Each of the four fashion month cities has a specific archetype: New York (opens in new tab) is the espresso martini-sipping cool girl, always keeping an ear out for the hottest afterparty; London, which hosts a slew of up-and-coming labels, is the trendsetting vanguard whose style skews more experimental; Milan is the wiser older sister with a closet of reliable and luxurious staples; and then there's Paris. The city of lights is an effective combination of each personality, simultaneously classic and contemporary, polished yet always party-ready. And the best looks from Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023, in particular, are a perfect testament to that fact.
