From sequinned party pants and shoulder-skimming crystal earrings to the label’s signature chainmail dresses, Paco Rabanne’s autumn/winter collection served up so much modern glamour. I can’t land on a favourite look because I want to wear it all!
On a very different note, I’m drawn to the oversized proportions of this Balenciaga look—it just reads so effortlessly cool. The B-branded gold earrings are the perfect finishing touch.

Miu Miu (above) and Valentino (below)
I loved the Miu Miu and Valentino shows — I loved the unexpected textures and the bold silhouettes in the Valentino show, especially.
LUCY WOOD, Junior Fashion Editor:
This show brought me so much joy! I loved the clashing colors, prints and textures. A nice reminder that more, really is more.
A classic Chanel show that honoured Karl Lagerfeld and his legacy. In particular I loved look one, a monochrome tweed oversized suit and coat with layered jewels. Perfect.
LULU CUSTANCE, Market Editor and Fashion Office Manager:
Loewe have been presenting stronger collections season on season. I love the tonal colour palette, mix of textures and most of all the whimsical hats all designed with a very detail orientated sense of craftmanship. One of my favourites was the checked panel coat with oversized leather cuffs and collar.
I also really enjoyed seeing Balenciaga’s boxy silhouettes continue through to AW19. The collection’s slightly quirky interpretation of laid back cool is a much-appreciated and refined new direction for streetwear.
FRANCESCA WALLACE, Senior Digital Fashion Editor:
After last year’s, er, situation, I never thought I could love Celine again, but Hedi proved us all wrong with this collection — and I’m in love. The seriousness, the vintage-ness, the sophisicatedness. I love it all and all I want to do is wear this outfit while sipping on a coffee in Paris right now.
