After a month+ of consecutive international fashion shows, it can be hard to not only remember what we’ve seen, but to get a second to glance at all of the astonishing details seems sadly unlikely.
That being said, we wanted to take a moment and look back at everything one could easily miss.
Here’s a look at our favorite elements from all of the Paris shows starting with Rochas’ angular techno take on 50′s starlet glamor as seen above.
The espadrille, a classic summer stand-by, got an ultra-chic re-thinking chez Valentino via delicate and forever feminine sheer lace.

At YSL, strict buns were given the gilded treatment with sculptural gold crescents.
Frothy, lady-like confections were topped off with statement making lattice worked headpieces.
Call it a dropped sleeve if you will…But the sculptural arms on Rick Owen’s jackets felt modern and as proportions go, completely new.
The bold prints on this McQueen number make a strong case for McQueen finally joining the ranks of Haute Couturiers.
What can we say? The work on this Givenchy peplum number is simply to-die-for and original. -Naveed Hussain
