While Dior's Maria Grazia Chiuri let ballet inspire her spring collection, Alessandro Michele of Gucci paid tribute to singer Dolly Parton and kitchy Mickey Mouse-themed items on the runway. For the final days of PFW, Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino sent down bold red outfits while Olivier Rousteing brought out, once again, the power in Balmain garments.
