During this fashion show models were wearing knee-length skirts with open zip, comfortable, almost sports, ones that every woman would choose. “Fashion isn’t just for the èlite people, but now fashion is for everyone, and it is open and driven by social media! Fashion is Instagramable!”

In this Paris Fashion Week pants are wide and soft: in Ellery collection pants are “bell” style and do not exceed the ankle; there are appliques and brooches (stars, faces, mouths)… These brooches recall us the emoticons, and they appear on coats and jackets (in Maison Margiela collection for example).
