At some of the shows in Paris, uniformed men greeted guests and offered disposable face masks and big tubs of hand sanitiser. The coronavirus, which has seeped into the European parts of the world, has its own accessories. Some showgoers took advantage; some eased their designer masks into their ensemble (case in point: Akimoto Kozue with her mask, refer to image 28 in the slideshow above). And some shows proved eerily prescient, with the likes of Marine Serre and Maison Margiela presenting their own take on face coverings on the catwalks.
