Negin Mirsalehi in Paris Fashion Week

This was Owens at his best: delivering a collection that lifted the spirits and engaged the senses. Models appeared through a wall of fog (created by portable machines they carried like thuribles used by priests in catholic churches) and the air thick with the scent from Owen’s collaboration with Aesop (released later this month). The show opened with evening dresses in dusty sequins, rich velvet and recycled cashmere, asymmetric and draped from the shoulders which wrapped around the body. Tailored jackets were cut lean, some cropped worn with languid bias-cut skirts.
