Chanel's Spring/Summer 2020 show-set? A Parisian rooftop

Inspired by the French New Wave, ensembles were seemingly more youthful and liberated

Such as this classic tweed suit that's reimagined as a playsuit

Shorter lengths and fit-and-flare silhouettes were in abundance in the line

There were some pared down looks in signature French pairings

Bringing the Parisian flair out in full force

Or in the form of ruffles on a denim top

Stripes in rope prints

Logomania can also be found in the form of coats, dresses, and separates that spell out Chanel in colourful letters

Eveningwear was mostly in a shorter length featuring panels of sheer silk

Flouncy dress with bow details on the sleeves, decollétage, and waist

Puff-sleeve gowns in black and white radiate a slight casual flair that's daytime-appropriate

New bag alert: Cylinder shaped with its signature weaved chain strap and the logo in the same material

The classic Chanel flap bag now comes in a thicker leather strap

Virginie Viard

At Miu Miu, Mrs. Prada toys with the idea of fantasy vs. reality fashion

Femininity was refined...

...without losing its signature playful touches

Structured, oversized vests were adorned with mismatched buttons

Cropped cardigans - made using raw shearling - were styled off the shoulders with pleather skirt in painterly florals

And the same prints can be found on knee-length dresses with flouncy sleeves

Faux fur pieces were a step-up from the youthful and playful vibe

The juxtaposition of textures were also apparent

The new logo that was unveiled in Spring 2019

We have our eyes set on these platform wedges on top of intricately carved wood

In full bloom: Square-neck dresses with florals in the form of embellishment, prints and a brooch

Louis Vuitton closed the Spring/Summer 2020 Fashion Month with a collection filled with his take on dandyism

The '70s Biba references were apparent in the array of preppy pairings

But of course, Nicolas Ghesquière's retro-futuristic aesthetic was still largely present in the collection

There were also plenty of iris influences in the looks, from the boutonnières... the silhouettes...

...and prints of the collection

The Belle Époque (which literally means 'Beautiful Age') era was the peak of luxury living, so naturally, beadings...

...and intricate embellishment peppered all over a number of looks

Psychedelic prints were broken up with solid leather separates, such as jackets and the patch pocket

All-white get-ups were incorporated to refresh the line-up

The rectangular VHS tape bag
