FIVE MOMENTS WE WON’T FORGET FROM PARIS MEN’S FASHION WEEK
Though fashion week is technically not a competition, it might often times be seen as one. What each designer does to stand out against the “competition” sets the tone for the upcoming season, and the things that happen at fashion week, planned or not, are sometimes even more exciting than the clothes. With that in mind, here are five things that happened during Paris Fashion Week that will stay in our minds for the next couple months to come.
01. CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS
02. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAUL SMITH
The brand Paul Smith celebrates its 50th birthday this year. The company was founded way back in the 70s and the designer threw suitably celebratory show to ring in the next chapter. All the beautiful garments set aside, the show drew out the most incredible star-studded front row of this season. From Susan Sarandon, Ian McKellen, Jon Hamm, Anna Wintour, Mark Strong and so many more, they were all there, admiring the stunning collection. The man himself walked down the catwalk himself at the end of the show to roaring applause. It was very well deserved!!
03. TAKAHASHI’S THEATRE
04. THE ACNE STUDIOS’ ROBOT
05. THE REAL FAKE MOSS
Many fashion lovers where looking forward and where super excited to see what Guram Gvasalia, the fashion designer for Vetements, would do next, and if this show would continue Vetements’ reputation for absurdity. If you are a true fashion fanatic you probably remember last season’s fashion show of Vetements, when they showed their collection in a local McDonald’s.
Not surprisingly, Guram Gvasalia did not disappoint in terms of showmanship. He had models that looked very similar to super models and icons such as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Angelina Jolie, and even Snoop D – O – double G. This was done by either really impressive prosthetics, or he really found all these people’s Doppelgägers. Regardless of how he got the models, this year’s vetements show was simply amazing.
