Fashion month always ends on a high note with Paris Fashion Week. We’ve sent seasoned Interview photographer Christopher Gabello across the Atlantic to go backstage and front row, capturing the newest Spring trends and freshest faces.

What began as a classic Yohji Yamamoto collection—think all black with deconstructed and relatively soft silhouettes—soon led to an assault of layered neons and pixilated camo prints on chiffon. These contrasting elements made Yamamoto’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection feel disjointed, yet somehow (maybe with the help of the models’ powdered hair and neon accessories?) he managed to make it work. Fittingly, he privately named the collection “Meaningless Excitement.”
