Paris Fashion Week – the jewel in the crown of the marathon that is fashion month – demands that show-goers bring their A-game. Get mistaken for a French fashion editor by opting for classic pieces with a twist: black, navy and beige are your outfit foundations, but you’ll want to give them a little edge. Tapping into one of this season’s biggest trends, Joseph’s zebra-print trench coat strikes the perfect balance. Layer it over Isabel Marant’s asymmetric skirt, adding playful accessories by Chloé, Saint Laurent and LouLou de la Falaise – ideal for a day in the Tuileries Garden followed by dinner and drinks at The Ritz. If discovering new designers and emerging artists is more your scene, finish with a color-pop turtleneck and Balenciaga’s cult denim for an electrifying 24 hours on the Left Bank.
