Our Favorite Style Stars from Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018

Our street-style photographer Crystal Nicodemus on the ladies whose looks commanded her lens. 

Paris Fashion Week was a maelstrom of standout fashion and chaotic venues, with the city as a stunning backdrop to classic styles. Trench coats and menswear-inspired suiting were among the top themes. Texture continued to command, with lots of corduroy, shearling, velvet and silks. Patterns tended to be more masculine than we’ve seen of late: more plaid than floral, more stripes than animal. The palette was also a bit more subdued than we saw in New York; tans and browns abounded, with pops of red and yellow to keep things bold.

It’s been an absolute pleasure sharing this journey with you all.  I hope you’ve enjoyed peeking in on the wildest month of the fashion calendar. Merci, mes amis!

On the final day of Paris Fashion Week, Chanel brought down the (green)house with nature-themed escapism starring a waterfall and Kaia Gerber. The show displayed awe-inspiring, colorful, feminine silhouettes that have us already clamoring for spring. Not so fast, though.

For now, we’re clearly counting on the cold weather, while taking pages from these street-style aficionados’ fall outfits. Ahead, four final (totally weather-appropriate) looks from Paris’s streets that you can shop now.

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Chanel

The history: Iconoclast Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s now-iconic tweed suits and little black dresses were a revolution in the 1920s. Her black-and-white palette and borrowed-from-the-boys designs rebelled against the restrictive dress codes of the previous century by introducing society women to the elegance and comfort of simplicity. She remains the most internationally identifiable name in high fashion.

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Valentino

The history: Although he officially retired in January 2008, Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani maintains considerable fashion fame and influence. Since 1960, when the designer established his maison in Rome, Valentino has been synonymous with his romantic, elegant gowns worn by the world’s most glamorous women: Jacqueline Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana. His decidedly feminine designs and signature poppy color—rosso Valentino, a trademark mix of 100% magenta, 100% yellow and 10% black—are a recurring presence on red carpets, as is the octogenarian.

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Dries Van Noten

The history: In 1986, six fashion graduates from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts drove a rented truck filled with their collections to London Fashion Week. A well-documented chapter in fashion history, that road trip introduced the world to the Antwerp Six, a gang of designers including Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten who put Belgian style on the map.
