Paris editor Lola Cristall is currently back in France to cover fashion week there, and a full recap will come later.
Meanwhile, Dutch designer Liselore Frowijn has shown on day one, with an autumn–winter 2016–17 collection inspired by late French sculptor, painter and filmmaker Niki de St Phalle.
The collection, dubbed Let’s Hear It for the Lions, is targeted at creative, strong women, and has a brightly coloured palette using primary colours, with the intent of making a bold statement.
Frowijn showed blazers, dresses and skirts, with layering, and the inventive use of punched-out polka-dot holes. Accessories included wooden necklaces, chokers and knotted foam earrings.
‘They’re very naïvely done in a bold way with primary colours, bold shapes, round volumes, polka dots. It’s a very optimistic way of creating and I wanted to catch this energy that I got from her work in the collection,’ says Frowijn.
The cheerful, fun collection uses both new and recycled material, sometimes in the same outfit.
