When it comes the frenzy of the fashion week run, Paris always seems to offer up a few game changers and this season was no exception. From strong, striking styling mixed with floaty feminine fabrics, there's some serious inspiration for thinking outside the box when it comes to autumn dressing.
We were particularly impressed with the tail end of the week (ahem, Isabel Marant and Christian Dior) and it's safe to say we found some real gems for autumn. Scroll down to see our picks from Friday's shows.
The sense of fun and frivolity that women the world over love about Isabel Marant hasn't been lost this season. It was a subtle ode to the '80s but don't get your teasing comb out just yet: the French stylemaker has truly modernised the era. (And made golf-chic a thing. Genius, no?)
A ladylike love affair, Dior's Fall show had hints of volume: puffs of shape on sleeves or skirts, oversized jackets that folder over the edges of shoulders like a neat, fur-covered envelopes. The waist played a part as big as the plum shade of lipstick that marked every model and because if this nod to glamour, the brand has 'alluring' on lock.
