Launch Slideshow

Show: Paul & Joe Spring 2013

Theme: Pastel getaway

Accessories: Woven belts, strappy sandals and high heels, round-frame sunglasses, pastel satchels, leather-weave clutches, black-and-white geometric bags and a floral tote

Overall Takeaway: On the second to last day of Paris Fashion Week—after seeing collections in New York, London and Milan—the tropical parrot sweater at the Paul & Joe show pretty much summed it up—it’s time to take a vacation.

Between the chambray shorts and airy geometric maxi dress with matching bathing suit, the mood was light and seemed getaway inspired. Where to? Judging by the white blazers, glittery pants and Art Deco pastel sweaters, it looked like the Paul & Joe girl is set for a holiday in Miami. Then again, the collection’s long white dress with oversized blooms running down the middle might suggest Hawaii or southern California, though a retro 1960s version of either locale.

Wherever she’s headed—even if it’s just to the park to laze around in her striped trousers—it’s clearly time for a little R&R. Bon voyage!
