Few fashion weeks are as international as Paris Menswear season, especially during the pandemic. As designers and marques never reach the French capital yet are determined to be listed on its official show schedule.
London Fashion Week ended Tuesday night after scores of virtual shows, presentations and debates, with a collection by Simone Rocha, and Priya Ahluwalia winning the latest Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Fashion.
One cannot fault Dunhill’s designer Mark Weston for lack of ambition. He paired very disparate cultures and concepts in his latest show – from Japanese 90s design to British tailoring to inside out fabrication.
Hosted by the brand’s creative director, ‘Dunhill Community: Live’ will see Mark Weston engage with music artists, actors and creatives in a series of weekly conversations launching on Instagram Live every Friday.
Men's fashion was hybrid at Sacai, rebellious and romantic at Dunhill, oscillating between past and future at Acné Studios, strength and fragility at Ludovic de Saint Sernin, and sportswear and couture at Pigalle.
One menswear brand seemingly on the rise is Dunhill, formerly a sleeping beauty in the Richemont luxury conglomerate, with creative director Mark Weston unveiling his most compelling collection yet in Paris on Sunday.
Great to see one brand still proudly flying the flag for British tailoring, as the shadow of Brexit approaches. Its name: Dunhill, which staged a stylish, self-assured and high-octane show Sunday night.
