The aesthetic codes of every modern brand imply immersion in a particular fashion era, social layer or even a separate universe. For example, Hedi Slimane has been betting on the rich 1970s for a couple of seasons (to be more precise, since 2019), Olivier Rousteing skillfully cuts jackets in the style of 1980s suits, and Julien Dossen in Paco Rabanne draws inspiration from the heritage of the fashion house , whose heyday came in the 1960s. And although it sometimes seems that the quirky dresses of the time, crafted from metal or adorned with flowers, have no place in the everyday wardrobe of a modern woman, guests of Fashion Week dissuade this.

No matter how popular colorful color schemes are, there is no point in denying that the most intense passion is most often achieved through a combination of black and white. We have already written that one of the important trends of spring 2020 will be black and white geometric prints, referring to the optical art of the last century. But Chloe Harush at Paris Fashion Week proved by her example that not only abstraction will be in use – the theme of flora on clothes also has a place. Harush paired a Paco Rabanne floral dress with Chanel cruise 2019 crisp white Mary Jane shoes, and a surreal Simone Rocha pearl bag added a touch of surrealism to the look.
