It's been an irregular month of shows and Paris (which closes today) was the perfect example. There have been several high-profile events including Chanel and Alexander McQueen, but not many of the collections as a whole grabbed our attention. So, to bid farewell to the city, we thought we'd start by featuring this collection from Mira Mikati which saw the tropics reinterpreted in a fun and lighthearted way. We loved the cut-out treatment of the toucans on skirts and trousers and, of course, the star pattern. The clothes were playful but not juvenile and featured embroidered chimpanzees and inspirational quotes. The result was an easy, comfortable and relaxed but still stylish collection.
