Initial reaction:

A neatness unraveled.

References:

Knotted belts referenced karate uniforms or dressing gowns, with a distinct Japanese undertone. Deconstructivism reigned in partially detached panels and raw hems.

Stand out looks:

A sky blue and white dress, which appeared to be built from vast folds of fabric, loosely tacked and tied with a belt.

Unexpected details:

Peeps of dotted orange after a pure white opening, and the wispy threads hanging from sleeves, collars and skirt hems.

Colour impressions:

The brightest vermillion, sky blue and mint green, against a more sombre palette of white, taupe and midnight blue.

Viral moment:

The cropped green sweater and low-slung sky blue trousers combo that popped up between tunics. Pleasantly unexpected.

Accessories:

Black flip flops with refined trouser suits and tunics – a sight in the office next season?

Left us wanting:

To steal our little brother’s karate belt and tie it over everything.

Beauty:

Matte burgundy lips and darkened full eyebrows.

Most likely to:

Cement Ter et Bantine’s place at PFW: this was their first show in Paris since moving from Milan.
