fall prêt-à-porter, paris: anne valérie hash
by Jeremy Danté
anne valérie hash presents a lavish, sexy chic collection of casual glamour & effortless style. with a developed knowledge of design, hash has gained experience in fashion working for major labels nina ricci, chloé & chanel in the past. after graduating from the chambre syndicale de la couture parisienne in 1995, hash debuted her first collection for her namesake label in 2001. with collections of couture & children’s already up & running, the ready-to-wear collection seen here is inspired & authentically beautiful. whether a single piece or as whole looks, the collection serves up it’s share of seductive style without forcing you one way or the other. from casual draping to the rich palette of soft neutrals, black & navy with slight use of metallic undertones, the collection is timeless & still modern with it’s style direction. i loved the layering of each piece & admire the construction, as well as the tailoring seen for each look. chic ankle boots were donned by the models, who walked the runway with a dark purple lip. stunning design is seen as i find myself even more inspired after viewing this collection. as an early high note for the tail end of the show season, this is already one of the best in paris this season. every look is dope.
