With Paris being the traditional close-out week in the fashion calendar, it’s usually a good barometer of what’s to come as larger trends are distilled from the runway into palatable pieces for the masses. But what about the stylish folks who are actually attending these shows?

While some of the recurring themes from brands who showed in Paris this season put androgynous style, cozy tailoring, and techwear in the spotlight, a seemingly different show was happening on the streets where DIY aesthetics and brilliant tie-dye inspirations frequently caught the attention of our photographers.

Raf Simons’ infamous graffiti lab coat, spotted outside the Louis Vuitton show, could be mistaken for a DIY high school project if the internet didn’t catch Virgil Abloh rocking it first in 2015. The romanticism with handmade objects are as old as time, but just because the DIY aesthetic has been co-opted by high fashion doesn’t mean it costs a fortune to actually do it.

Take up-and-coming designer Ev Bravado. The Long Island native’s penchant for meticulously distressed denim and DIY streetwear landed him an opportunity to work with Gap to reimagine the brand’s iconic pullover hoodie at Paris Fashion Week. With no shortage of guides out there showing how easy it is to dye your own pieces (including our own), it’s an inexpensive solution for a creative flex.

Check out some of our favorite looks above and peep everything that went down at Paris Fashion Week SS20.
