the last batch

Yes, it's sad, but we've finally come to the last batch of our Spring/Summer 2013 Paris Fashion Week street-style photos. And it's a great group of photos because, in a way, it summarises the fashions we saw on the streets while we were there. In general, there has been a return to more low-key style. Not to say that it's boring or minimalist; just that the maximalist era of "arm parties" and Anna Dello Russo'sextravagant style seems to be waning. Accessories generally being kept to a minimumand clashing prints are less ubiquitous. Black, white, clean classic prints and textures are all now coming to the forefront of fashion. We saw lots of simple stripes, classic lace, lovely leather and subdued florals, coupled with many a monotone outfit. We can't wait to embrace this new turn in street-style.


Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam shows off her new raven hair.


Giovanna Battaglia mixes baroque sunnies with a green lace dress and hot-pink accessories.


Pace Wu, bold in red leather.


Love the mix of the cameo jacket with the turquoise pin and rosary beads.


A turban done right.


Is there anythign sexier than a sheer black top, red leather pants and a studded leopard clutch? Don't think so.


Tutus reinterpreted for everyday wear. Love it.


Floral pijama suits in the garden.


Sticking to modern classics and mixing prints is Caroline Issa's forte.


How to wear a jumpsuit.


Mixing a rock-n-roll tee with a printed, mixed-textured jacket looks fresh and interesting, without being over-the-top.


Who new leather dungarees could be so chic? Anya makes it work.


Taylor-Tomasi Hill, always ahead of the times. Strapless necklines were huge a huge trend on the SS13 runways, and here she is rocking one in the FW12 season.


All-out lace, interpreted in a modern way in a collared shirt and pants.
