Hedi Slimane has continuously celebrated rock’n’roll since taking over the helms of Saint Laurent, but this season he did it with even more of a vintage twist. Ford Image’s Lexi and Ford New York’s Yulia M walked in looks that were a mash-up of time periods. Even still, these girls gave off rock star vibes.
Ford Image’s Hailey Baldwin walked Sonia Rykiel’s S/S 2015 show alongside Ford Image’s Lexi. Rykiel is known for dressing the kind of Parisian femmes that are a staple of fashion blogs, and this season was no different. These were some it clothes for some it girls.
Sacai, the Japanese label designed by Chitose Abe, has been slowly gaining momentum since it began showing at Paris Fashion Week a few years ago. Ford Image’s Lexi walked the brand’s runway in one of a string of high profile appearances this season. This girl, like the brand itself, is on the cusp of greatness.
Ford Image’s Jane walked Leonard’s S/S 2015 runway in floral prints and silky pastels. It isn’t the first time this season we’ve seen the model in something dainty and feminine (see Les Copains and Bottega Veneta’s runways), but the effect was just as breathtaking.
Phoebe Philo always delivers some unexpected pieces on her runway, and this season the most unexpected might have been ballet flats reimagined as heels. Ford Image’s Lexi sported a pair on Céline’s S/S 2015 runway, looking every bit the part of the refined woman Philo designs for. Hey, if the shoe fits.
The Givenchy catwalk saw 2 firsts: that of Ford Image’s Tegan and Shannon walking as exclusives for Riccardo Tisci’s S/S 2015 show for the brand. They were joined by Ford Image’s Lexi, who is no stranger to the designer’s runway herself. This was proof that good things really do come in threes.
Veronique Leroy‘s S/S 2015 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Zoe, was undoubtedly 1940s inspired. The model walked in mid-length skirts and loose silhouettes with slicked back hair and ruby red lips. This girl could have been a silver screen star.
Acne Studios is one of the main purveyors of cool on the fashion scene today, and Ford Image’s Lexi was a part of it for S/S 2015. Hitting the runway in an all white look, the model gave off a certain savoir faire. This was a girl who knew what she was doing.
Viktor & Rolf are great at doing a kind of off-kilter femininity, as exhibited by Ford Image’s Lexi on the S/S 2015 runway. The model walked in 2 looks with oversized frills and asymmetrical proportions. But a girl like this kept the looks completely balanced.
Tsumori Chisato mixed the 1960s with a kind of Japanese surrealism for her S/S 2015 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Jane. Bright colors and oversized flowers punctuated the collection, standing in stark contrast to Jane’s pristine makeup and poise. It was like watching Alice fall down the rabbit hole.
