Our Autumn/Winter 13 dreamboat: the tapestried Valentino dress made several appearances. Awkward...

Paris, the fashion month finale that every gaspingly tired editor awaits, despite the sleep-deprivation, still demands a wardrobe fanfare. The trends that we’ve seen feed through New York, London and Milan were distilled in Paris, as if to confirm their validity and we've been ferociously snapping our favourite looks.

We already spotted twists of grunge back in NY in the form of plaid shirts - wrapped round the waists of floral dresses or teamed with black leather - and have since seen plaid scattered EVERYWHERE: from the Celine grocery bag style weaves on clutches, slides (slide-on trainers all over the Spring/Summer14 catwalks) and clothing to punky tartan trousers and Nirvana shirts. Check with a hint of red seems to be a firm favourite.

Proper or Punky? Tartan in its various forms. [Jason Lloyd Evans & Christian Vierig/ASP]

Bonkers colours, accessories and print-clashing a la Anna Dello Russo were all still de rigeur in Paris Whilst IT-pieces of seasons past like the Valentino Rockstud, and the Kenzo sweatshirt held a steadfast place as a fashion week favourite – they're clearly here to stay so there’s still plenty of time to invest in yours.

Rising stars were the mullet hemline and Prada’s chunky Autumn/Winter 13 sandals that made appearances in all manner of colour-combos, prints and guises. Statement footwear was of course, essential but the stage has been opened to all manner of shoe and heels are certainly not essential as trainers, slides, loafers and bovver boy boots are just as hot to trot.

So have a look at our round-up of Paris fashion in the gallery above, whilst we turn our furious notes into plans for next season's wardrobes.
