PARIS (AFP) - Paris fashion week kicked off on Tuesday with a bold, "masculine" collection for women in neutral colours by experimental South Korean designer Moon Young Hee.

With Paris playing host to close on 90 ready-to-wear collections and presentations over nine days, the Paris-based designer was among the first on show, sending out an eye-catching autumn/winter 2013/14 collection of voluminous trousers, ruffle-covered tops and floor-length skirts.

A master of layering, known for her fluid, feminine designs, she limited herself to a restrained palette of black, white, grey and ecru.

Speaking after the show through a translator, she told AFP her collection aimed to combine her trademark style with a more "masculine" silhouette.
