Another week of fashion month, another destination on Schön!’s list. This season, we’ve already taken you backstage at New York and Milan and, this time, it’s Paris turn. To conclude our fashion week coverage, we’re taking you behind the scenes at some the hottest shows of the Paris route with photographer Nick Merzetti.
First on our list is Indian designer Rahul Mishra. For SS20, Mishra took over Paris with textures — from floral patterns to skyscraper motifs. With a predominantly monochrome colour palette, Mishra dazzled again on the catwalk; pastel pinks liven up the scene. The devil was definitely in the detail during Mishra’s showing, where delicate and immaculate embroidery took centre stage.
Victoria & Tomas brought out the colour for its Spring 2020 show. The French ready-to-wear house, helmed by Latvian designer Victoria Feldman and Russian Tomas Berzins, presented both of both worlds. The Parisian inspiration dominated both the colour palette and angular silhouettes, but a global wearer was definitely in the duo’s mind.
Kunihiko Morinaga took us back to school at Anrealage. offering his own take of the school uniform, the Japanese designer presented a sobre collection, in terms of colour, that got revamped with oversized silhouettes. Proportions were key in Morinaga’s showing and he sure knows how to take advantage of them in this collection, aptly titled “Angle.”
With the maison’s distinctive cleanliness as the main conductor, Issey Miyake threw a fully fledge party for SS20. Larger-than-life clothing merged perfectly with a flamboyant colour party to bring forth a celebration of fashion and life. Silhouettes and structure were as pristine as you’d expect from the brand.
To round off the first offering of our backstage coverage, we’re transporting you to the deliberately kitschy world of Leonard Paris. Mixing athleisure wear and tropical prints, Christine Phung delivered a collection that was, above all, a colour explosion.
