Azzaro Couture Spring 2018

Maxime Simoëns presented his second collection for Azzaro, the legendary French fashion house in Paris during couture week. True to the brand’s celebrity following of the past (Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch and Marisa Berenson), his pieces were all about glamour. Think: high-shine metallic blazers for men, purple feather boa jackets, and sequined pants. Below, our show notes on the collection.

Memorable piece —

Look 11, a black transparent crystal encrusted kaftan that moved like water.

Remarkable fabric —

The bright purple jacket made completely of feathers—which made for the most incredible slow-mo instagram of the week.

Best accessory —

The skinny scarves worn by both men and women on the runway added an extra chic rocker aesthetic.

Collection inspiration —

This was the first time the designer showed both men and women’s clothing on the runway, and that played a major part of the inspiration. According to the brand’s statement, Simoëns proposed a collection that transcended genders. Here, women could wear the sequined pants seen on men and men could wear the glittering biker jackets and metallic blazers seen on women.

Potential trend —

Sequined pants in cool jewel toned colors and crystal studded everything. Plus, black and gold colorways.

Location —

The show took place inside the Musée de l'Homme (an anthropology museum) in Paris. Guests entered to an array of neon signs in different languages before walking up a set of stairs to take their seats inside the venue.
