ELEGANCE AND SILHOUETTE AT ROCHAS

Elegance was on Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s mind. The designer took a historical sojourn into the past for silhouette-strong looks that mined a macaroon colour palette.

A RETURN TO SEXY AT GUY LAROCHE

A return to sex and two archive images of Guy Laroche designs, photographed by Patrick Bertrand and W. Marshall, was all you needed to know about this season’s collection. The collection championed a return to the silhouette with bias-cut dresses, body-con knits, tailored trousers and must-have jackets.

SHE'S GOT CHARISMA AT WANDA NYLON

Wanda Nylon, it’s a brand with a sense of fun and personality – one which won’t match to everyone’s taste, but when it comes to finesse in execution, there’s no faulting it. So sequin suits and head-to-toe cow print seems perfectly accessible. Look, we’re not arguing.

NEITH NYER'S CRAZY COOL

Being twee and zany in just the right amount is no easy feat. Many designers try, fall and do not succeed, and disappear off schedules. In Paris, Neith Nyer is putting forward a strong argument for it as a successful combination. Look one says it all. The shower cap, however, is optional.

NONCHALANT FEMINITY AT LEMAIRE

Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran have made a name for themselves designing casual yet utilitarian inspired ready-to-wear and this season was no different. This time around, the nonchalance was pushed to the max with slouchy and sophisticated looks that came with an I-want-it-now-factor.

SCULPTURAL SENSUALITY AT NEHERA

Nehera's Samuel Drira is known for his tailored pieces in asymmetric cuts and his bold take on oversize clothing.  This season's outstanding looks included workwear pants and a pinstriped long sleeved top worn on an apron dress, topped off with metallic eyelets.
