Jana Pokorny Parlour X

“When travelling to fashion week – particularly at this time of year since it’s very cold in the Northern Hemisphere, I arm myself with a fabulous coat or jacket. I’m not so much about a statement bag – for me it is more about a statement coat/ jacket or shoe. Everything else I keep super simple. I wear black pants, jeans, silk blouses, fine knits and always have a couple of pairs of statement earrings on hand. I also take a gorgeous evening dress and clutch for evening events." - Jana Pokorny, fashion director, Marie Claire Australia

“I’m having a love affair with pastels at the moment, so I’ll be tapping into this trend a bit this season with shirting and midi skirts. I am going to use oversized trenches (which are having a big moment this season!) and layer these over blazers to toughen up my look, as well as mixing in structural accessories like sharp satin mules or pointed-toe slides. I never go anywhere without trainers or leather pants, as these act as a perfect base for layering almost everything.” - Candice Lake, photographer “In those tiny European streets, walking is often the most efficient mode of travel between shows, so my first priority is to curate a shoe inventory that balances style with comfort. I'll be packing the ugly chunky sneaker, an embellished loafer and a sleek kitten-heel boot. Then I simply add a versatile trans-seasonal wardrobe: long line dresses, crisp shirting and statement denim – all pieces that can be layered for warmth.” - Jiawa Liu, Beige Renegade

“Attending the international shows each season is an incredible part of my role but it involves a lot of running around, so I ensure I pack statement-making items that can be easily mix-and-matched. Usually, I pick a colour scheme and stick to it; taking my cues from one 'hero' print, I then coordinate back with a fabulous jacket, a pair of easy-to-walk in shoes (usually Céline) and a bag that is big enough will hold everything." - Eva Galambos, buyer and director, Parlour X

“I’ve learnt that in Paris, it’s about discreet chic; precision tailoring (whatever the silhouette) and flattering cuts in classic, low-key styles. For me, that means strong foundations like cropped denim, a tailored suit, (to wear separately with basics for day, then together with heels for parties) my YSL Kate bag, a pair of Céline gold doorknockers and my Balenciaga X Christian Louboutin black sling-backs. Realistically though, it’s all about my Kenzo Move sneakers embroidered with a sprinting tiger – kind of like how I feel running between shows!” - Divya Bala, fashion writer
