As the Autumn/Winter 2024 catwalk season comes to a close, discover the top three need-to-know trends from Paris Fashion Week that will last beyond the runway highlighted by WGSN experts.

Cocooning Coats

At Paris Fashion Week, designers put an emphasis on texture that’s irresistibly tactile. Especially tantalising are this season’s shaggy coats. Made from sleek faux fur or even looped yarn, these hyper-haptic coats look like a cocoon of cosiness, elevated with a suitably glamorous edge.

Fluid Draping

Always synonymous with elegance, #Paris leaned into glamorous minimalism. Fluid silhouettes practically glided down the catwalks in seductive sheers, and liquid-smooth drapes brought an irresistible sense of effortlessness to occasion dressing.

Elevated Pastels

These new occasion dress codes explored a fresh focus on pastels. Dusted sugary shades, once reserved for girlish attire, had a look of grown-up sophistication on sleek leather suits and distressed dresses.
