Fuss-free styling around the fashion capitals, most notably at Paris, kept it simple. Stella McCartney and Loewe embraced the streamlined, clean-cut silhouettes with a lack of surface detail. Celine used traditionally tough fabrics such as leather and worked them into delicate tops. Neutral palettes of cream, caramel and white emphasised the back-to-basics approach. Form-fitting dresses and separates were free from pockets and structure.
