PARIS — Retailers arrived at the end of the marathon of international collections with their measured optimism intact — despite punishing heat in Paris and a stream of sour economic news.
“We are still experiencing a strong business trend and our job is to fuel that trend cautiously,” said Barbara Atkin, vice president, fashion direction at Holt Renfrew, Canada. “The good news is that Paris has delivered a fresh new season of lighthearted, gentle clothes enriched with intricate, couturelike craftsmanship. Anything too hard-edged, dark and somber seems out of step.”
