It also fueled our obsession with all things navy.
Miuccia Prada is not known for her practicality, but this season -- with her rain-ready gear and quilted jackets -- she seemed to be focusing on just that.
We love a good suit. And Wednesday at Hermes, designer Christophe Lemaire sent out plenty of great ones.
The lauded designer's first show for the house did not disappoint.
Did anyone else get Game of Thrones vibes?
Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli aren't ones to skimp on details. Many of pieces shown for fall 2014 Tuesday in Paris were so intricate, it's difficult to look at them twice without discovering something you perhaps didn't see the first time around.
There were aisles upon aisles of Chanel-branded products -- including, surprise, carb-tastic pasta -- as chic "shoppers" (see: Cara Delevingne) strolled around in the house's youthful, colorful clothes. And, more sneakers!
The designer took on another music subculture in the form of the sparkly minidresses, black patent leather boots and shaggy bangs.
If we could wear head-to-toe Stella all of the time, we'd be skipping through life, too.
It was a David Lynch kind of day.
Under Creative Director Phoebe Philo, Celine has been flying so high for the past few years that one expects, naturally, for one collection to be a bit less of a winner those before it -- but that collection is not fall/winter 2014, shown at Paris Fashion Week on Sunday.
Saturday is sort of PFW's version of hump day. Luckily, there was good fashion to get us through. My top five looks from the last 10 hours:
The Swedish brand has built its reputation around a certain kind of left-of-center cool, where nothing seems to fit right and the colors are sometimes just plain odd. We saw plenty of pieces here that are sure to be a hit among among those who worship the label's weirdness.
The designer's usual French-girl chic was front-and-center, though there was a move toward more sculptural shapes -- along with a play on grunge and military -- that looked pretty damn intriguing.
Highlights from the day, including Roland Mouret, Maison Martin Margiela, and more.
I am inclined to say that I can't believe it's only day three of Paris Fashion Week. But I am also loathe to say it, given that I will feel the same way up until day six, when I will begin saying, "I can't believe it's almost over."
Sex and flash with a little bit of tomboy thrown in: We could see the pop star -- and Olivier Rousteing muse -- wearing so much of this safari-tinged collection.
On her fifth anniversary with Tom Brady, no less, but we're sure he can forgive her.
Last night's H&M runway show was a nice break from the seriousness that is Paris Fashion Week.
The optical illusion prints, the colors...dizzying but so well done.
As always with Pugh, the collection was rife with extremes. But there were wearable elements, too.
Donatella Versace protégé Anthony Vaccarello certainly creates provocative clothes: he likes his skirts short, and his blouses sheer. But for fall, the Versus guest designer worked the skimpy angle in a whole new way.
