Paris editor Lola Cristall looks back at the many contrasts among the spring–summer 2015 collections, from Sharon Wauchab to Jean Paul Gaultier

Look: The Oratoire du Louvre played host to the Sharon Wauchab collection. The Irish designer brought classical, vintage looks to life as the trendy ’20s, with a pinch of the swinging ’60s, dominated the runway.
Clothes: Sleek silk, sheer translucency and lingerie-like pieces with a plunging neckline added seductiveness for ultra-feminine voluptuousness. Fine, meticulous embroidery radiated.
Look: Yoshiyuki Miyamae proves that a piece of fabric is more than just plain; its simplicity can initiate an evolutionary form. Crinkled material exudes a 3D effect, a trade mark that the Issey Miyake maison is recognized for, created by a method known as 3D Steam Stretch. The technique is formulated when steam is applied to a pre-creased fabric, inducing a third dimension. Comfort, elegance and style are found in each creation. This season, the brand worked around the premise of ‘the creative power of wind’, an influential earth element.
Clothes: While the texture of pure whites opened the show, colour materialized with light bronze, stunning yellow, shades of denim and sapphire blue, with slight streaks of brown, coral and Venetian red put together. The collection was organically unrefined, putting forth comfort and splendour from one-piece ensembles and vests, to short and long dresses. A number were accessorized by large, brimmed, slightly tilted hats.
