Editor’s Picks: The 6 Best Looks From Paris (So Far)

By

Paris Fashion Week is only two days in, and already we have favorites from Balenciaga, Dries, Rochas, and more. Below, the top five looks so far:

1. Rochas seemed like an experiment in color theory, with canary yellows paired with blush-tone pinks and tangerine gloves put with sky-blue skirts. But it was the turquoise gloves with a bejeweled, green bomber jacket that caught our eye.

2. At Balenciaga, reversed workman's denim trousers complemented more luxurious pieces, like a felted marine-blue wool coat with a hefty utility zipper. The coat also featured a glossy beaver-fur front, belted with a hefty silver buckle. But what we really loved were those woven, corded muffs.

3. At Dries Van Noten, we loved the gestural, slapdash floral designs painted with silver acrylic paint — especially on this wool overcoat, which came with bright, contrasting floral prints.

4. Manish Arora presented a psychedelic collection whose influences ranged from rave style to indigenous European folk costumes. But this look — with its neon-printed jacket and candy-striper pants — seemed to unify both ideas.

5. At Carven, a blush satin dress with a zip down the front offered an understated silhouette — but it was the fur, worn jauntily at the elbow, and the clutch held close that seemed like the perfect cocktail look for fall.

6. At Gareth Pugh, mille-feuille ruffles got the increasingly popular funnel-neck treatment, but not without a full skirt and a huge hat to match.
