In Paris one can get bored. And beauty cannot save everything! This time it has to be said that Milan beat Paris 2 to 1.
I don’t know what happened, but from the shows to the street, finding myself in the carriages of the metrò with colleagues, I found myself sharing a feeling of unsatisfaction. Stunning catwalks, but collections that didn’t offer much to buy. Or even catwalks where more had clearly been invested in the show than in the creation of the collection itself. I fully agree with the article by @AngeloFlaccavento.
At the tradeshow we seemed to breath an outdated air, that sometimes hinted at an open window to let something new in, presentations included. Attracting the attention of buyer means having a clear idea and a proposal that is a true “mise-en-scène” of the quality of the product.
The most captivating show was Dries Van Noten.
The designer I would place my bets on is Simon Porte, whose @Jacquemus collection was refined and sensual and at the same time young. A balance between volume and lightness that will bring a real oomph to the wardrobes of my clients.
Decidedly complete, strong and fierce, bring joy to a buyer, @OffWhite brought Naomi Campbell, “The panther” to the catwalk. New shoe shapes and a variety of prints that made for a very rich proposal.
Allure and femininity in @MaisonMargiela‘s collection.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LOCATION
The salle des fètes in the Hotel de ville for the Dries Van Noten show.
WE WILL HEAR LOTS ABOUT
Crocs in collaboration with Balenciaga. I am convinced they will be the biggest hit of summer.
