As Paris Fashion Week continues… It is more provocative and had more class…
Commes des Garcons
It’s been less than a month from the protests in Paris And now things are turning to normal. And nobody wants to talk about it. It’s beside the point that fashion shows meant to take place on Saturday afternoon were rescheduled in order not to collide with the demonstrations, but the message is that the protesters are making themselves heard. And regardless of socio-political convictions, the violence connected with the movement is making people some kind scared. Rei Kawakubo’s show notes at Comme des Garçons on Friday evening reminded us that “there is no light without dark.”
Freedom, they say, is the ultimate luxury. Upon his arrival at Berluti in April, Kris Van Assche was confronted with this very contrast to the creative structure he had known for so long. Kris Van Assche debuted his inaugural show for Berluti at the Opera Garnier in Paris.
He turned the dye-stained patterns on the marble surfaces into prints, used in his debut collection on silk shirts and bags structured in crocodile. Then, he extracted each colour from the pattern and painted every garment in the collection in them, from tailoring to leather pieces and jacquards.
