Nothing is quite as feminine as a pleated skirt, but at Paris Fashion Week, designers gave a new take on the pleated look with a range of masculine and feminine looks. Case and point, Haider Ackermann’s androgynous outing featured its fair amount of pleat details for the spring season.
Pleats, Please – Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz also incorporated pleat embellishments into the season’s feminine frocks in bold metallic fabrics. Rich lamés and brocades made the detail really shine.
Pleats, Please – At Viktor & Rolf, the Dutch design duo took on the classic schoolgirl uniform and offered a unique take on the shirt, blazer and pleated skirt. Playing with volume and proportion, the brand gave an avant-garde touch to the spring season.
Pleats, Please – Celine designer Phoebe Philo drew her inspiration from vintage photographs of graffiti in 1930s Italy. Philo paired colorful patterns with sheer and pleated skirts to downplay the sporty vibe.
