On the last day of Paris Fashion Week, the fashion set descended upon the Grand Palais in anticipation of Virginie Viard’s first spring ready-to-wear show after Karl Lagerfeld. On a set of reconstructed Parisian rooftops, models sashayed in flirty tiered ruffle dresses, bubble skirts, oversized cardigans, metallic shorts and cityscape jumpsuits in a decidedly youthful and highly wearable collection.

Emerging Thai jewellery brand Pacharee—which is less than a year old— got us excited for its new pearl and fine jewellery offering. Paired with hammered gold, each piece is inspired by the land and sea in an abstract depiction of “uncovered treasures.”

Flower buttons on ruffle hemmed dresses, cosy cardigans and fluffy fur vests–Miu Miu also sent out a girly lineup for spring, complete with babydoll shift dresses, plenty of peplum and floral crochet.

We then took a closer look at Alexander McQueen’s breathtaking collection, in which the use of reclaimed fabrics was a focus. Drawing inspiration from traditional Irish clothing, there were lots of lace pirate sleeves and sharp-shouldered tailoring. The flora depicted on print gowns and the heels of shoes were of nearly extinct species to draw attention to nature’s crisis.

Princess sleeves, sequinned vests and dresses with retro-futuristic prints, in a departure from his heavy fall collection, Nicholas Ghesquière went light and breezy, even in his use of colours like purples, yellows and greens. Soft bowler hats, lace in the pattern of peacock feathers and tulip skirts completed his sartorial garden.
