That’s a wrap for fashion month now that Paris Fashion Week has come to a close — and what a week it has been! To get us in the mood, Maria Grazia Chiuri kicked us off with a modern dance performance at Christian Dior and to close us out, Karl Lagerfeld took us sur la plage with a makeshift beach complete with azure blue skies and lapping waves right in the middle of the Grand Palais for Chanel.

Throughout the week, our forums have witnessed Alessandro Michele take over the French capital for Gucci while Jane Birkin serenaded front row attendees. We’ve also seen Rei Kawakubo go back to basics with Comme des Garcons, Demna Gvasalia paying a respectful tribute to Cristóbal Balenciaga and watched in amazement as models walked on water at Saint Laurent before a twinkling Eiffel Tower at dusk. Isabel Marant went OTT with the 80s inspo and Hedi Slimane released a predictable debut collection for Celine.

Here are theFashionSpot’s hits and misses of Paris Fashion Week’s Spring 2019 season, according to our unfiltered and no-holds-barred forum members. (Because who needs the likes of Suzy Menkes, Tim Blanks and Cathy Horyn, right?) This season has been a roller coaster and we don’t want to get off. Until next season…
