Paris started brilliantly with some interesting styles, to say the least.
Starting off with a designer who I have personally never heard of before or seen his work but I must say it is something that I would like to see again. Facetasm designer, Hiromichi Ochiai, chose models that were vastly culturally diverse which is highly commendable and all looked great in the designs they were placed in. However, Vogue still correctly stated:
“The industry still has a way to go in regard to equal catwalk representation.”
– Vogue Runway
He opened his Fall 2017 show with hoodies and sweatpants that had a train that added the punch of uniqueness to the look. Ochiai was heavily influenced by where he comes from, Tokyo (Side note: A place that I would love to visit), where he says “anything goes” which reflected throughout the collection.
Even though the collection looked like it was all street style and it would be easily wearable with puffer jacket material, it was extremely unorthodox with both Male and Female pieces. There are many pieces within each look that would be easy to wear but the whole ensemble definitely deserves to be on the Runway.
Demna Gvasal used simple suits and classic styles and re-imagined them.
Day one was fantastic! Onward and Upward to day 2.
