PARIS Fash­ion Week ended Wed­nes­day. Let’s take a look at five strik­ing trends from some of the Au­tumn/ Win­ter wom­enswear col­lec­tions.

SEE- thro ugh is usu­ally syn­ony­mous w with sexy... un­til it is ap­plied t to a pair of dun­ga­rees. New take es on work­wear are ev­erywh here on the very prac­ti­cal and wear­able Paris cat­walk, wit th Wanda Ny­lon turn­ing out n nifty see- through denim- type j ack­ets. Her dun­ga­rees thro ough will never hold a can­dle to o blue- jean real things worn by Beatrice Dalle in

An­thony Vac­carello WITH fash­ion in some­thing of a more- is- bet­ter spiral, Cour­reges brought it sharply back to the ba­sics of its 1960s min­i­mal­ist roots. As well as its head­line- grab­bing self- heat­ing coats, it went big on miniskirts, which the brand claims to have co- in­vented – a trend picked up by An­thony Vac­carello, among oth­ers. – AFP Re­laxnews

Mi­nis and min­i­mal­ism

THE front- row guests at Dries Van Noten's sump­tu­ous show were ready to give their ( re­done) front teeth for any­thing from what

Vogue called this “spine- chill­ingly el­e­gant” col­lec­tion of leop­ard- spot suits, gold lame coats and poi­son- green furs. The stand­out show so far drew on 1930s aris­to­cratic dandies and the March­esa Luisa Casati in par­tic­u­lar, who never left home with­out her pearls or a pet chee­tah or two.

PARIS has rounded up the wag­ons and gone West for in­spi­ra­tion. Chloe riffed off its clas­sic hippy- dippy look with cow­boy- gau­cho capes and floaty frilly dresses that sa­loon girls could only dream of, while the ( East) In­dian de­signer Man­ish Arora cre­ated a line of su­per- colour­ful punky tribal squaws that would have given even Vivi­enne West­wood the vapours for his “Hell's Belles” show. And Anne Sofie Mad­sen set off too into the lost Na­tive Amer­i­can heart­lands in search of Elvis Pres­ley's Chero­kee roots.

Biker chic WHILE Paris has only ten­ta­tively fol­lowed Mi­lan's lead on thigh- high boots, it has gone hell- bent for leather on a re­booted biker look, with Paco Ra­banne, An­thony Vac­carello, Carven Ready and Wanda Ny­lon all look­ing to "Easy Rider" in the rear- view mir­ror. Chloe even ded­i­cated its col­lec­tion to the 1970s mo­tor­cy­cle ad­ven­turer Anne- France Dau­theville.
