The iconic French fashion house’s guests were welcomed by futuristic models adorning colourful make-up created by Pat McGrath – however the aesthetic of the show changed dramatically from the moment the first model came into sight. Gone were the heavily backcombed hairstyles and rainbow faces; instead bare, natural skin glided down the spiral stairway and took to the runway. Soft feminine flowing maxi skirts and folk-inspired prints were mixed with strong leather dresses and contemporary printed co-ords – a fashionable vision of the future in the spaceship-esque location.
