Paris Fashion Week has dominated Fall 2017 collections everywhere. From stunning sequined boots at Saint Laurent to the prettiest pastel furs at Miu Miu, these past Fall 17 pieces have been stamped in our minds forever. Needless to say, we are in constant awe with all of the looks from PFW, but it doesn’t stop there. This season has bombarded us with undeniably jaw-dropping moments at the runway. If you missed some of the shows, there’s no need to panic, we have collected the only moments you’ll need to know. Might we add, it was extremely difficult to narrow these down, due to the overwhelming amount of times our hearts fell to the floor while watching these shows.

One of the most memorable moments from Paris Fashion Week FW 2017 was when Vivienne Westwood walked down the runway as a model. Andreas Kronthaler’s collection for Vivienne Westwood had it all, from boys wearing dresses to girls wearing stunning plaid suits with red cowboy boots. This green (everything was recycled) collection is one to remember.

If there is a specific item we need right now from the PFW season it’s these pair of sparkly boots from Saint Laurent. Saying they are the talk of town is an understatement. Can’t finish our recap without saying we’re also in love with their leather ruffle one-shoulder velvet black dress.

It’s no surprise Chanel has made it on our list. Karl Lagerfeld always brings us out of our world through his collections and this year’s show is no exception. With an epic rocket in the middle of the show and models strutting NASA-inspired looks, Chanel (as always) left us dreaming of tweed, metallics, and sparkly boots.

A collection that never fails to amaze us is Comme des Garçons. This season designer Rei Kawakubo takes you on a trip to another universe with her out-of-this-world imagination. This outer-body inspiration deserves more than just an applause.

Making all your fur dreams come true is Miuccia Prada for Miu Miu. It’s no surprise that the collection was absolutely stunning, bringing us drool-over-worthy pastel furs to mixing puffer jackets with the prettiest furs, and of course, head pieces that will make you never want to walk around empty-headed.

Is saying “Rick Owens, Wow!” enough? Definitely maybe, but not today. We must explain to you how amazing this collection was. Starting with the headpieces, we’re talking wires on model’s heads with stretched hoodies and wrapped-around arm pieces that are making all kinds of shapes from veils to crowns. But it doesn’t stop there. To prove that fashion can keep you warm, these wrapped-around puffers and layers make sure you never go cold.

 Something you can always expect from John Galliano is his Western vibes. At this Maison Margiela collection you are able to see an artful collection that transports you to the West and the most stunning peacock-like makeup.

If we had to choose one color to be our hue for this season it would have to be none other than bubblegum pink. This color was delightfully embraced by Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino collection. With its everlasting romanticism to the most stunning knee-length dresses, this collection is one of our favorites.

This roundup would have never been complete without the mention of Balenciaga’s tights-like boots. Bringing us the most stunning colors for our feet and legs, this ensemble, in completion is perfection and of course, the matrix-like sunglasses are back on our radar.
