Off-White opened the second day of Paris Fashion Week with a controversial show. The subject of the debate wasn’t the clothes but the end of the presentation. Rewind. The set was a huge stage mounted inside the Carreau du Temple made of plywood: people were sitting all around a big flower bed with musk and white carnations. It began and, without any shiver, ended: utilitarian urban sportswear,...

In a lot of ways, Pitti Uomo has eclipsed Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week.  This is due, in large part, to the fair and its organizers’ ability to purvey a strong identity year after year, achieved through statement events (some projects that shine more than others, but nevermind) and a clear vision and point of view.  Milan, spearheaded by Camera Moda has dimmed, mired by a format that is no longer...

This was also at about the same time we laughably didn’t think men were too interested in clothes or fashion.
