The first day of Paris fashion week drew to a close with extraordinary runway shows, including presentations from Cédric Charlier, Anthony Vaccarello and Christophe Lemaire. We take a look at these collections to identify some of the influences and trends emerging from the Fall-Winter 2014-2015 season.

Cédric Charlier
The young designer's collection emphasized discretion and modesty, with a series of rather long pieces, never exposing the leg above the knee. There were a number of ample and fluid pieces, including pants worn with more fitted jackets. Prints and embroidered motifs resembling reptilian scales were among the most original details in the show.

Anthony Vaccarello
In spite of a few oversized, rather modest looks, the majority of the designer's Fall-Winter 2014 collection was provocative and ultra-sexy, in keeping with Vaccarello's style. The collection emphasized the feminine form through red and black dresses and skirts that were either skin tight or very short. Fitted pants were also present. Unsurprisingly, leather was among the star materials, making an appearance in jackets and coats.

Christophe Lemaire
Sophistication was the word at the French designer's show, which exhibited a collection of generously sized looks that could be almost qualified as cozy. Neutral colors prevailed, with outfits in black, army green and midnight blue accessorized by beige and off-white shoes. There were also a number of monochromatic looks combining off-white, beige and cream clothes with dark shoes.
