Paris: Style director Kim Jones brought the business suit outdoors for F/W 14, pairing tailored ensembles with luxe versions of mountain sports garb such as chunky angora sweaters, curly lamb parkas and streamlined hiking boots. Pants and jackets in a silky nylon-like fabric introduced an activewear influence, which also appeared in the form of perforated leather hoodies and mirrored wraparound sunglasses. —Anna Jane Davis
