Spring 2014 Couture Fashion Week is upon us, and just as we expected, we were greeted with a whirlwind of one-of-a-kind creations. We did not expect to witness, however, the prevalence of casual shoewear paired (deliberately, we might add) with bespoke gowns, coordinating couture fanny packs and knee pads at Chanel, the blur of out-there hair at Schiaparelli, and so much more.

That’s why we dissected the Parisian shows, pinpointing the major show-stopping moments, and rounded them all up in one place. From the Grace Jones-slash-Lady Gaga-inspired hooded gowns that sashayed down the Atelier Versace catwalk to Marco Zanini’s Schiaparelli couture debut (the first in decades), consider this your go-to guide of all things haute, delivered to you straight from the City of Lights.
