The pièce(s) de résistance of Paris Fashion Week.
Paris flexed it's fashion muscles this season with beautiful, confident collections on every single one of the nine whole days that is PFW. These were the particularly eye-catching and exciting shows.
Actual gasps escaped me as I watched the Rochas show. This season is sublime. A wonderfully 'undone' parade of 70's-esque silhouettes in colours that don't quite work but somehow do, styled with hair that confirmed that 'ah, this old thing?' look. The crowning moment was the chartreuse dress with delicate green embroidered lace overlay, worn with cobalt socks and chunky platform sandals. A triumph.
Key piece: the socks and sandals really take the biscuit here.
Key piece: it's all in the styling; wear your gorgeous gown, but keep it simple with straight, centre-parted hair and classic accessories.
Key piece: never has a black puffa jacket been so desirable. I want.
Key piece: let's be honest, these pieces aren't going to make it into the average womans' wardrobe - but don't let me stop you draping yourself in your favourite woollen blanket.
Key piece: a pair of dark sunglasses to tough up your summer sundress.
Like all good things, fashion month has come to an end. That's all from the catwalks until September...
