KEN­ZO SS20

Today marked Car­ol Lim and and Hum­ber­to Leon’s final Ken­zo col­lec­tion after eight years at the helm of the house. There was only one way to go, and that’s with a bang. The show took place in Paris’s AccorHo­tels Are­na in front of an audi­ence of 6000 peo­ple (includ­ing over 4000 mem­bers of the pub­lic whom Lim and Leon has invit­ed to apply for tick­ets to the show ear­li­er this month).

WHAT DID IT LOOK LIKE?

WHAT DID IT SOUND LIKE?

Solange!! The singer made a sur­prise appear­ance, per­form­ing I’m A Wit­ness live with her band who she con­duct­ed on the run­way dur­ing the wom­enswear sec­tion of the show.

Listen now: Solange performing live at Kenzo SS20.

OF NOTE:

Two dance troupes pro­ceed­ed down each end of the run­way in slow-mo (to the dra­mat­ic sound of gongs and fan­fares) wear­ing super­size zori plat­forms that allowed for ethe­re­al movement.

WHAT WERE PEO­PLE SAY­ING ABOUT IT?

SIES MAR­JAN SS20

Sander Lak’s debut menswear col­lec­tion (shown at Opera Bastille look­ing out onto the Parisian sky­line) is a les­son in low-key lux­u­ry. Think min­i­mal­ist sil­hou­ettes and nude tones met by max-vol­ume colours and a recur­ring zebra print.

DIOR HOMME SS20

Kim Jones’ futur­is­tic SS20 Dior Homme col­lec­tion pays homage to Chris­t­ian Dior’s love of archi­tec­ture via dra­mat­ic sil­hou­ettes, con­trast­ing fab­ric com­bi­na­tions, fresh tex­tures and the pièce de résis­tance: a sculp­tur­al all-met­al take on the icon­ic sad­dle bag. Wear­ing chunky rub­ber-sole boots, Jones’ mod­els stomped down the Pep­to Bis­mal-pink sand run­way, past 10ft tall crum­bling white stone let­ters spelling out DIOR (con­cept­ed and cre­at­ed by Amer­i­can artist Daniel Arsham). Their desert essen­tials? Heavy-duty alu­mini­um back­packs (that mark Dior’s first ever col­lab­o­ra­tion with Rimowa) and a Dior X Rimowa cool box with slots for a cham­pagne bot­tle and two flutes.

VETE­MENTS SS20

Do you want fries with that? Dem­na Gvasalia is no stranger to sub­vert­ing the norms of fash­ion, his SS20 show loca­tion includ­ed. This sea­son he took us to the last place you’d expect (pre 3am) dur­ing Paris fash­ion week: the world’s favourite fast food joint, McDonald’s. Pro­por­tions were super­sized, char­ac­ters were present, uni­forms were riffed on and sig­na­ture Vete­ments-isms came into play as guests sipped coke from Vete­ments x McDon­alds paper cups. We were dis­ap­point­ed about the lack of fries.

RAF SIMONS SS20

Tak­ing place in a vast indus­tri­al sports hall (car­pet­ed in pink) on the out­skirts of Paris, Raf’s SS20 col­lec­tion was a response to cor­po­rate, con­sumer, fas­cist” Amer­i­ca (accord­ing to the voice over at the start). Think Stoned Amer­i­ca’ and Sup­port Labs’ slo­gans, lab coats, and a My Own Pri­vate Antwerp’ jack­et, sound­tracked by Mica Levi’s Under the Skin.
