Highlights From Paris Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2018
Determined, refined, feminine, self-assured: the Louis Vuitton woman has many facets this season, striding confidently into the future.
Fall colours take centre stage at Chanel, with dresses and coats cut long for autumn/winter 2018/2019. The label's much-loved tweed featured heavily in the collection.
Androgynous silhouettes contrasted with certain more kitsch creations at Stella McCartney.
Faithful to the label's DNA, the Alexander McQueen collection featured rock, Gothic and romantic inspirations, mainly with red and black creations.
Shiatzy Chen showed laid-back, chic, almost androgynous silhouettes, as well as some more romantic, feminine looks.
Hybrid outerwear creations from Sacai are part padded jacket, part coat.
The 1970s were in the spotlight at Giambattista Valli, joined by the label's signature feminine silhouettes.
Olivier Rousteing looked to the future at Balmain, but with a few 1980s inspirations for good measure. The collection featured vibrant colours, with fluorescent flashes, as well as pieces crafted from plastic materials.
Each x Other

Comme des Garçons,
Silhouettes were supersized at Comme des Garçons, with bright colors, mixed materials and fun prints.

Sonia Rykiel's masculine-inspired collection won over the fashion world while paying homage to the Parisian woman. The Sonia Rykiel woman is strong, but doesn't take herself too seriously for autumn/winter 2018/2019.
While Hermès went big on leather, Givenchy had fun with fake fur, seen on coats, sleeveless jackets and turtle necks.
The eagerly awaited collection from freshly revived label Poiret reinterpreted its legendary designer's key pieces. The kimono, for example, gets a modern, laid-back cut and comes in lamé fabric.
