“What a load of bollocks,” Emily Charlton once said in the Devil Wears Prada, going on about how unfair it was that her archnemesis Andy Sachs was attending Paris Fashion Week in her place. Sure, her choice of words were rather harsh, but her feelings were completely valid. The City of Lights is, after all, the Super Bowl of fashion and no one wants to miss it. Of course, that’s not to say the other spots on the calendar aren’t bursting with top-tier style — New York is playful; London is quirky, Milan is sexy — but the PFW Spring/Summer 2024 street style this season is truly in a league of its own.
So far this week, bright, mood-lifting colors seem to be all the rage, with hues like punchy purple and sunny yellow leading the pack. (Below, you’ll find a few surefire ways to pull off the intense shades.) But for those partial to neutrals, take notes from influencer Vanessa Hong, who leaned into a subdued monochromatic look.
Ahead, follow along with photographer Darrel Hunter, who is at the scene to capture all the impeccable street style at PFW. We’ll update this post with more images until the shows wrap up on Oct. 3, so, as always, come back for more fall outfit inspiration.
