That’s a wrap. Paris Fashion Week rounded out Fashion Month Spring 2022 after what has been a celebration of what the industry’s finest have to offer.

It was a 60s revival at Christian Dior with models parading Maria Grazia Chiuri’s reinterpretation of Marc Bohan designs. Before the Eiffel Tower, Saint Laurent served up big shoulders, asymmetric cuts and sky-high stilettos. Olivier Rousteing celebrated 10 years at Balmain with help from Naomi Campbell and Carla Bruni.

The fashion pack soon flocked to the banks of the Seine for Gabriela Hearst’s first physical show since taking over the helm of Chloe. Meanwhile at Loewe, Jonathan Anderson delivered his sexiest and most abstract collection to date. Demna Gvasalia surprised everyone with Balenciaga’s latest offering by collaborating with The Simpsons, which even included a cameo from Anna Wintour.

Virginie Viard revived the spirit of the 90s at Chanel insisting models show joy as they sashayed down the catwalk. Miuccia Prada marked the return of the low-rise miniskirt at Miu Miu. Not even a climate protester was enough to distract from the drama of Louis Vuitton‘s latest collection. Closing out the week in style, 44 designers paid tribute to Alber Elbaz with a truly touching AZ Factory show.
