ISSEY MIYAKE LIKE THE WIND

Collection that was full of graceful and very wearable clothing, thus inspiring the name of the collection, “Up, Up and Away”.

Some looks featured plaid and then a distorted print, in orange, white and black, or yellow, navy and white. A yellow hooded jacket, slightly rounded, flared at the back like a cape.

KIDILL PARIS 2025

The collections of the KIDILL brand, founded in 2014 by Hiroaki Sueyasu, mix Harajuku street style with the punk irreverence of the 90s.

VUITTON AND THE OLYMPIC FRAME

The artist kicked off Paris Men’s Fashion Week on Tuesday at UNESCO, and focused on the next Olympic Games following the Lord’s order. Pharrell Williams teaches us about his origins: Welcome “to Africa”, if you were blind, under the frightened eyes of Anna Wintour, who on Park Avenue had never seen a black man so ready.

Rather than a true hymn to sporting performance, the programming was a celebration of humanity for the LVMH group that seems above ground. Williams played with archetypes like the Diplomat, complete with ’70s richness, then beaded pajamas to lull us to sleep.

The “Happy” singer’s bright-toned silhouettes, including a selection of flocked, monogrammed and sparkling tracksuits, are sure to please French footballers Mbappé.

Finally, the only interesting thing about this collection was the music which sanctified the parade on a background more “God kalispel than “Gospel”. Hallelujah, but God is Humor!

Twenty years ago, Daniel Brühl met Karl Lagerfeld on a photo shoot. With “Becoming Karl Lagerfeld,” a six-part TV series premiering on Hulu on June 7, Brühl hopes to dig a little deeper into the designer’s life. “We wanted to find out who was the person before he became the persona and before he became famous,” he explains.

The film takes place in the 1970s, at the height of Lagerfeld’s rivalry with Yves Saint Laurent. It portrays a very different picture of Lagerfeld, who intentionally muddled many details of his early life, including his birth date, in order to further his career.

Lagerfeld, who at the start of the decade was a designer for hire working with houses including Chloé, is portrayed as envious of Saint Laurent’s reputation as the king of haute couture; stifled by his domineering mother, and struggling to achieve emotional and physical intimacy with Jacques de Bascher, the love of his life.
