Manish Arora: “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”
September 27th, Manish Arora presented his SS19 collection: “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”. Star players, Bright colors and satin bombers… Here’s 5 that you need to know about the line.
1. Paris and its football Players
You won’t see a soccer player’s face on every high fashion piece. But Manish Arora did it! France is the 2018 champion of FIFA World Cup so how could we not celebrate this during Paris Fashion Week? The brand stood out with this idea and French people are loving it.
2. 80’s celebration
The model’s make up were reminding us of a David Bowie’s iconic makeup look. Cindy Lauper’s “Girls just wanna have fun” song was playing in the back. Three years ago the designer collection was inspired by Disco, this year it was glitter, neon, structure shoulders… Models were 80’s even up to the way their hair was brushed. Manish Arora clearly took us back to this era.
3. PSG was here
A couple of hours before the show, Manish Arora announced his deal with Paris-Saint-Germain soccer club (PSG). And we saw this collaboration in the “Girls Just wanna have Fun” collection: PSG and Moi written on a pair of socks. There were also bags with a soccer ball shape. And some shirt were embroiled stars players’ face such as Mbappé or Neymar. Will those pieces be available for the generable public? We’ll see.
The former Paco Rabanne artistic director doesn’t forget his roots. Even though the 80’s is the main topic of the line, Manish Arora managed to lightly insert an Indian vibe through the music played by Tapan Raj.
5. Girls definitely had fun and so did we
“Fun” is the word to describe the line. When you think about the 80’s this is the word that should come to your mind. At The Pavillon Ledoyen, bright colors were highlighted by the sunbeam. Everything was fun, the music the girls, the makeup. The designer put us in a good mood. And we had fun thanks to his collection.
