PARIS, France — It’s easy to see why buyers like Rahul Mishra, as there’s always a market for pretty, immaculately crafted clothes.

There was some nice interplay between frills and pleats, alongside an interesting focus on shoulders – either revealing or exaggerating them with three-dimensional embroidery – and a kimono jacket that was made to wear back-to-front. Perfectly pleasant, but was it enough? After all, this is Paris. And pretty can only take you so far in this city.
