Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten, Balmain, Rick Owens, and 3.1 Phillip Lim at Paris Fashion Week Fall 2014, Day 2

The second day of Paris Fashion Week was a heavy-hitter with shows from plenty of bold-faced names, and parties for the Wooyoungmi boutique opening and Roland Mouret/Robert Clergerie Homme kept the fashion pack up till the wee hours.

If it wasn't the horse-head prints or the cowboy scarves, the faded denim (again seen head-to-toe) might have lead you to guess that Phillip Lim's theme for Fall 2014 is "Sprit of the West." Lim's urban cowboys were home on the range in their skinny, leather trousers worn with an oversized, mustard sweater or a lambskin shirt jacket. Prairie-flower prints, oversized, blanket coats, and cow-skin accessories in a down-home palette of burnt oranges, mustard yellows, and night-sky navy blues set the tone.

Dries Van Noten
Dries Van Noten's collection—dedicated to the style tribes of rave, punk, skate, and tribal—was a monumental moment for color and pattern mixing, as only the Belgian designer can do it. Pink, tie-dyed prints married easily with patchwork silk parachute trousers in his daring opening, which transitioned effortlessly through a palette of vibrant blues, neon yellows, and elegant forest greens with pieces like fluid, silk parkas and shaggy fox-fur collars.

Louis Vuitton
Inspired by NASA maps and his trip to the Atacama dessert, creative director Kim Jones thread a worldly spirit in his collection in pieces like the oversized alpaca coats bearing Chilean- and Peruvian-inspired broad stripes, which were worn cape-like over a tailored navy suit with a long, striped scarf underneath. Sportier pieces paired with full-on hiker boots were elevated by the exquisite shearling outerwear, silk anoraks lined in fur, and the made-to-order vicuña loungewear.

This season, designer Olivier Rousteing was inspired by Africa, as seen through photographer Peter Beard's lens. In the off-runway presentation we saw wild animal prints in military green and, skinny, leather multi-pocketed trousers paired with statement jackets, like animal-print bombers and a stunningly embellished African-weave drawstring jacket.

Rick Owens
Aptly titled "Défilé," Rick Owens sent out a powerful army of young men in layers of long leather tunics and exquisite coats, austerely paired with knee-high leather boots, in addition to headgear that was presumably inspired by nun habits.
