Fashionistas have been predicting the death of haute couture for over decade, but when the next Paris haute couture season debuts next week, it will boast more live catwalk shows than any fashion season this year.
The Spring-Summer 2022 men’s fashion week scheduled from June 22-27 in Paris will feature six physical shows, including those by Dior and Hermès, plus the Jacquemus show on June 30, to be staged near the French capital.
The Federation de la Haute Couture et de la Mode has confirmed that French authorities will allow live catwalk shows in July's haute couture season in Paris; and added Pyer Moss as one of its guest members.
The opening day of Paris haute couture week ended with three experienced designers -- Giambattista Valli, Julie de Libran and Olivier Theyskens at Azzaro -- showing collections that captured the couture's energy.
The house of Azzaro has appointed Olivier Theyskens to be its new Artistic Director, in a surprise move sure to receive an enthusiastic response as he is regarded as one of the industry’s most naturally gifted designers.
Rahul Mishra, Julie de Libran (ex-creative director of Sonia Rykiel) and Imane Ayissi have joined the official calendar of the Paris Haute Couture week for next January, while Bouchra Jarrar will make her comeback.
French cosmetics giant L'Oréal and Clarins group announced Monday the conclusion of its agreement for the sale of the Mugler brands and Azzaro fragrances to L'Oreal, according to a news statement from the two groups.
The French cosmetics giant has entered into negotiations with Clarins with a view to acquire the two perfume brands, as well as Mugler’s fashion business, an operation which would reinforce L’Oréal’s luxury division.
