Men’s fashion week ended with two remarkable performances, which reminded us that a) male models are always a pleasure to watch b) this is basically a modern woman’s show c) couture week is minutes away and we’ve still got to recover from the fashion overdose of these past days.
RYNSHU: The Japanese designer always puts on a black and white, fearless yet elegant show. This time, he followed the same recipe and offered warrior like clothes: scarves, blazers with sleeves seemingly ripped, silver army boots. But Rynshu had a surprise for us--front man of Black Eyed Peas Will.i.a.m modeled the show, as a sign of sympathy for Japan’s current condition. And there is more--the designer and the singer will be launching a collection together, entitled "WILL I AM x RYNSHU" for the SS2012 season. Unfortunately not made for lovely lady lumps.
ACNE: Acne presented its second male catwalk in Paris as a concluding note to Paris fashion week. And we hate to gush, but it was rather impeccable--both the show itself, and the collection, which was crisp and precise. The theme was functionality meets '70s Sweden: think suede baseball caps matched with simple turtle necks, baseball jackets followed by colored lapels. And as always, plenty of champagne served before and after the show. What more can you ask for?
