Fashion month is officially over. Paris Fashion Week just wrapped after the industry’s elite took in all the Fall 2020 season had to offer. So now it’s time to see which collections our unfiltered fashion critics loved and loathed from the French capital.

Which designers reigned supreme?

Dries Van Noten slayed (like always). Bruno Sialelli finally delivered a divine Lanvin collection complete with an all-star cast. Anthony Vaccarello delved into the Yves Saint Laurent archives for his sexy spin on the signature codes of the iconic fashion house. Clare Waight Keller went all “French grande dame” on us, while Olivier Rousteing’s latest Balmain offering is a vast improvement from previous seasons.

Which designers missed the mark?

Sadly, the list is long and not so distinguished. Christian Dior really needs to find a replacement for Maria Grazia Chiuri. John Galliano needs to stop trying to make goat-toe shoes happen. Demna Gvasalia basically gave us Vetements on a Balenciaga budget. Meanwhile, Katie Grand is single-handedly running Miu Miu into the ground. And Chanel stumbles once again sans Karl Lagerfeld.
