As seen on the streets in Paris

Less peacocking, more stolen moments: photographer Marc-Henri Ngandu captures the best looks at the AW20 menswear shows.

With 53 menswear shows to host (and couture week coming up), Paris is fashion week’s behemoth. This year, the chaos surrounding the shows has largely been eclipsed by a national transport strike taking place in protest over government plans for pension reform — breaking records as it entered its sixth consecutive week. Still, PFW persevered with spirits undamped, as documented by photographer Marc-Henri Ngandu. He uses his gift for capturing the little things to paint an alternative picture of Paris fashion week. Less peacocking, more stolen moments: a stranger smiles coyly behind Bella Hadid; a Thom Browne Hector tote stands out among a street vendor’s trinkets. As ever, the show must go on. Click through the gallery below for Ngandu’s take on the AW20 shows.
