A great suit sighting on the catwalk is a given each season and this time around it was all about the three-piece. Who knew that simply throwing on a vest under your blazer could have so much impact? Designers interpreted the trend in keeping with their own aesthetics, from Hedi Silmane’s little back vest at Celine to Riccardo Tischi’s classic, buttoned up version at Burberry. At Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, the typically masculine silhouette was redefined into a wildly fun and feminine style. The patron saint of the look? The great Diane Keaton in Annie Hall.

The 90’s seem to resonate with fashion’s current crop of designers, and this season more than ever. Some of the biggest shows saw a return of that decade’s signature “naked” dress, from minimalist classics at Kwaidan Editions and Ann Demeulemeester to an exaggerated, art deco version at Saint Laurent. The hero piece of the season was perhaps most impactful on the Gucci runway, where the typically maximalist label surprised everyone with their interpretation of the simple slip dress. Skin, apparently, is always in.

While last season may have been all about the shabby chicness of the seventies, this year the collections took us back a decade to highlight the varied, eclectic chic of the sixties. With frocks featuring oversized florals and psychedelic colors, like these from Paco Rabanne and Valentino, the Flower Power era is back in bloom. Marc Jacobs and Givenchy also paid homage to the culturally rich era with bohemian fabrics and folkloric details.
