Up close and personal at the Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 Paris Fashion Week show, we saw three major themes: black & white, colour overload and metallic mania. Here are some detail shots of these three major trends we spotted at the chicest of chic Parisien fashion events...


Black & white drama on blogger Peony Lim.


More dramatic black & white on a show-goer.


And even more black & white; this time with less volume and more hardware.


From black & white to just black. All black everything!


And from all black to all white.


From black & white to colourful: bright House of Holland stockings on She.com's Faye Tsui.


More brights on Susie Bubble blogger Susanna Lau.


Reinventing the red and green Christmas colours in a modern way with a fantastic new textural combination: tweed and velvet.


Metallic mania!


More metallic mania!
