Here are some candid shots of their enviable style in action. Take notes.

Saint Laurent’s sparkly and leggy presentation at the Eiffel Tower promised a spectacular beginning to Paris Fashion Week—and the runway shows have not disappointed. Neither have our favorite bloggers and Insta-stars, who continue to give us their most dazzling street styles in the City of Light. With a steady stream of power suiting on our social feeds, a sharply tailored woman is clearly fall 2017’s fashion muse. Below, a collection of our favorite looks (plus links to shop similar styles) during this final stretch in France.

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.

Please Meet the Real Mademoiselle Chanel—and Your New Favorite Handbag Collection

2017 is the year of Gabrielle. You’ve known her all these years as Coco, but with today’s launch of Chanel’s GABRIELLE bag, Karl Lagerfeld truly gets us on a first-name basis with the ultimate style icon.

What’s more, this intimate invitation—and the handbag reveal that comes with it—is a call to all women everywhere to embrace their ultimate identity. After all, it was Gabrielle who said, “I decided who I wanted to be, and that is who I am.”

Hey, Toronto! You Can Meet Vejas Kruszewski in SPACE LAB at Nordstrom

We’ve had the pleasure of standing in a Paris Fashion Week showroom twice now with the lauded and awarded-young SPACE designer Vejas Kruszewski (no really, though; he’s just barely two decades old), and we are here to tell you that he’s one of the most easygoing yet intellectual designers we know.

Best of Paris Fashion Week Street Style

As Paris Fashion Week comes to a close, we’re reflecting on our favorite street-style looks and getting better acquainted with the ladies who wore them—by creeping around on their Insta accounts. (You’re like a friend from afar if you follow!) Because not everyone can accessorize with an umbrella, puddle jump in stilettos and layer three shirts, we love the women who try and succeed. Bien fait!

Our Designer VPs on Their Favorite Paris Fashion Week Moments

Tricia Smith and Jennifer Wheeler enter the stylish back bar at Daroco looking like they just came off the beach in Saint-Tropez. Well, except that they’re in ankle boots and turtlenecks, trench coats and long sleeves.

The attitude, though—it’s pure relaxed satisfaction. Contented fulfillment. It’s a mood that isn’t necessarily native to this part of Paris Fashion Week. We’re on the tail end of the week and at this stage of the game, buyers and editors tend to be exhausted, a little cranky, and sort of overwhelmed by all the schedule-packed days they’ve just made it through.

But this time has been different. “It’s just been such a consistently good season,” says Tricia, our executive vice president of women’s and designer apparel. And even more than that, she tells me that the entire industry seems to have banded together in a united front. There’s a feeling of camaraderie in the shows and in the streets.

“It’s like everyone really wants to hold each other up,” agrees Jennifer, vice president of women’s designer apparel. From more white bandanas to all kinds of great color, this is how it went down and these are the moments that mattered most.
