Christian Wijnants, a fabric of Dreams – Paris Fashion Week 2019
Christian Wijnants RTW 2019 FW19/20 collection – Womenswear
Each season Christian Wijnants steps forward with his personal fashion narrative, but this season he took a stride forward in terms of the sophistication and surprise he offered for the coming season.
The opening rose pink silk dress set the tone and pace for the show, beautiful colour, a terrific soft full flowing shape and great proportions; that is long but not too long, the soft bow at the waist controlled the front of the dress, the back swung out and flowed free, the neat shirt collar and long sleeves balanced this volume perfectly.
Knit wear played a huge part in the collection from a sweater and skirt combination in ochre yellow with a arched sleeve and walking skirt through to the violet sweater and skirt where the sweaters sleeves spiralled and bellowed around in curves.
The immaculately seamed and worked dresses made with knit in stripes, florals, plain and geometric patterns which were patchworked into easy silhouettes; a simple long sleeved top which flared out into a soft skirt.
Huge blankets over tunics and skirts or pants featured black lozenge shapes checks, whilst solid colour used top to toe outfits included a deep Parma violet, a rich green, midnight blue and powder blue.
Coats wrapped and belted for warmth and elegance and every piece with style, and grace, nothing heavy lumpy or overworked.
There is always a joyful yet calm quality to Wijnants clothes, but more than ever this season the elegance and nonchalant chic was very strong. A bitter chocolate softly draped silk charmeuse dress with matching fur clutch and a similar look in deep apple green with an orange peel coloured fur clutch were divine.
There was a slight hint of Babe Paley and the New York Ladies Who Lunch to the collection, would that those clients could be shopping the collection of Christian Wijnants.
