It's au revoir to S/S '17 - and what a journey it's been! The month of fashion ended on a high note with two collections from designers who never fail to reinvent: Miuccia Prada and Nicolas Ghesquière.

Paris Fashion Week: Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu farewell S/S '17

After taking us on a space age journey for A/W '16 and to Rio for Cruise '17 Nicolas Ghesquière took Louis Vuitton right back to its roots for the S/S '17 show (watch it live here). The Place Vendôme space will be the future Maison Louis Vuitton - a place that once held the first ever Louis Vuitton store in 1854.

This tension between and old and new was reflected in the collection - the series of asymmetrical-cut dresses with daring flashes of skin, the slashed-and-refashioned suits and the sexy mesh and metallic gowns that closed the show. Tough, sexy and brazen; there was a sense of '80s glamour and urban sophisticate to the entire collection, which we’re sure will resonate with the LV customer.

Over at Miu Miu, Miuccia Prada closed the Paris Fashion Week schedule with a series of joyously kitsch '60s bathing suits (complete with impossibly cute swimming caps), printed coats and shell and starfish-decorated slides and flatforms.

This was a colour palette that recalled the fearless experimentation with clashing hues that you'd associate with the'50s, '60s and even '70s. Large cheerful florals, pastels and geometric prints were abundant - and compared to the quirky, yet buttoned up Miu Miu girl of S/S '16 - the collection was an invigorating breath of fresh spring air.
