BACK TO THE FUTURE
Paris: Alber Elbaz’s latest collection took an unexpected detour to the ‘80s, showing that skinny ties, wild prints and bright magentas still matter in 2014. Chalk stripe suits stood out, particularly with forward-looking oversized jackets, while Elbaz explored a variety of trouser shapes that included wide, sagging looks with multiple breaks as well as skinny, sharply tailored versions that stood crisply atop basketball shoes.  —Andrew Luecke
