With a mix of snow and circus acts, Couture Week in Paris wasn't the springy dream we'd hoped it would be. Chanel did build a verdant, poolside garden inside the Grand Palais, giving showgoers a much-needed respite from the cold, but other than that, attendees were forced to face the harsh elements of winter. 

The sun did make an appearance on the first day, allowing guests en route to Dior's acrobatic presentation to wear camel-colored blazers and denim jackets and leave their heavier coats at home. But as temperatures dropped, we saw an uptick in puffers — particularly Nanushka's brown vegan leather one – shaggy fur toppers and an array of technicolor trenches. Bright-red seemed to be the most popular shade in outerwear, with the street style crowd wearing wool, leather and nylon iterations of the standout hue.
