In Picture: Paris Fashion Week
Manish Arora's latest ready-to-wear show featured garish metallic prints, garments superimposed with street art designs and rich cobalt furs, yet by the designer's own admission it was "subdued" compared to his previous efforts.
Guests at the show choked on spray can fumes as hooded figures graffitied the slogan "Life is Beautiful" behind posing models.
There were attempts, however, to soften some looks with more wearable cropped black trousers and pencil skirts. Two of Paris Fashion Week's tentpole shows, Dior and Lanvin, will take place in the French capital today.
