Paris Fashion Week: The latest looks

  • Lost in the supermarket

    Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel show was a highlight of Paris Fashion Week so far. The set was a grocery-store interior and the collection was a contemporary take on the label’s signature looks which were teamed with urban touches – such as sporty footwear. (Reuters)

  • Oh, Jackie

    The Chanel tweed suit appeared in a rich claret-red that gave it a contemporary feel. Recalling Jackie O, the outsized sunglasses were another old-school touch given a revamp. (AFP/Getty)

  • Grand Statement

    The transformation of the Grand Palais in Paris into a supermarket was a bold move by Chanel, a fashion house that specialises in spectacular, extravagant sets for its shows. (Getty Images)

  • Sweet dreams

    Pastel, flecked tweed combined with fur in the palest of pink and blue made for a super-feminine, candy-floss effect. A touch of day-glo pink eye make-up topped off the look. (Reuters)

  • Best foot forward

    Tweed is another Chanel staple that featured in the Autumn/Winter runway show – but teamed with trainers for an extra edge. (AFP/Getty)

  • In the bag

    The boxy bag is a Chanel signature classic. Here it is redefined in fur and with a pop art sensibility. Along with netted gloves with zip detail, the look is quirky. (Getty Images)

  • Colour pop

    Exaggerated versions of Chanel staples like oversized sunglasses and pearls featured strongly in the collection, making for a fresh, irreverent mood – with more than a hint of pop-art wit. The palette was a vibrant combination of pinks, oranges, yellows and purples. (Getty Images)

  • Double trouble

    Girl of the moment Cara Delvingne joined Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld for the finale of the show. The irreverent supermodel was a good fit for the collection, which was big on urban mood, with Rihanna on the soundtrack, trainers and bared midriffs −plus plenty of fluoro. (Getty Images)

  • Shining stars

    There was a mid-1960s mood at the Saint Laurent runway show, as designer Hedi Slimane sent models – including Edie Campbell − out in glittery shift dresses and black tights, teamed with patent-black boots. (Getty Images)

  • Pale and interesting

    Complementing the 1960s vibe, there was a fragile, retro look to the hair and make-up at the Saint Laurent runway show – with heavy kohl and understated lip − that recalled Warhol youthquaker Edie Sedgwick. (Getty Images)

Chanel’s runway show is a supermarket sweep and Saint Laurent takes the 1960s by storm at the Autumn/Winter collections.
