PARIS FASHION WEEK: CUT, DRAPE & EXOTIC TEXTURES

It's Paris' turn to show their Fall Pret-A-Porter collections.  My favorite so far is Lanvin's beautiful collection.  See the link below:

The shapes were feminine, with exquisite use of drape and geometry.  But the knockouts were the exotic feathers or fur accents in new places, but it was never outre.  It's the kind of collection you would actually see ladies in fashion capitals wear.  The other Paris collections were entertaining but perhaps too theatrical for real life, unless you were in theater.

Here's a close-up look at structure and shape from a Swiss label, Akris:


The folds on the sleeves was similar to some of Lanvin's techniques on his dresses.  You can see it close-up on the right.
Which Paris collections did you find inspiring for your own individual style?
