Paris Fashion Week kicked off on Tuesday. The city will host the international style set for a week of haute fashion and street chic. Here are some of the looks that caught my eye on this first day out style hunting:

THE GIRL: Sonia is a buyer for a concept store in Shanghai.
SPOTTED: Quai Malaquais in Paris.
HER STYLE: Art-gallery chic.
WHY WE LOVE IT!  Sonia shows her creative touch with this clever combo of textures and patterns, from her Burberry skirt,
vintage sweater and Marni clutch to her bracelets and Givenchy shoes.
