It’s official, Paris Fashion Week (men’s) has begun. Eurostars are crammed, Le Marais is thriving, and this season’s schedule is full to the brim. We’re rounding up some of the pop-ups, events and shows not to be missed if you’re in town – in between all the touristing and restauranting, obviously.
FOREVER GOOD X VENTED
Linking up in Paris is VENTED & FOREVER GOOD – two creative houses set to transform a gallery with art, installations and a collaborative pop-up store in Le Marais. Kicking it all off is a 6-hour turn-up live from the store, which will see Deto Black, Feux, Vinch, Jamo Beatz, NOSA, & Boiler Room ‘sheller’ Chef Dee perform on the 23rd, it’s an international affair.
HEAVEN CAN WAIT
On Saturday, UK streetwear label Heaven Can Wait are bringing its international tour to Paris. Founded by Felix Spooner, the brand is most well known for its knitted sweaters and vests, but the brand’s upcoming collection is set to be their biggest yet. Swing down to 4 Rue Sainte-Anastase, 75003 Paris, between 12-5pm.
On the party front, one which can be RSVP’d to is Arte Antwerp’s celebration. Boasting an all-star lineup, including DJ Jyoty and Baby Keem, this will be one to watch come Friday evening – that’s if you make it that far.
CULTED favourite Philéo is putting on a presentation in Paris this week too. The sneaker designer and director has already had a great career at 19 years old – from creating his first brand aged 13, to being introduced to CDG’s director and landing his sneaker label in Dover Street Market Paris, Philéo’s business and creative acumen has developed into being at the helm of multiple brands and creative endeavours. Catch his new collection on Saturday.
Obviously, the main events of the week are the shows. Whilst there are too many to list off here (although if you are after a schedule, check this out), some of the one’s we’re most looking forward to are Rick Owens (obvious reasons), Kenzo (to see Nigo’s first ‘menswear’ collection for the brand), a possible new creative director at Louis Vuitton, and CELINE – who’s show is both shrouded in mystery and closing the week off.
