There was a motley crew of colors and patterns outside the haute couture shows in Paris this week, and we aren't just talking about the anti-fur protestors. Of the many fashion weeks that have already happened this year — from women's ready-to-wear to men's — couture is undeniably the fanciest, and as such, fashion's insiders dressed to the nines. Whether it was with textures or florals or geometric prints, showgoers weren't afraid to don statement-making looks — complemented, of course, by eye-catching bags, poofs and sunglasses. It is Paris, after all.
