Plaits appeared on the spring/summer 2017 catwalks in every imaginable form – from skater-girl braided buns at Dior to bohemian skinny plaits at Roberto Cavalli and romantic rope braids at Valentino and everything in between. As Guido Palau told us backstage at Dior, “there’s a plait to suit everyone”. Pick your favourite style below.
Complement spring’s sporty silhouettes with extra-long twin braids – at Emporio Armani, extensions were woven into the plaits so that they reached down to models’ waists.
Guido Palau cited skater girls as one of the references for the plaited buns he created at Dior, worn scraped back from the face and offset by J’Adior earrings.
Bohemian girls will be immediately drawn to the laid-back styles at Roberto Cavalli – softly tousled waves with two skinny plaits at the front.
James Pecis’s cool-girl braids at Simone Rocha were complemented by dewy skin and baby-hair strands around the face, giving models a post-workout look somewhat less sweaty than the reality.
For the true romantic, Valentino’s extra-long loose plaits were fastened low at the nape of the neck, whilst stray strands of hair around the face made for a pretty, youthful look.
Forgetting the scene-stealing face flowers by Val Garland just for the moment, the plaits at Preen By Thornton Bregazzi were messy, haphazard and anything but preppy.
Archived beanie, abandoned Basque, hat you’ll want to wear this spring will (only) the baseball cap.

Wherever Barbara Palvin goes, there’s a little dust storm of controversy. Back when she was a 19-year-old Victoria’s Secret model, Selena Gomez fans blamed her for the singer’s breakup with Justin Bieber after Palvin was spotted with him at a Broadway show. Palvin has since been linked to One Direction’s Niall Horan; she’s been seen partying with Ed Sheeran; and, since the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, she’s been rumored to be dating Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton.
On the day I chatted with Palvin, who is at home in the countryside outside of Budapest, she laughed at her reputation as a man-eater—though the laughter was undercut by a clear note of annoyance. Days earlier, a British tabloid posted a picture of her sitting on a man’s lap at an event for the Italian lingerie brand Intimissimi. “That’s not Lewis Hamilton! Barbara Palvin gets cozy with mystery man,” the headline gasped.
“Normally, I don’t let it get to me,” she tells me. The “mystery man” was, in fact, her Italian agent, a dear friend. “I actually hang out with a lot of guys, and whenever I hang out with a famous guy, I’m instantly dating them. So I just laugh it off.” This time, though, Palvin said the comments crossed the line. “It was: ‘Of course she’s hitting on that guy. He’s probably old and rich.’ Oh bravo, Daily Mail !”
No, Palvin doesn’t need to date rich men to belong to the jet set. “It drives me a little crazy that people would think that.”
Approaching the cold season and these days I think of my fur, ecological, here is some model chosen by me for you. Let an idea, it is always missing one!
One piece of outerwear that is making a big comeback for the fall 2016 season happens to be the bomber jacket. From the runways to fast fashion brands and everything in between, get on trend with a bomber. Think it can be worn only one way? Think again. There are satins, floral embroideries and bold prints. So wear with your favorite jeans or even over a dress for an ideal casual look. See more bomber jackets below and shop the trend.
An original touch and fun for this Fall Winter will definitely pom pom fur, synthetic, animal characters or simple hairy balls … even anti stress!
