Paris editor Lola Saab will have a full report from the ready-to-wear shows during Paris Fashion Week later, but, for now, it’s Collette Dinnigan who has provided us with a comprehensive look at her autumn–winter 2013–14 range.
   Called The Incredible Darkness of Being, Dinnigan tells a story of a woman who lives a ‘quiet albeit stylish life’, with a collection that revels in details and intricacy. She is modest, with plainness and rightness, according to the show notes, but there’s also a ‘deep sexuality’. The colour palette features a base of olive, blues and black, with sky blue and red as highlights.
   Materials included wool, of which Dinnigan showed great mastery, leather, French lace, and sequins. There was a strong sense of shape and structure in a luxe collection of separates and dresses.
   The collection was shown at the Royal Suite of the Hôtel le Meurice and Dinnigan had partnered with Woolmark on the collection.
   It is Dinnigan’s first collection since becoming a mother to her four-month-old son, Hunter.
   Meanwhile, we have video highlights from other designers at Paris: Lanvin, Issey Miyake, Viktor & Rolf and John Galliano. Scroll down past Dinnigan’s photos for the four videos.
