Paris Fashion Week chooses digital and video to keep the show going anyway, despite the CoVid-19 pandemic.
In fact, the events continue to follow each other frantically as if nothing had happened – with many videos and links, but few live shows.
The result, however, is spectacular for men’s fashion and Haute Couture.
Let’s see together, in the following lines, an account of the Parisian event dedicated to men’s fashion.
Louis Vuitton, artists, sellers, architects and vagabonds
Louis Vuitton’s fall / winter 2021/2022 collection expresses itself through characters . Virgil Abloh’s collection was broadcast in a 13-minute video.
The short film explores the brand’s creations for men’s fashion through four typical characters: artist, salesman, architect and vagabond.
The characters of everyday life are used by the stylist to neutralize the prejudices we create when we see someone’s clothes.
Everyone has the right to the same opportunities, so the prints become written for a fashion without prejudice whatsoever .
To do this, the designer mixes the Ghanaian Kente cloth with the Scottish motif. The Vuitton man has a style with completely different elements: the red accessories on the black, the kilts, the patchwork, the mix of genres and fabrics, up to the original exaltation of the architect, where the garment becomes the depiction of palaces and figures.
Fashion invites you to express yourself, without combining anything.
