Paris Fashion Week is always the culmination of four fabulous weeks of style. This year Dior kicked things off on September 27 with a collection inspired by Catherine de’ Medici. (We found it to be Maria Grazia Chiuri’s most narrative-focused, directional line to date.) Meanwhile, Saint Laurent threw its annual, decadent ode to Paris at the foot of the Eiffel Tower: a tribute to the house’s archive, with a specific focus on the big shoulders, bold accessories, and colorways of the 1980s. Louis Vuitton closed out the official season at the Louvre with Nicolas Ghesquière’s magnified vision of the house codes. And Celine, once again, bucked the traditional calendar entirely with the November debut of its spring 2023 collection. In a special video set to a soundtrack by The Libertines and filmed at Villa Keroac, Hedi Slimane’s beach house in Ramatuelle, Slimane presented his latest offering that blends 2000s era rock and roll with French Riviera-chic. But this season, major fashion houses weren’t the only designers putting on grandiose spectacles. With its restrained yet snappy runway show, Botter demonstrated that relative newcomers can be terribly chic, too. Keep up with the running list of our favorite looks from each of the maisons below.
