Now that the dust has settled on Paris Fashion Week, let us look back on the collections that gave us a lot to talk about.

One of the most breathtaking shows of the season was Dries Van Noten’s. For the spring season he has partnered with Christian Lacroix, who was the king of ’s fashion. With a tandem made of designers who are not afraid of colors and prints, the collection was exuberant, joyful and loaded with fanciful ideas.

There were the poufs and feathers we’ve come to associate with Lacroix, however, these were tempered with Van Noten’s hand. Sweatshirts were paired with ruffled trousers and silk skirts, tank tops were worn with beribboned tailored pants. There was a shocking pink opera-style coat worn on top of gold shorts. And as a finale, a bride in a white tank and jeans under a gauzy dress with sprays of asymmetric ruffles and feathers.

Pierpoalo Piccioli’s collection for Valentino was a masterful study in elegant restraint. While he has shown us plenty of times what he can do with fabric and embellishment, this time he was most successful when he did away with ornamentation. He instead chose to explore what he can do with a white shirt: turning it into feather festooned blouse or a smart tunic or a shirt dress with exaggerated sleeves or finished with a tiered ruffled tulle skirt. It was simply sublime.

At Givenchy, Clair Waight Keller wrestled between the minimalism of the s and the shapes of the s. There were plenty of tailored pieces including dresses and skirts in sumptuous leather and a gorgeous and sleek cream elongated blazer. But the sudden introduction of Liberty-like floral prints via turtleneck blouses and dresses were a bit discordant with the stronger minimalist pieces.

At Saint Laurent, the light show that opened the runway parade sort of eclipsed the clothes which was, like in past collections, filled with peasant style dresses and rocker chic short get ups. The saving grace was the permutations of the tuxedo look that closed the show albeit a little too many and too self-indulgent.

At Hedi Slimane’s Celine, the runway could have been a sequel to the Saint Laurent fashion show because there were the same gold peasant style dresses and the knee-high boots and the ’s inflected jackets.

At Chanel, variations of tweed ensembles sashayed up and down a set made to look like a Parisian rooftop. The clothes could have used a bit more energy but I suppose the Chanel client likes to stick to the tried and tested.

Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen gave tour de force of a collection that showed what a creative mind can do. Her exploration of shape and mix of materials made for a collection that finely threaded fantasy and practicality.
