Dior pulls the stars in conveyor-belt menswear show in Paris

Dior pulls the stars in conveyor-belt menswear show in Paris The sheer scale of Dior menswear designer Kim Jones' pop-up venue meant only one thing: that he was competing for show of the season at Paris Fashion Week. But this superlative display needed no gimmicks to please. At Berluti, Belgian designer Kris Van Assche didn't let the fall-winter mood dampen any of his zest for color while South Korean designer Juun J. showed intentional mismatching and deconstruction at his show Friday in Paris.

Paris Fashion Week has some heavy hitters strolling down the runway, from Stella McCartney (which saw dad, Paul, and Bono front row at its show) to Givenchy, Gaultier, and Saint Laurent. Yesterday brought out the much-hyped collection from Kenzo

PARIS — Psychedelic Peruvian paintings covered panel upon panel of Kenzo's fall menswear show that celebrated of one of the designer's fascinating Chinese-Peruvian heritage.

Here are some highlights of Sunday's installment of Paris Fashion Week.

KENZO DESIGNER'S ROOTS

The set, painted by artist Pablo Amaringo, evoked scenes inspired by the hallucinogenic Amazonian "ayahuasca" brew — with multicolor space ships, jungle, parrots and deer merging into one — and had some fashion guests squinting amid fluorescent lighting.

Kenzo Takada left his native Japan in 1964 when he was just 25 and fresh out of fashion school. The story goes that he traveled by boat to Paris , with Its current creative directors, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, reminded the fashion crowd of Kenzo ' s roots at its Paris Fashion Week show dubbed

Designer Humberto Leon's family is Tusan, a Peruvian people whose ancestors arrived in Latin America in the 19th century from Guangdong province in China.

The theme provided a rich fashion tapestry in the clothes — from Andean mountaineering styles with woolies, fun hiking boots, utilitarian rucksacks and amassed layering, to ethnic textiles in flashes of bright color.

Beyond the encyclopedic theme, there were some trendy touches in deconstruction — such as a series of cross jackets with Asian-style cinched waists that sported the inner sleeve lining on the outside.

BENDING THE GENDER RULES

A number of houses have in recent seasons been bending the set rules and showing women's pre-collections or women's ready-to-wear during the back-to-back menswear and couture calendar such as Proenza Schouler and Rodarte.

It's seen to maximize exposure given that the world's fashion press is in attendance. Other houses have started to combine women's and men's collections, like Saint Laurent, in a cost-effective move that reduces the amount of glitzy presentations they are obliged to put on.

Kenzo used the menswear media spotlight Sunday to showcase the women's fall-winter ready-to-wear as part of the same runway show.

The styles borrowed from some of the menswear themes as they riffed on Andean references, and included wacky additions such as colored feather boas, stoles and hats that gave the female designs a slightly 1920s Parisian twist.

Gender fluidity is a hot theme in the increasingly androgynous styles in Paris. Labels such as Maison Margiela have gone co-ed in recent collections, as designers blur the definition of any boundaries between men's and women's clothes to produce genderless designs.

Thom Browne goes for spectacle at Paris Fashion Week

Thom Browne goes for spectacle at Paris Fashion Week Thom Browne provided the biggest spectacle on a relatively quiet day at Paris Fashion Week as some fashion houses decided to switch their presentation dates or showing times to avoid yellow vest protesters. An off-kilter universe awaited guests Saturday at Thom Browne's ever-inventive show that was covered in bubble wrap. Federico Curradi, the creative director of Rochas menswear, was in an arty, literary mood as he led guests around an atelier space for an immersive presentation.

JACQUEMUS DREAMS OF BLUER SKIES

Much-feted womenswear designer Jacquemus returned to male designs Sunday, one year after the young French designer expanded his lines into menswear with a show in southern France.

Simon Porte Jacquemus, 29, found fashion fame for his relaxed, summery women's styles that harkened to his native city of Marseille on the Mediterranean coast.

Here in Paris, and in menswear, the fall-winter collection captured this nonchalant, sunny vibe in light open white cotton sweaters with an outdoors motif, a loose double breasted yellow suit worn against bare skin and an unseasonably bright color palette.

An olive tree that made up the set decor glistened in the background, and contrasted with the misty Parisian weather outside.

Broad square pockets and boxy proportions provided one new style idea, but the show was too relaxed for its own good and lacked the creative energy of his women's designs.

Its most potent effect was to spur on fatigued fashionistas to yearn for bluer skies and warmer temperatures.

Banksy work stolen from Paris terror attack venue.
A painting in homage to terror victims by famous street artist Banksy has been stolen from the Bataclan concert hall in Paris, where 90 people were killed in 2015 in a jihadist attack. The white stencilled oeuvre showing a sad-faced girl on one of the emergency doors of the famed Parisian venue was cut out and taken away. "Banksy's work, a symbol of recollection and belonging to all: locals, Parisians, citizens of the world has been taken from us," the establishment said, stressing the staff's "deep indignation.
