Paris Fashion Week AW 18 capped a month-long escapade into the intersection of fantasy and culture, as four of the world’s fashion capitals showcased innovations in design on the runways. But in the City of Light, fashion spilled from the catwalks to the sidewalks as Parisians braved the cold showing the world such swank street style.
Faux fur, jewel-toned hues, and a melange of streetwear and haute athleisure continue to dominate trends on and off Parisian runways. In the streets, accessories from sunglasses to statement bags elevate looks by fine tuning details. On the catwalk, some houses like Dior touted political messaging, while others like Yves Saint Laurent favored ready-to-wear for the millennial jet-set woman. Experimental avant-garde looks from Noir Kei Ninomiya innovate the approach to garments. How have these looks trickled into the streets? Minimal effort for maximum affect is a cornerstone of Parisian dressing, an adage brought to life in this collection of the best street style of Paris Fashion Week.
