Go on a glitchy trip through the best of Paris fashion

Blade Runner, the occult and pixellated PCs – as Fashion Week draws to a close, we deconstruct the most unexpected references from the standout city

You probably spotted Rei’s red-haired witches – but did you see hints of the occult in Saint Laurent?

Putting together the most exciting references of Paris SS16 into these GIFs, he pulls out the connections between Chanel’s vacation dreams and Céline’s escape from the city, Maison Margiela’s plastic-wrapped androgynous models and Louis Vuitton’s portrait of a digital future.
