Fashion Week Journal for Wednesday, March 4
Yes, Paris Fashion Week is about the shows. But who goes to Paris without seeing the sights? No, I didn’t visit the Eiffel Tower, but I will be stopping in on some showrooms while I’m here because some fashion company headquarters are cultural monuments, too.
And not unlike the Champ de Mars landmark, my first Paris Fashion Week showroom stop was also something of a romantic icon. The Paris-based brand The Kooples celebrates the sexes with modern, urban co-ed style—translated inside their homebase with marble, taxidermy, leather, and, notably, oversized black and white imagery of some of history’s chicest couples. Like Serge and Jane, above.
