The Christian Dior and Saint Laurent fashion shows were the most important events on the second day of Paris Fashion Week, which presents the spring summer 2023 collections. But beyond the fashion shows, in the Ville Lumière, many other important events for the national and international fashion scene took place. Let’s discover them together.
The Jacquemus boutique on avenue Montaigne
Simone Porte Jacquemus is a guy who thinks and does things big. She has demonstrated this on several occasions, from spectacular fashion shows (the ones among the lavender fields in Provence are hers) to pop-up stores in the fashion capitals up to her private sphere: she recently celebrated her wedding with Marco Maestri, in a very refined ceremony that challenged prejudices. September 27, for Jacquemus, was the moment of a significant return, the one in the most luxurious street of Parisian fashionAvenue Montaigne.
Everything is white, except for the colorful mini bags, in the store inaugurated during the Paris fashion week. To be clear, theavenue it is the same as the Dior headquarters, where the iconic address at number 30 was redesigned in the spring, combining the shop with the museum dedicated to the brand.
For day zero, Jacquemus, who remembers how he took his first steps in fashion on that street by presenting his collections more than ten years ago, has envisaged gigantic popcorn machinesto be offered to the invited fashion crowd.
Dear Loves Karl
Cara Delevingne at Paris Fashion Week was an acclaimed presence for many reasons. Primarily because the end of her career in modeling has not in the least meant her farewell to the fashion system. The professional bond and friendship that bound her to the great stylist Karl Lagerfeldwho passed away in 2019, took her to Paris, where a party celebrated the new capsule collection Carla loves Karl for spring summer.
The 30-year-old actress and former London supermodel looked radiant on the red carpet, wearing an all-black look with a trench coat, cuissardes and a criss-cross décolleté, all from the collection. Her hair was of a more reddish brown than usual, in a successful wavy hairstyle in agreement with lipstick and coral manicure. Cara Delevingne thus reassured her many fans about her condition: images recently circulated on the web had raised fears for her health.
Dream shoes – Bruno Frisoni
In the Galerie Van Der Straeten in the heart of the Marais, the French shoe designer Bruno Frisoni enchants guests and passers-by with sculpture sandals. The “discreet dandy”, as he likes to call himself, thus returns to the scene after his career with Roger Vivier and a ten-year absence. He doesn’t struggle to describe his as a big comeback, thanks to shoes that encompass the two concepts of oart object and body jewelry. Flowers are the protagonists of the spring summer models, in a vast palette that includes warm and tropical colors. The presentation runs until 28 September.
Not just fashion – The Getty collection at Christie’s
In Paris fashion week, there is also room for art. Until October 1, Christie’s exhibits in its headquarters behind the Champs-Élysées and major fashion events, the refined collection Ann&Gordon Getty, with 19th and 20th century masterpieces: works by Monet and Cézanne, porcelain, furniture. The pieces come from the design-loving philanthropist couple’s residence in San Francisco and are on display in Paris before going to auction in New York, October 20-23. Dresses, bags and jewels are also part of the collection.
Tea time with Heliot Emil
From the official calendar, it will parade on October 1st. But the Danish label by the brothers Julius and Victor Juul has already carved out its own space within the fashion week, on the afternoon of September 27, for tea time in collaboration with the Taiwanese brand Laïzé. It’s actually about bubble tea, an increasingly fashionable drink among young people that adds bubbles and aromas to perfumed water. Heliot Emil has imagined ecological and reusable stainless steel bottles to enjoy it. 75s were offered to early entrants to the event.
Love is love Jeanne Friot
With the lights going down, a party organized within the walls of the Casbah, a Parisian venue with a Moroccan atmosphere, was Jeanne Friot’s way of being remembered for this fashion week. The brand that professes to be “genre-free, carbon-free and hate-free” is a hymn to love for DNA. The party Love is love wanted to reaffirm the importance of love, with an exceptional “protagonist”: Madonnaan aficionado of the brand, whose photos crowded all the walls.
