Proceedings started early with Jacquemus showing the evening before the party commenced in earnest — it was the only night he could secure the arty venue, the Picasso Museum, the perfect place to display those deco rond carré heels.
And then they were off with Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Christian Dior fishnet boots, proving the catch of PFW day 1. That evening, dramatic feathered concoctions flew down the runway at Saint Laurent while the Eiffel Tower blinked in the background for a touch of added sparkle.
Then on day 3, not only did Off-White’s Virgil Abloh collaborate with Jimmy Choo for his Princess Diana-inspired glass slipper pumps, but he also pulled in original supermodel Naomi Campbell. She modelled them with aplomb and also closed his show.
The final day of Paris Fashion Week saw another clear winner. Chanel shoe designer Laurence Dacade created a series of plastic fantastic styles that actually made us long for it to rain – in reality, as opposed to the monolithic waterfall that constituted Karl Lagerfeld’s set in the Grand Palais.
Elsewhere, a dynamic and ultra modern new sneaker shape at Louis Vuitton offered a great contemporary foil for those old fashioned frock coats that sashayed down Gheseqiere’s subterranean runway at the Louvre Museum. Oh, and the “Stranger Things” T-shirt. Catch that did you?
