The global fashion elite have packed their (probably enormous) bags one last time in order to spend a week dashing through the streets of Paris for the final stretch of fashion month. NYC has been conquered, London mastered and Milan well and truly blitzed, so now it's the turn of what's arguably the chicest city of them all to play host to autumn's freshest trends.
In Milan, it was all glamour, glamour, glamour—but what else would you have expected? In London, grunge was high up on the agenda, which makes sense for the fashion capital that just loves to be casual. And way back when—at the start of September—New York's streets were chock-full of minimalism in its every possible guise.
So what of the PFW scene so far? For starters, the rain has made it nigh on impossible for anyone to consider wearing their regular summer clothes. That means suiting has come out of hibernation (all checked or tartan), coats are on the menu (albeit lighter-weight ones), there are autumnal alternatives to wear with jeans (hello, new statement-top trend) and colours that inject a little life into the basic, neutral items many of our wardrobes revolve around (scroll to the bottom for that surprise hue).
