Picasso-level prints, unexpected castings and masculine glam … meet CRbelow the roster to watch.
While it’s not an official debut for the brand this season, Amiri is just getting started. Blending the energy of Los Angeles cool kids with a street culture ethic, the brand launched custom look design for major rock stars. Ever heard of Steven Tyler? After a few capsule collections and the concept store reigns, founder Mike Amiri was nominated for the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award.
Amiri airs in Paris on January 20 at 10:30 am Central European Time.
In an ever-increasing gender fluidity in all artistic spaces, Bianca Saunders is emerging just in time. Injecting the menswear landscape with female roots and its West Indian background, the Andam Grand Prix winner has taken London Fashion Week by storm for several seasons. Now, her eponymous brand hits the most prestigious runways, with colorful ingenuity to boot.
Bianca Saunders will perform in Paris on January 19th at 10am Central European Time.
Any brand approved by the fashion boss, LVMH, has the potential for an accelerated explosion. Masayuki Ino, winner of the conglomerate award in 2018, and his Japanese streetwear label, Doublet, are doing just that. Forging a kitschy twist within the trendiest category of fashion, Ino’s pop-up ramen and plush bags contain a sense of childish wonder often absent from the Parisian look. Doublet is sure to impress.
Doublet airs in Paris on January 23 at 1.30pm Central European Time.
Both the ones and the metaverses are transformed by the futuristic French duo EgonLab. Defining itself as an “emerging brand that draws inspiration from social culture and all forms of revolution that have had an impact on the modern world” in metal magazine, founders Florentin Glémarec and Kevin Nompeix are passionate about clothing whoever those who want to show off their designs (even digitally). Age, gender, life path: it doesn’t matter. The less conventional, the better. Very rarely can the dream of pure fashion ambiguity be achieved … unless there is EgonLab.
EgonLab will be presented in Paris on January 18th at 5:30 pm Central European Time.
A true interpretation of his fast-paced New York cultural roots, KidSuper’s Colm Dillane synthesizes his “Generation X sports work ethic” with true artistic genius. Organic colors and shapes find their place in an amalgam of funky streetwear and refined evening looks. Now with a Puma collaboration and LVMH Karl Lagerfeld award behind her, Dillane is simultaneously causing a stir in the world of fashion and art, merging galleries and runways. And after a New York takeover, with Pete Davidson and King Combs as superfans, Paris is about to get a little more colorful.
KidSuper will air in Paris on January 22 at 8pm Central European Time.
Copenhagen style is experiencing a trending state following an it-girl spread of all things Scandinavian. So it was fitting for Rains, the Danish outerwear brand renowned for conceptual utilitarianism, to show their grandest collection ever at the fashion capital’s Palais de Tokyo for Fall / Winter 2022. Teased cryptically on the page Instagram of the brand, a Northern Lights theme will adorn silhouettes of reinvented outerwear.
Rains is scheduled in Paris on January 20 at 12:30 pm Central European Time.
Nobody goes viral like the Gvasalia family. After the great success of Vetements and the mighty kingdom of Demna in Balenciaga, a new spinoff was launched in July … VTMNTS. The minimalist aesthetic of the fresh, often quite cheeky brand’s menswear has really spread like wildfire, immediately available at over 100 retailers around the world upon release. If the debut of VTMNTS is any indication of what’s to come … we’re watching it.
VTMNTS exhibition in Paris on January 21 at 7:30 pm Central European Time.
Born only in 2019, Bluemarble’s rapid appearance on the Paris calendar is nothing short of majestic. Founder Anthony Alvarez sees menswear through an almost surrealist lens; his approach already sported by the likes of Swae Lee and Euphoriais Jacob Eldori. Bold but wearable prints dance the line between flamboyant and chic, settling in a spot that has rightfully caught the world’s attention. And now that of Paris.
Bluemarble is on display in Paris on January 18 at 4pm Central European Time.
