Raw instincts made a deadly appearance, imperfections were applauded, and sensuality had a serious moment. Paris Fashion Week was an ode to the bad girls of fashion

The Fall Winter hustle eventually boils down to what happens in the fashion capital of the world. And, unlike the 70s throwback or the force of abstraction that we saw in New York, London and Milan, Paris had a different story to tell. Firstly, we can’t miss the cameo by Derek Zoolander and Hansel. With that, fashion met its the bold and brazen side. From the trends perspective, metallics, minis and even skimpier LBDs are exactly what you will need when breaking bad.

Verve handpicks some of the best looks straight off Paris Fashion Week Fall Winter 2015.


Deviating from his usual choice of bar-shaped classics, Raf Simons decided to showcase hidden animal instincts via his collection for Dior.
Cutting edge: Simons’ reinterpretation of animal print bordered on psychedelic, and the thigh-high vinyl boots are a definite choice for any winter wardrobe.
We love: how the elegance of Dior met the rawness of animal skin.

Karl Lagerfeld’s inspiration can be traced to the splendor of Parisian brasseries. Also, the classic Chanel tweed was given adequate importance in this grand scheme of things.
Cutting edge: The bourgeoise effect was brought about by the ringard, which is a toe-capped mid-heel shoe.
We love: the elaborate-ness that comes with every Chanel collection.

Louis Vuitton

Technology guided Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection for LV. From the voluminous furry coats that opened the show to the metallic pant suits, Ghesquière clearly out did himself.
Cutting edge: The glass fibre trunks are a lust-worthy addition to the brand’s arsenal.
We love: how technology drove Ghesquière’s idea of vanity.


Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski’s debut collection for Hermès stuck to the equestrian motifs the brand so strongly advocates.
Cutting edge: Leather was given a new definition through dungarees and trapeze coats that were sharply paired with white shirts.
We love: the iconic combination of skin, saddle and scarf.
