Off-White Fall Winter 2022-2023 Paris “Question Everything”. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
Milan Fashion Week overlapped Paris Fashion Week. Milan Fashion Week was not over yet but Paris fashion week started. The first day was opened by the celebrities show Off-White.
Spaceship Earth, an “Imaginary Experience” or / “Question Everything” was the theme and story of the show. It is another homage to late Virgil Abloh. And this is not just a story of the show, it is also a cultural project organized together with Galeries Lafayette – a playground for big kids, with skateboard training.
“A manifesto for his democratic and inclusive fashion revolution, this disruptive debut “high fashion” collection conceived and designed by Virgil takes the establishment’s most sacred symbols and turns them on their head. Cultural reinterpretation, disruption and transformation open the door to future dialogues and formats. No expectations, no stereotypes, no status quo,” – stated press-release.
Stars who attended the show: Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH luxury Grouop and New Guards Group, Carla Bruni, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, Idris and Sabrina Elba, Pharrell Williams and his family. Fashion designers who attended the show: Jonathan Anderson (Loewe), Olivier Rousteing (Balmain), Matthew Williams (Givenchy), Guram Gvasalia (brother of Demna Gvasalia – Balenciaga and Vetements), and Jerry Lorenzo (Fear of God).
Top models who hit the runway this evening: Cindy Crawford and her daughter Kaia, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Amber Valletta, Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Candice Swanepoel and many others.
The list can only grow for tonight’s celebrity runway, honoring late designer’s fashion brand.
