Paris Fashion Week 2016: backstage at Cédric Charlier

Paris Fashion Week 2016: backstage at Cédric Charlier

On Wednesday, March 2, we had an appointment at the Pavillon Cambon to check out Cédric Charlier's final collection at Paris Fashion Week (he'll be showing in New York next year). For his farewell presentation, the Belgian designer was inspired by old photos of sailors, with navy blue, canary yellow and bright red featuring heavily in the color palette.

Paris Fashion Week: Cédric Charlier

A few hours before the show and there's plenty of excitement behind-the-scenes. Before the models get dressed, they spend some time in the hands of PFW's official sponsor L'Oréal Paris.

"We wanted contemporary women, vibrant and sexy," explained the brand's makeup expert, Karim Rahman. The skin was hydrated and nourished before unifying the tone with the help of liquid foundation. The mouth was discretely dewy and natural thanks to the help of a nude balm. The eyes were left bare, with the exception of a streak of white paint across the brows.

As for hair, it was styled into loose waves and then twisted into a low ponytail to resemble a sailor knot. This simple element pulled together the spirit of the collection.

Finally, it's time for the models to parade down the runway! Striped dresses, wide-leg trousers, jackets inspired by the classic yellow raincoat... all had their place! Of course, we still find the signature aesthetic of this talented designer with oversized pieces and an androgynous edge.

There's no doubt that Charlier is going out with a bang, even with his last show he's managed to shake things up in the world of French fashion.
