Paris fashion week to me has a certain unique edge to it that gives the glamorous silhouettes a bit of funk. From tinsel skirts at Balenciaga worn with a structured top half to Chambray denim worn with foiled gold at Balmain, The designers featured at Paris always know how to mix the young with the old.
