Top 3: Paris Fashion Week A/W 12

With Paris Fashion Week wrapping up today, it seemed fitting to piece together my top 3 from the week. I have spent the evening trawling through reviews, write-ups and, naturally,'s gallery to conclude my favourite outfits. PFW was really strong this season, but I have whittled it down to three.
1. Chloé - Clare Waight Keller produced a beautiful, minimalist and easy-to-wear collection, mixing the 'casual vibe of English sportswear with the dressier sensibility of the French'. I would love to lift the whole collection and park it in my wardrobe. Parfait!
2. Alexander McQueen - Three cheers to Sarah Burton, she has created yet another mesmorising and unconventionally beautiful show. I love the idea that the designs evolve in shape as the show goes on, from 'pods' to Japanese cherry blossom, and finally pom-poms. The concept alone would make the top three on it's own merit.
3. Valentino - Folk costumes were a great inspiration for this collection. Valentino mixed ethereal and whimsical designs with a multitude of strong textures, including leather, lace, embroidery and velvet. My personal favourite was the multi-coloured crystal carpet patterned designs (above).
