The Best Looks from Paris Fashion Week
From Céline to CHANEL, color us impressed.
We don’t like to play favorites at Coveteur, but we do believe in calling a spade a spade. So in that spirit, we’re going to state the obvious: Paris won fashion month. Hands down. Did we see looks we loved in New York, London, and Milan? Absolutely. But it wasn’t until the shows hit the City of Lights that we found ourselves truly inspired and excited about what’s to come for fall. Between Anthony Vaccarello’s neon party dresses at Saint Laurent, the *interesting* turn of events at Céline, and Karl Lagerfeld’s last collection for CHANEL, there was lots to admire. Ahead, our picks for the best looks from Paris Fashion Week.

I am and always have been a fan of an over-the-top look—the type made for a glitzy, glamorous party that I’ll also turn around and wear to the bodega. Thus, when I saw these neon, glow-in-the-dark Saint Laurent dresses, I felt like Anthony Vaccarello was speaking directly to me. Bring on the party (or bodega run)!

OK, Hedi Slimane, you get a gold star for fooling us. Everyone is saying that this collection is a nod to #OldCéline, and I agree. Knee-length pleated skirts, white silk blouses, horse-bit belts—and to top it all off, the dark aviators on every model. This whole look is one of my favorites, and it says it all. Who knows, maybe “Céline” will be coming back, too.
I am predicting many a see-through dress in my future fall wardrobe. This Miu Miu number allows us to see the bones of the look, and now I can’t stop thinking about layering from the inside out. The floral socks and olive-tinted shades are the perfect touches to this seemingly simple look.

Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s latest Chloé collection is everything my closet aspires to be. I fell hard for the silk dresses, thick-rimmed glasses, and tweed suits that echoed the chic attire my grandmothers used to sport. However, I nearly lost it over this dynamite denim ensemble. This right here is all I want to wear come fall.
I swooned over every single piece from Chitose Abe’s latest Sacai show. Each piece that walked down the runway had an unexpected detail to it, whether it was a fur pocket, a cutout shoulder, an extra pair of sleeves, or a pop of bold color. But it was this particular navy, green, and grey herringbone wool coat that put hearts in my eyes. The wide belt and side-zipper detailing are enough to make me want summer to hold off a little bit longer so that I don’t have to wait until next fall to wear it. Crazy? Maybe. But who cares?
I happened to be looking for spring fashion inspiration and found it in a sea of Dior (in their fall collection, nonetheless). Leather, pastel yellow, and animal print all come together to create this edgy yet soft look. The juxtaposition between masculine and feminine in this collection is divine. Plus, this leopard-print bucket hat is everything to me!
In his final collection for CHANEL, Karl Lagerfeld did not disappoint. As each model walked across the snow-covered set, I couldn’t help but feel a wave of sadness and tranquility. This look was one of my favorites and is truly the only outfit I’d ever want to wear in a snowstorm. I’ll be dreaming about these houndstooth trousers all winter long.
