Kiki Georgiou's latest show reports offer soundtrack details, atmospheric pointers and concept insights. Her coverage of Paris Fashion Week includes notes on Rick Owens, Maison Martin Margiela, Carven and Yohji Yamamoto. At Issey Miyake Georgiou saw a collection 'filled with such positivity and energy that it was hard to resist'. In a similar spirit, Nicola Formichetti 'time travelled to the sixties and nineties while effortlessly catapulting Mugler the brand forward'.
At Haider Ackermann 'the women that walked out of the mist seemed battle worn' dorned in a collection of contrasting 'fragility and strength', while at Hussein Chalayan they wore dresses resembling 'a crusty artist's palette with layer upon layer of paint or an old terracotta wall now cracking with age', writes Georgiou. Her personal highlight of the week was the 'feminist' showing at Givenchy, 'a true moment when everything stops and we’re watching something very personal and emotional unfold in front of our fashion-fatigued eyes'.
