On Saturday evening, the French designer fêted her label’s sixth anniversary by celebrating upcycled fashion with a major Olympics-style show held in a stadium in Vanves, near Paris, followed by a party.
Menswear’s two most defiantly artistic designers – Craig Green and Jonathan Anderson – began Saturday with two strikingly unique visions in Paris, before Hermès presented a salutary lesson in nonchalant chic.
One reason Paris remains the world’s greatest fashion capital: the city is so photogenic. Underlined by a spectacular Ami sunset show at the Sacré Coeur and an Amiri catwalk display in the charming Jardin des Plantes.
Paris will always be a city of contrasting ideas. Like this Thursday, where luxury brand Louis Vuitton blended French romanticism with hip hop, as Californian-born Rick Owens sought inspiration from Ancient Egypt.
The Milan menswear season finished Monday with a path-breaking, sprightly and jaunty Zegna collection unveiled before a giant vista of the Italian Alps, in a season longing for a return to this country’s roots.
