Dior took over Paris’ iconic Place de la Concorde for a menswear show Friday whose theme was none other than the city of Paris itself.

Inside an annex, fashion editors joined a front row including Naomi Campbell to marvel at the heritage house’s spectacular decor. It created a near-life size Parisian bridge, replete with fake birds and fake water lapping underneath via plasma screen, just for the 15-minute collection.

Here are some highlights of the fall-winter 2022 menswear displays.

DIOR’S CITY OF LIGHT

Paris Fashion Week is back from its virus-induced slumber. At least that was what some front-row fashion editors uttered upon seeing Dior’s elaborate reconstruction of the Pont Alexandre III bridge, with its giant three-dimensional gilt-bronze horse statues and staff-holding nymphs that

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, a.k.a. Sylvie of “Emily in Paris,” channeled the Saint-Tropez-beach-dancing, bikini-over-pencil-skirt side of her fictional character at her latest real-life outing.

On Wednesday, Leroy-Beaulieu attended the Ami Fall 2022 show at Paris Fashion Week in a dress that left little up to the imagination. She channeled the subtly-sexy style of her on-screen counterpart — maybe not-so-subtle, considering it was completely transparent. The long-sleeve body-hugging, ankle-grazing sheer dress was a chic, ultra Parisienne front-row moment that not even Sylvie, who oozes meanness, could snub her nose at.

Leroy-Beaulieu swapped a pointed-toe pump for strappy sandals and sported a red manicure (just as any self-respecting French woman would), adding intrigue

Fashion Week Istanbul: A Creative State of Mind | Sponsored Feature

For its latest season, Fashion Week Istanbul returns with a hybrid creative showcase of Turkish talent from October 12 to 17, 2021. A curated experience running between October 13 to 17 mixes the work of Turkey’s artists, from photographers and designers to performance artists and actors, conceptualised across two performance spaces: the public and private.

The multidisciplinary exhibition revolves around the theme Istanbul State of Mind, through which event organisers — Istanbul Apparel Exporters Association, or İHKİB, Turkish Fashion Designers’ Association (MTD) and Istanbul Fashion Academy (IMA) — sought to celebrate the multicultural city and its art scene, united as the world moves into a post-pandemic reality.

The immersive experience engages viewers in performances by artists dressed in Turkish designs, interacting directly with scenes unfolding around them in street settings to private apartments. For those unable to experience the events in-person, the majority of fashion shows within the curation were

Givenchy slammed for noose necklace at Paris fashion week

Well, that’s not the best fashion statement.

Luxury French fashion house Givenchy is being blasted for debuting a noose-style necklace during Paris fashion week.

A model wore the offending piece of jewelry Sunday during the label’s spring/summer 2022 show.

The unfortunate style choice was first called out by the Instagram account Diet Prada.

“You’d think the industry would’ve learned not to put things that resemble nooses around a model’s neck after the whole @Burberry noose hoodie debacle in 2019. This @givenchyofficial necklace that just came down the runway steers dangerously close to that same territory. Really makes you wonder how no one noticed, but alas … history repeats itself,” the account wrote alongside a side-by-side photo of the Givenchy runway model and a Burberry model.

In 2019, Burberry was criticized during London fashion week for a catwalk model wearing a noose embossed on a hoodie.

The noose necklace was featured in Givenchy's Spring/Summer 2022 show.
The noose necklace was
