Each season, in addition to our in-depth catwalk reviews at WGSN, we spotlight the early trends that are coming through.

Right now Paris Fashion Week S/S17 is coming to a close and key themes are emerging from the shows.

Spotted at Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Dries Van Noten and Barbara Bui; it was all about Lacquered Leather.

Paris collections display a tough, modern femininity, with patent leather expressing a transseasonal approach. Liquid gloss PU coatings work a directional mood into coats, jackets, tailoring and separates, highlighting the urban subversive message with the sumptuous nocturnal glaze of black and navy tones.
