The Paris menswear week is starting on Tuesday in a city still disrupted by strikes. The official calendar features 53 Fall/Winter 2020-21 shows, with another 20 scheduled off-calendar - an unprecedented number.
54 fashion houses will show in Paris between 14 and 19 January. Although Celine may be sitting this one out, five new brands will be stopping by for the first time, while Jacquemus and Givenchy are making their return.
The luxury retailer has partnered with various men’s brands to celebrate the launch of menswear on 27 January. Key brands include Prada, Gucci, Loewe, Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga.
For his third runway show for the house of Louis Vuitton, Virgil Abloh produced an inventive, clever, experimental and even elegiac collection staged with aplomb in the charming Place Dauphine on the Seine.
Egyptian pharaohs, Mexican embalming, weekend sailors, YouTube videos, human musculature and a reborn Lazarus all contributed to the latest collection from Craig Green - the most inventive menswear designer in the UK.
