Paris Fashion Week is fashion month’s cherry on the cake. The City of Love’s Fashion Week is home to many established names, juxtaposed with their younger colleagues. These younger counterparts often show their progressive view on fashion and sustainability, where established labels rely on their signature look and feel. This results in an interesting mix of designers, trends and cultures. Fashion Week translates the city into a melting pot of young and old, traditional and progressive and everything in between. Therefore, we provide daily updates about the shows, collections and the stories behind them. Today: Koché and Louis Vuitton.

Paris Fashion Week
The great thing is that Paris Fashion Week is home to many female designers. Take for example Sarah Burton (Alexander McQueen, Claire Wright Keller (Givenchy), Stella McCartney and Virginie Viard (Chanel) – all great women who show during Paris Fashion Week. We can’t longer suppress our excitement. Luckily, we don’t have to, since PFW is in full force. Read everything about Koché and Louis Vuitton below.
Diesel’s Renzo Rosso has mentored Christelle Kocher via the ANDAM Prize during the last months. The first collection since their partnership was showed to the public at the AccorHotels Arena at Paris’ 12th arrondissement. It doesn’t come as a surprise that the first looks of Koché’s collection consisted of denim.
Koché is known for blending and mixing streetwear influences with high fashion items. This resulted in flawless and over-the-top denim skirts, suits and other perfectly fitted items. Of course, her signature slip dresses couldn’t be left behind. For this collection, it was combined with skinny jeans – Russo must have been proud.
This May, Nicholas Ghesquière will co-host the Met Gala, themed “About Time: Fashion and Duration.” With this in mind, Ghesquière created a collection with the past looking at the future in mind. That might sound cryptic, and it actually is. To clarify, it’s all about how fashion mirrors the current state of society.
Ghesquière is known for studying past times thoroughly, way better than his peers. In line with this, he like to play with contradictions. In this collection, he let petticoats clash with sportive parkas and so on. These parkas were most striking and characteristic for our time. Despite that Virgil Abloh earlier stated that “streetwear is dead”, Ghesquière proved him wrong.
