PARIS — There’s more to the couture than stunning evening dresses. Once upon a time, most of its customers ordered the then-indispensible, Ladies-Who-Lunch suits, and day clothes still play important roles in the collections today.

For spring, for example, there were plenty of great jackets and coats that featured intriguing uses of volume, ranging from John Galliano’s truncated little Edie Sedgwick number for Dior to Jean Paul Gaultier’s soft, fluid safari jacket, slashed at one shoulder, to Karl Lagerfeld’s striking swing-back tweed coat for Chanel.Photos by Giovanni Giannoni
