PARIS (AFP) - The fashion crowd battled the elements in Paris on Sunday as snow covered the city on the last day of the menswear shows.

Spring-summer 2013 couture was due to pick up the baton on Monday although an early offering from Versace was scheduled for later Sunday.

A combination of sportswear and tailoring dominated Dutch designer Lucas Ossendrijver and artistic director Alber Elbaz's Lanvin winter 2013 collection, in keeping with many of the week's other shows.

Coats were loose-fitting and soft-shouldered or belted, quilted and body-hugging.
