For his 100th show, Dries Van Noten chose essentialism espressed through minimalism, avoiding any type of celebratory excess. A sort of a reunion joined by his 54 epoch-making models and the brand’s classic prints.
“L’amour d’un gitan” is the title of the latest show of Jacquemus, a brand which built its story on the Frenchness aesthetic.
Loewe designed by J.W. Anderson, it’s a brand with a lot of expectations under its belt. “…a textural collection that plays and expands on what the house has accomplished with leather, interspersing it with a melodramatic element …The collection is a continuation. The dislocating void of the setting hints at the uncertain state in which the character of previous seasons returns. Where will she go next? How does she survive? Tension lurks beneath a veneer of composure. A heroine, astray, holds on to mystery…”
It’s a fact, Paris never ceases to touch us in a profound way!
