Paul & Joe is beach ready

Paul & Joe's models were beach ready at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (06Oct15).

The brand showed off its Spring/Summer 16 collection in the French capital city and well and truly had the front row pining for the warmer months.

Among the pieces on offer was a frilly bathing suit in pale purple and orange with a white palm-leaf print. Mixing glamour with practicality, designer Sophie Albou paired the beachy offering with silver sneakers and oversized sunglasses.

For fans of the two-piece, there was a red bikini with a little frill on the top and the same white palm-leaf print. The briefs boasted bows on either side, and a metallic bag and ankle boots finished the look.

The print also appeared on a loose red kaftan that would look just as great at the bar as on the beach.

For city breaks, Sophie offered a pair of loose, pale blue jeans, cut off at the ankles and finished with floral embellishments. Tucked into them was a floaty pale pink shirt, which yet again featured the beloved leaf print.

A night-time look came in the form of a silver dress with flower stitching, another in the way of metallic trousers and a ruffled white shirt.

Valentino also showed on Tuesday, offering a dramatic collection that probably won't be joining Paul & Joe on the beach.

There was a patterned high-neck blouse, which was paired with a maxi skirt in a clashing print. The colours were largely dark and maybe more associated with autumn/winter: black, reds and deep purples ruled the runway.

Wednesday (07Oct15) marks the final day of Paris Fashion Week. Louis Vuitton will kick things off, with Miu Miu also showing. Moon Young Hee closes proceedings.
