The award for most elaborate show this week undoubtedly goes to H&M, which hosted its first fashion show within the grounds of the Musée Rodin, in specially constructed apartment, complete with a fully furnished kitchen, bathroom and dining room.

'Modern drama' was cited as the main influence for this range, which revolved around tailored pieces with a bohemian flair. A vein of monochrome ran through the collection and a range of decadent embellishments, from Russian inspired embroidered jackets to sheer kaftan style tunics emblazoned with sequins confirmed that austerity chic is Oh-vah.
