Model and singer Pixie Geldof and Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquière watched from Grand Palais’ front row on Thursday (September 26) morning in Paris as Chloe put on a spring manifesto in wearable chic. Here are some highlights of the spring-summer 2020 collections unveiled the French capital.

And since arriving at the house in 2017, designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi has honoured that formidable legacy. What's next for Chloé after the iconic Paddington? The talented native of France has consistently toed a line between clothes that are both sophisticated and wearable – a mix that was on display this season.

Silhouettes featuring ribbon neckties, flattened torsos and widened shoulders were a contemporary nod to the house’s signature ’70s style. Joel Edgerton, Chloe Sevigny offer front-row stardust to ‘dark’ Miu Miu Many of the looks were a study in gentle contrasts. A fluid pleated ankle length silk gown in champagne, for example, was given a beautiful tomboy twist with the weight of black buckled leather boots. Lagerfeld’s celebrity shirt tribute View this post on Instagram Wearing my #KarlXOlivia shirt in Milan last week, and thinking of @KarlLagerfeld today. Karl’s team has unveiled a collection of white button-down shirts that were designed by Karl’s family and friends, myself included, with proceeds of select shirts going to charity. I’ll be taking you behind the design process of the shirt I created on my Stories today. Stay tuned! A post shared by Olivia Palermo (@oliviapalermo) on Sep 25, 2019 at 11:52am PDT Such was the legacy of Chanel’s late designer Karl Lagerfeld that he has been given several send-offs since his death in February, including a performance in June with Tilda Swinton and Helen Mirren. Fendi’s Roman tribute to Karl Lagerfeld brings out the stars The memorials continued this season in the form of an exhibition created by figures in fashion who loved him. View this post on Instagram #TributeToKarl by Cara Delevingne: "Karl was always fascinated by the story of my tattoos, so this tribute shirt was a way of linking our artistic expression while honoring his memory. I will always deeply cherish each moment we had together.” A post shared by KARL LAGERFELD (@karllagerfeld) on Sep 26, 2019 at 5:41am PDT View this post on Instagram #TributeToKarl by Kate Moss: “The poem on my shirt is called ‘Clutching Pens’ and it’s about laughter and happiness. As Karl was always holding a pen and laughing, I think it is the perfect tribute to him. Karl was always looking to the future.” A post shared by KARL LAGERFELD (@karllagerfeld) on Sep 26, 2019 at 9:32am PDT Mirren, soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, British models Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, American designer Tommy Hilfiger and German actress Diane Kruger were among celebrities enlisted to “reinterpret” and “redesign” what the organisers call Lagerfeld’s “most iconic design: the white shirt”. The shirts – featuring prints and graphic detailing – were displayed in the Maison Karl Lagerfeld to VIP insiders including US Vogue chief Anna Wintour, models Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber and Karlie Kloss, as well as the project’s curator, French fashion editor Carine Roitfeld.

A post shared by KARL LAGERFELD (@karllagerfeld) on Sep 22, 2019 at 2:03am PDT View this post on Instagram #TributeToKarl by Takashi Murakami: “Creating this tribute shirt was a very emotional experience for me. The artistic concept of my shirt is that you win if your work continues to be talked about for decades. If it doesn’t stand the test of time, you lose.” A post shared by KARL LAGERFELD (@karllagerfeld) on Sep 26, 2019 at 10:01am PDT Who turned up for Chanel and Fendi’s Karl Lagerfeld tribute? “It’s hard to think of Karl and not imagine him wearing his iconic white shirt,” said Karl Lagerfeld CEO, Pier Paolo Righi. “By inviting his friends and family to customise their own bespoke designs, they have been able to express their personal memories, anecdotes and experiences. This is a wonderful, creative way for us to honour his legacy.” Courrèges: on the waterfront The Saint Martin canal in central Paris was the hip urban setting for Courrèges’ spring display, which treated guests to a musical spectacle on the waterfront. Guests flanked the canal banks as a barge glided past amid a smoke and light display with a singer warbling from the deck. 7 more things we learned from Paris Fashion Week so far As the boat docked, the models disembarked onto the street runway to reveal an urban collection with a sporty, retro aesthetic with lashings of colour-blocking. More pared down and more focused than last season, spring saw designer Yolanda Zobel reinterpret the miniskirt, a style the house laid claim to inventing in the ’60s. The garment came in urban light acid green, below a colour-blocked stiff bright orange jacket, and elsewhere in a more retro style in red gingham tablecloth with a floppy tied bow. Continuing the retro-infused designs, the show saw a return to bell bottoms and a flared styles. The designs of Andre Courrèges once set the trends for stars like Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve, who admired the groundbreaking geometry, plastic miniskirts, space-age silhouettes and futuristic textiles. Rick Owens’ book and a rain-free show Rick Owens had a double reason to smile on Thursday (September 26). Firstly, because it didn’t, as forecast, rain on his parade: the outdoor fashion show he staged at the Palais de Tokyo. Fashion PR had painstakingly prepared capes for guests and sent out a flurry of informative emails concerning the potentially drizzly weather. Why will Kylie Jenner miss her Paris Fashion Week make-up launch? Secondly, because the American designer did a signing for his much-publicised new Rizzoli book on Larry LeGaspi, the US designer whose bombastic silver and black space-age looks were worn by rock bands such as Kiss. Bombastic would indeed be the word to sum up this season’s Rick Owens collection. Giant geometric headpieces and alien-like bulbous heads (achieved via scalp wigs) defined the typically eccentric, fashion-forward aesthetic. What we learned from Paris Fashion Week so far Peaked shoulders and a sculpted form elongated the silhouette to evoke bony humanoids and further the idea that this was a show that harked from a galaxy far, far away. Big stomping boots, an Owens signature, came colour-blocked against the clothes to fuse the space age with glam rock. As ever, there were some highly creative moments from the fashion master, such as abstract swathes of fabric inserted at the waist that seemed to be suspended in gravity. Manish Arora’s LGBTQ+-inspired show Manish Arora was applauded on Thursday for bringing the conversation about the global LGBTQ+ community to the heart of Paris Fashion Week in a collection entitled: “Love is Love.” The exuberant New Delhi-based designer worked his signature colour-rich psychedelia on performers in a show of diverse gender-bending styles that were displayed on the theatre stage. Armani channels natural vibes with spring/summer show A male singer in a pink perforated silk column dress and a feather eye mask serenaded guests. Then, a long-haired model in a bejewelled yellow armour-like vest bent over backward acrobatically. The model wore a heart-shaped handbag in yellow alongside eye-popping multicolour platform shoes. Evoking Arora’s native India, an A-line skirt cut on the bias had an exotic feel, with banding and myriad decorative detailing. Did Gucci make light of mental illness on the runway? While this collection didn’t have the high-fashion feel of a typical ready-to-wear show, it was a highly entertaining spectacle. Prada reveals a ‘less-is-more’ aesthetic in Milan Dior boutique opens Dior successfully capitalised on the media scrutiny that Paris Fashion Week brings by opening its newest boutique on the famed Champs-Élysées avenue on Wednesday night. Champagne-sipping celebrities added star power to the launch held just a stone’s throw from the age-old house studios on 30 Avenue Montaigne. Model Karlie Kloss stunned in a checkered black and green Dior dress as she stood on the boutique’s spiral wooden staircase. Bianca Jagger cut a cool figure as she posed in shades, red Dior coat and a Lady Dior bag in red leather. Want more stories like this? Sign up here .
