Paris Haute Couture Week continued with eagerly awaited shows from Chanel, Alexis Mabille, Julien Fournié, Giorgio Armani Privé, Alexandre Vauthier and Givenchy.

The second day proved a veritable ode to the romantic, the bucolic and the mysterious, while also ramping up sensuality.

Chanel

The day started at the city's Grand Palais, with a show from French fashion house Chanel. For the occasion, Karl Lagerfeld turned the space into an indoor garden, complete with roses, sand and a fountain as its centrepiece. Both modern and retro, the collection featured lots of Chanel's signature tweed suits, matched with pointed boots, as well as dresses embroidered and embellished with diamanté, feathers and beads. Looks were accessorized with veils adorned with flowers, in keeping with the show's garden scenery.

Alexis Mabille's collection was multi-faceted, drawing inspiration from all corners of the world. Japanese kimonos inspired pieces such as this dress.

Julien Fournié

Julien Fournié presented a collection with a fantasy vibe, where a host of Asian heroines modelled floaty and ethereal looks, sometimes with Trompe l'oeil effects. There were revisited kimonos, obi belts and origami-inspired pieces.

Givenchy

For her first haute couture show for Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller channeled a mysterious vibe. The garden theme was used again, but this time at night, adding an enigmatic feel to this collection of entirely black and white creations.
