The end of Paris means a final farewell to the fall 2015 show season. The extended week in the City of Lights was jam-packed with presentations, parties — and, the highlight, a cameo from Derek Zoolander and Hansel — but let's take a minute to focus on the clothes.
The '70s was still present, but certainly on a smaller scale than in New York, London and Milan. It wasn't forgotten, though, at shows like Chloé, Elie Saab and Sonia Rykiel. The trends in Paris riffed on what we've seen so far this season — so let's get straight to it.
Scroll through to see Paris's biggest trends.
Unfortunate name aside, the pussy bow is being lovingly embraced by Paris. Done or undone, uptight librarian or not, it's clear that this one has plenty of possibilities.
Those cold fronts are more influential than we thought, but leave it to Paris to keep you both warm and chic at the same time. Not interested in messing around with a scarf? This trend may be for you.
Accent pockets spiced up coats and dresses in Paris. Andrew Gn and Elie Saab even decided to use the popular fur option.
Disciples of Nicolas Ghesquière? Maybe. It's not as though he invented the short A-line silhouette we saw so much this past week, but we would be remiss to say that he didn't have some influence on its resurgence.
Through neutrals (Céline, Jacquemus) or something more bold (Tsumori Chisato, Balmain), Paris designers looked to color blocking this season.
Are you sick of your sleeves being too short, and your wrists being too cold? Paris may have the solution for you. Warm up with the super-long sleeve. But if you're not into that kind of thing…
… Paris still has you covered. Or uncovered, as the case may be with sleeveless coats (or as some call them, long vests). Talk about versatility.
