PARIS — While the rest of the work-a-day world brushed out the weekend cobwebs on a Monday morning, those on the now almost month-long ready-to-wear circuit simply got on with the first of a final three days of the season at the Sacai Autumn / Winter 2016 runway show at Palais de Chaillot. Walking for celebrated designer Chitose Abe were 10 girls from across the Next network including Yana Van Ginneken, Julie Hoomans, Odette Pavlova, Lineisy Montero, Binx, Lorena Maraschi, Sandra Schmidt, Amalie Moosgaard, Nirvana Naves, and Caroline Reagan. Shadowy eyes, top knots, and plenty of strapping, showed this collection meant business and on a Monday morning no less.
