Paris: This season Heidi Slimane put a Parisian spin on his signature indie rock ‘n’ roll look with all black ensembles of super skinny pants and tight turtlenecks topped off by berets. Slimane favourites such as animal print came in the form of leopard print intarsia sweaters, zebra printed fur coats, and broad-shouldered monochrome leopard blazers. His nautical stripes were seen in tight t-shirts, turtlenecks, mohair sweaters, and extra long scarves. Glam and gloom collided with sequin embellished harrington jackets and blazers, mesh net sweaters, and skintight leather pants with all-over zippers or metallic silver splices. Throughout the collection bottoms and shirting remained ultra slim while coat and blazers were boxier. Slimane’s offering of well-tailored leather biker jackets will continue to be a hit. – Matt Feniger
