Paris: Cacharel’s youthful, flirtatious style gained distinction through a clean monochrome palette and textural photo prints this season, while sticking to wearable silhouettes and basic separates. Head-to-toe baby blue seemed almost edgy, especially for a simple cashmere jumpsuit or a cropped bomber jacket with tonal relaxed trousers, while a cherry red leather dress became demure paired with matching hosiery. In addition to a standout use of color, Cacharel’s knits were impressive for their balance of a clingy body-conscious fit and delicate pointelle textures—pleated turtleneck dresses were particularly appealing. Photo prints featured crystals and feathers repeated until they became a creative abstraction, while leather aviator caps and other references to flight were best ignored.—Nina Stotler
