Kenzo started the day with an appropriately fresh collection for the season. Fluorescent animal prints, tropical florals and cool white linens were lined up side by side to give us an insight into the hotter season.
Turquoise and pink were paired against forest green and yellow to cover the entire summer palette, whilst natural straw shades were layered with white for a more subdued, holiday perfect tone. Bamboo framed sunglasses were the highlight of the accessories selection, marginally creeping in front of a pair of yellow and white slouched knee high boots. The supple leather and delicate colour scheme made our fashion radars go into overdrive.
There are two types of women in the world – Céline women and the rest. This season Phoebe Philo really tapped into the side of fashion that the Céline girl would love. Simple, clean long lined pieces with just a hint of femininity and relaxed styles that would fit into either our day or evening wardrobe.
The highlight of the show had to be the ankle length maxi dress with mesh inserts and a frayed hem. The easy feel of the dress contrasted against the raw sexuality in the transparent inserts. This was a collection that even a non-Céline girl could enjoy.
Hermès truly is the highlight of Paris Fashion Week. All things classical and quintessentially Parisian is encapsulated in the Hermès collection. This season we travelled the world with the label, moving through European chic and into the grace of the Orient.

Silk kimonos with dragon and floral prints enamoured the fashion editors on the front row and monochrome pointed loafers clashed with the feminine allure of the collection. From head to toe with was a typically polished collection that will be seen on every fashion forward woman next season.
Next up was the John Galliano show. Creative director Bill Gaytten created a more subtle but incredibly fabulous collection for the SS13 season. Wide brimmed hats with a distinct thirties edge to them could be seen on almost every model, but the folded and draped clothing was incredibly modern. Clean blues and whites were fresh and inventive, proving that the classical and dramatic Galliano is indeed not a one trick pony.
Givenchy ended the day with a collection that, in terms of shape and form, echoed that of Gucci earlier this month. Simple dresses with wide frills across the hemlines were both elegant and modern, and the odd piece of translucent fabric broke up the otherwise heavier materials.

Slicked hair, defined cats eyes and bold, gold make up made for a brilliant collection that told us a story of French design, but with a chic Italian twist. Givenchy is sure to sell this line with the greatest of ease.
On day seven the team GB designer and wonder-woman Stella McCartney will be showcasing her wares. Following her lead will be Hedi Slimane at the newly branded Saint Laurent fashion house. With such radical changes happening in the fashion world, we can't wait to see what the designers have drawn inspiration from.
