Paris Fashion Week: September 27
Highlights from yesterday’s shows, including art-meets-fashion at Junya Watanabe, the new It shoes from Acne and Jean Paul Gaultier’s ready-to-wear dénouement.
There’s never a dull moment at a Junya Watanabe show. His cubist-inspired runway collection for spring may seem a little wacky at first glance, but if you look beyond the fantastical styling pieces, you’ll find cute striped tops, pleated skirts and other closet pleasers.
Leave it to Acne to turn out the freshest footwear silhouette of the season thus far: pointed toes, chunky heels and an overall sculptural vibe.
Jean Paul Gaultier recently announced his decision to focus solely on fragrance and couture, meaning this is the last ready-to-wear collection we’ll see from the iconic French designer. Unsurprisingly, he went out with a bang, showing a dazzling retrospective of career hits, from his tailored femme fatale to the ’80s glamour girl.
