowns. The rich colors the designer chose for the new line definitely did justice to the theme of the new line. See more from the Elie Saab fall 2014 collection!
