Paris Fashion Week - Best of the rest

It was sheer class from Stella McCartney as her blend of post-Olympic sportiness and feminine tailoring was brought to life by see-through panels and poppy blues and oranges.

But tracksuits, no matter how swanky, were not going to suffice for Miuccia Prada at Miu Miu, as decadent furs, long-line PVC jackets and duchess silk-lined dark denim signalled a bold statement in luxury. Where Miu Miu covered up, Balenciaga got it all out as Nicolas Ghesquière ruffled up the house’s signature with leggy and at times peplumed skirts that were tempered by minimal tailoring and suggestive tops. Dries Van Noten’s show on the other hand was a grungy but upmarket delve into a world that danced between masculinity and femininity: manly checks in organza and floral camouflage in lace were the most obvious ways Van Noten got his theme across.
