Andrew Gn SS2016 Paris Runway Show @PalaisdeTokyo

Posted by Paige Donner

The stage set at the Palais de Tokyo on Avenue du President Wilson in Paris greeted guests with white light butterflies.

This collection, explained Andrew Gn in his accompanying show program, was in part inspired by a precious Chinese antique porcelain vase given to him by his parents when he was just 15. It is covered with butterflies and iridescent colors.

Sadly, just before the models walked, a voice over the loudspeaker announced that Andrew would not bow at the end of this show as he had done at all his others.

He had just undergone open heart surgery and was recovering. The voice said he was recovering nicely.

Sending blessings and love from Paris to this talented fashion designer...

The Ritual Project FW15


designed by Glenn Martens

For Y/PROJECT FW15, Glenn Martens continues to explore thefine border between youth and adulthood.  By opposing architectural cuts with comfortable fits, graphic tailoring with urban streetwear, technical highlights with a nostalgic fundament, Y/PROJECT continues to thrive on transcendent versatility. 
Tweed track pants, sleek vinyl suits and scooter jackets, easy wool bombers with shearling lining, vegetally treated leather trench coats with jean jacket paneling, knitwear with leather details...The Y/PROJECT AW15 collection is a twist of futuristic hip-hop and classical elegance. 

Pour Y/PROJECT AH15, Glenn Martens continue d'explorer les limites entre jeunesse et maturité.  En opposant des coupes architecturales à des matières souples, la netteté graphique au streetwear urbain, l'aspect technique à un fond de nostalgie, Y/PROJECT prospère dans sa transcendante polyvalence. 
Pour sa troisième saison comme directeur creatif de Y/PROJECT, Martens propose une juxtaposition fascinante des tissus classiques et tech qui créent des effets graphiques Op-Art.  La collection Y/PROJECT AH15 a une touche de hip-hop futuriste et l'élégance classique.

This year's Men's SS15 runway show in Paris for the Vibskov line took place amidst a backdrop of a water ballet performed outdoors in the beautiful Paris Marais by the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet dance troupe. Choreographer was Alexander Ekman. The performance was given as an extension of their recent production of Swan Lake at the Oslo Opera House.

The 150M2 shallow pool that served as the central focal point around which the models walked, was filled with 4000 liters of water. Choreographer Ekman is internationally acclaimed and sought after for his ability to pair wit and playfulness.

The models for the Vibskov SS15 Men's collection shown in Paris wore monk-like headpieces and specially made tight fitting neoprene water shoes which allowed them to glide around the Place Baudoyer catwalk.

Brick motifs became the building blocks of sweat styles, reconstructed double-faced jersey and assembled patterns.
