Kris van Assche’s debut at Berluti during Paris Fashion Week.

It’s been 10 months since Kris Van Assche was appointed creative director of Berluti, departing the storied couturier Dior and setting up shop within a brand long-established not for its garments but, first and foremost, its “exquisite leather” and its handmade shoes. “Luxury takes time. I needed these months to understand Berluti and turn the page,” he reflected backstage. “It’s a totally different know-how: I come from a luxury house, but this is a different kind of luxury.”


Kris van Assche’s TRENDS proposals:

  • Scarlet - Hot Pink combination

  • Patinated leather on clothing ( even on suits)

  • Overcoats will always be … grey

  • Slim and skinny are the new lines on trousers.

  • Ponyskin is the next new thing on jackets and accessories.

Michael Jackson will be the theme for the next Louis Vuitton show

Virgil Abloh has just unveiled the theme for his Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2018-19 show, which will be presented in Paris in January 2019: Michael Jackson.

The American designer has already demonstrated his admiration for pop culture icons through his own-label as seen at the Off-White Spring/Summer 2018 show which presented colorful pieces inspired by the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The graphic themes, a nod to American graffiti artist, Dondi White, seen in Abloh’s Off-White collection the following year also spring to mind. 

January 2019 will see the theme continued as Abloh is to present his second menswear collection for Louis Vuitton in Paris which will pay homage to the King of pop, Michael Jackson. In an interview with Interview magazine, Abloh revealed thatwhen I have Michael singing in the background, it’s a different type of shirt, it’s a different kind of boot, it’s a different fit of pants. Music is key.”  The American designer also revealed other news in announcing that he’d like to design a spaceship someday. Mr. Abloh, you never fail to surprise us…

Editor's Pick: YSL L’Homme Cologne Bleue

Dive into the coolness of the new, fresh and aquatic interpretation of L’Homme by Yves Saint Laurent, L’Homme Cologne Bleue, our beauty editor's favourite!

Christos Theophanous (YSL Beauté Expert) notes "At the opening you feel a cool freshness awakens your senses." An essence that's zingy - with blood orange, grapefruit, mandarin and bergamot that is contrasted with a hint of black pepper and cardamom. "

Calm, controlled and composed, the heart opens with a blend of apple, geranium, thyme and lavender, inviting you in. And then, the Marine Accord, Oceanol, brings the freshness of Bleue. Understated Cedarwood essence rounds out the fragrance, bringing a sense of elegance and sensuality.

Paris Fashion Week Men's:Kim Jones' debut with Dior Homme SS19

Kim Jones made his debut in Paris on Saturday afternoon as artistic director for Dior Men, the rechristened Dior Homme, completing the changing of the guard for the spring/summer 2019 season. In a tribute to Dior and to his own heritage, Jones invited Prince Nikolai of Denmark to start the show.

The British designer mined the Dior archive for inspiration to pay tribute to the man who established the fabled brand in 1946.This aesthetic approach lends itself to a softer, more relaxed Dior Men than we are used to seeing. 

Dior Homme SS19 has streetwear touches and elements but Jones moved away from the huge trend, offering to the audience pure tailoring luxury. “I’ve moved away from that a bit,” he explained. “[That’s] easy modern menswear; this is a lot more elegant and sophisticated and a little bit romantic too, which is what Dior is.”

LOEWE Men's Spring Summer 2019

The Spanish Fashion house has presented its men’s spring/summer 2019 collection designed by Jonathan Anderson.

The collection was presented in the LOEWE headquarters on Place Saint-Sulpice in Paris, where the space was transformed into a naïve playground featuring images from the house’s latest printed publication shot by American art photographer Duane Michals.

LOEWE’s new menswear collection flits across time and space to illicit a boyish study of dressing up – where childhood memories haze with botanical and geometric motifs like sea urchins and stained glass, cowri shells and whelks, bandanas, and mythological lions.

Thom Browne Fall 2018: a statement show to remember

Androgynous looks and grey flannel for women; pants down, heels and puppy heads for men. 

A runway which looked like an art studio and “Lady painters painting portraits of ladies, in grey flannel.”  Models styled with androgynous outfits and with hair inspired from 18th century French aristocracy strolled along the runway, taking up positions for the painters while Madonna's 'Vogue' was the main soundtrack of the show. 

For the second and main part of the show, models walked wearing deconstructed outfits, all in the 'fifty shades of grey' flannel Some remind us men's office clothes, some others school uniform and the hero pieces are definitely statements inspired by the same century. 

Half dresses combined with others, skirts as tops and the opposite were some of the highlights.

And as a conclusion the most powerful statement of all: male models wearing grey dog head masks and heels walked out, all harnessed, followed by Grace Bol, the South Sundanese model holding their leashes and wearing a ball gown.
