McCartney is known for an understated approach and her Spring/Summer 2014 collection unveiled in the ornate setting of the Opera Garnier for Paris Fashion Week did not waver from familiar terrain. Picture: Benoit Tessier/Reuters
Whether light-as-air low-slung trousers, slip dresses that floated or half-transparent skirts, the clothes in neutral shades as well as navy, rust and black were cut away from the body, imparting fluidity and fun. Picture: Benoit Tessier/Reuters
French designer Hedi Slimane had the fashion world on the edge of its seat for his latest Saint Laurent show, hard on the heels of recent collections considered a touch too grungy by some. Picture: Jacques Brinon/AP
Slimane’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection had a 1980s rock vibe to it with trouser suits teamed with narrow ties, sheer blouses and dinner jackets. Picture: Charles Platiau/Reuters
Although the jury is still out on the designer’s third ready-to-wear collection for the illustrious French fashion house, the skinny tailoring that made him a fashion superstar was clearly still on the runway. Picture: Charles Platiau/Reuters
