Galliano has osmosed Margiela’s essence to produce a unique fashion hybrid that is defiant and eerily beautiful.
The sense of occasion that permeated Donatella Versace’s new couture collection transcended the banalities of red carpet cliché.
Giorgio Armani's nod to the late Franca Sozzani was largely conceptual, present more in the restraint that permeated than in the collection itself.
Paris is on a post-Macron high, but the chord Lagerfeld struck at Chanel was all things must pass.

It was the red carpet flou that ultimately carried this collection, with gowns floating in contrasting tiers and ribbons of crèpe or tulle that nodded not only to Elsa’s wicked way with colour but to Guyon’s Valentino past.
Iris Van Herpen
Only colour seems to remain an unconquered territory here. As one of few designers genuinely looking to the future to be inspired, let’s hope Van Herpen will programme the full spectrum into haute couture’s uncertain tomorrow.
