The Best Moments At Paris Fashion Week Men's 2019
On Thursday, the fashion cognoscenti gathered at the Grand Palais to honour Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away at 85 in February. Dubbed as a "one-of-a-kind celebration, for a one-of-a-kind man," the memorial dazzled with star power, just like the legend himself. More than 2,500 guests attended the memorial, including Tommy Hilfiger, Brigitte Macron, Anna Wintour, Mario Testino and Carla Bruni.
To commemorate Lagerfeld, the exhibition featured 56 portraits of him throughout his life, along with video messages from famous friends like Claudia Schiffer, Gigi Hadid and Simon Porte Jacquemus. The spectacle was organised by fashion houses Fendi, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld and directed by opera director Robert Carsen.
“I wanted something full of life and unexpected,” Carsen told WWD.
2/3Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2020 menswear collection
Virgil Abloh is a master at creating garments that will keep people talking on and offline, and his third collection for Louis Vuitton was no exception. The French fashion house sent down dandies sporting florals, lush colours and even more lavish accessories. Meanwhile the show's backdrop—the cobbled streets of Place Dauphine—made for an ultra-romantic affair.
Beyond the runway, social media users couldn't stop talking about Chinese pop idol Kris Wu, who was seated at a front-row table with Gigi Hadid. All eyes were on Wu's outfit—a custom pink knit cardigan and matching T-shirt straight from Abloh latest collection.
3/3Vetements takes over McDonald's
Demna Gvasalia keeps Vetements' iconoclastic spirit alive with its latest show set at a local McDonald's. The French fashion house sent out branded condom invites, and the event was a critique of capitalism.
Models hit the catwalk wearing oversized garments emblazoned with musings like "NOBODY EVERYBODY ANYBODY SOMEBODY" and "DON'T SHOOT." Branch managers wore badges that said, "Hello My Name Is: Capitalism."
