In Paris, fashion month’s final stop, the collections have blown our breath away. The looks were non-traditional, and really pushed the boundaries of what clothing, colour, textiles and patterns can achieve. Rick Owens sent his models down the stairs in clouds covering their faces, adding to the drama of the performance and Comme des Garcons continued to display art rather than classic outfits, with a collection that looked like beautiful armour.

NY Times photographer Bill Cunningham said it best when he said Paris Fashion Week is where you go to “educate the eye” and remind yourself of the possibility of fashion.

Here is our pick of the most daring looks spotted this AW16 season.
