Paris Fashion Week seemed to be going on forever, and now that it’s finally over we wish it were back already. This year’s Fall collections were absolutely stunning, with haute-couture brands like Jean-Paul Gaultier, Dior, Chanel and Louis Vuitton, among others. Speaking of these last brands, the two fashion houses rivaled a little over each other, as both seemed to have similar color palettes. Through their themes were quite distinctive from one another, Chanel and Louis Vuitton had similarities worth noting. Take a look with me at the two Fall 2018 collections.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2018 collection was truly iconic. The brand took a classic color palette (black and white) and added accents of warm colors to lift the whole collection up. This collection is absolutely perfect for Pre-Fall, if you’re a believer in such seasons. The orange, red, and mustard yellow allude to the summer’s warmer days, but the strict black and white tones down the look to be more fall-appropriate and less ‘in your face.’ Chanel has a lot less color in its palette, but they do have similar shapes and patterns (the striped and checkered symbols). Check out the Louis Vuitton Fall 2018 collection:

Chanel

Chanel is known for its monochromatic color palette, often more sombre than not. For this Pre-Fall 2018 Collection, Chanel incorporated elements of French culture into its designs, while adding contemporary popular culture to the mix as well. This creates a mix of old-fashioned jeweled heels, thick sweaters, french sailor hats, with extra-long sleeved sweaters and jackets (a design just recently added to the list of  recent ‘trends’). The navy colors definitely represent Chanel in itself, the haute-couture house always mixing up dark colors with jewelry for a very royal look. In comparison to Louis Vuitton, Chanel definitely did not incorporate as much color, but a lot more pattern and texture. There’s no way for me to choose which collection was my favorite, but take a look and make your personal opinion.
