From February 27th through March 7th, fashion’s elite flocked to the city of lights to see the biggest names roll out their FW’17 collections at Paris Fashion Week. At recent fashion weeks in New York, London and Milan, designers put politics on the runway but in France, the main focus was on fashion, fashion, and more fashion. Perhaps the political statements were present but just a little too subtle. Regardless, we’ll always have Paris…and very, very pretty clothes. Here’s The Untitled Magazine’s picks for the top collections of the week.

Alexander McQueen
