Here, we cut to the chase and pick the looks that define the collections, epitomise the fashion capital’s new-season mood, or those that are making style headlines. Click back daily for updated instalments. It’s fashion in a flash!

PUNK ROCK AT JUNYA WATANABE

Ziggy Stardust hair and ferocious lashes, plaid and tartan collaged cocoon coats, others that formed dinosaur-like points, studded collars and biker jackets; rock out with Junya. This is how.

COCKTAIL PRECISION AT HAIDER ACKERMANN

Elegant androgyny, Ackermann sent out tuxedos and tailoring that came with a measured hint of evening glamour, a suggestion of a fuzz stole here and shots of cobalt blue there.

MUGLER MAKES A POINT 

David Koma sharpened up the silhouette this season, harking back to the seriously sharp shoulders of Mugler past for power-dressing interspersed with splays of metallic pleats.

RETRO LOVE AT ACNE

This season's ACNE womenswear was all warm, enveloping and fuzzy. The brand's Creative Director, Jonny Johansson tapped into a decisive earth-hued, retro flavored patchwork look, and slightly deconstructed his easy fitted daywear silhouettes to add a certain nonchalance to his collection. Well done!

BLUE SKIES AND PURPLE RAIN AT ELIE SAAB

For the Spring season, it was all about pink, for the upcoming Fall, designers seem to have fallen in love with powerful blue and purple hues. Once again, Elie Saab did what he does best: figure-hugging and feminine silhouettes with a focus on all things glamorous and handmade. Saab's star-studded clientele will certainly be delighted.

THE SPIRIT OF TIMES AT COMME DES GARCONS

Anxiety, fear of the future and how to overcome it, this was what one could sense at Rei Kawakubo's show in Paris. Disorientated models roamed the runway, not knowing in which direction to go, cloaked in tumor shaped creations. A pessimistic yet impressively on-point interpretation of our socio-political status quo.

SEDUCTIVE, SVELTE & SEXY AT NINA RICCI

If you're after a lesson in the art of seductive style then look no further than Guillaume Henry's output at Nina Ricci. Sinuous silhouettes ruled triumphantly and trenches were suitably oversized and bunched at the wrist. This is how to do it.
