Elegance and softness were the defining notes at the Spring 2019 shows in Paris. At Miu Miu, models traipsed down a grand curving staircase and onto the catwalk in slouchy sequined tanks and silk slips adorned with rosettes. Sarah Burton’s collection for Alexander McQueen, inspired in part by the shape of a Victorian wedding dress, was heavy on mega-ruffles and tiny waists belted in black leather. And, on the final morning of the Paris shows, Chanel installed a beach in the Grand Palais, where models frolicked in straw hats and silk chiffon dresses in the sand and sea grasses.
