The dates and times are yet to be confirmed, but on Monday the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode released a list of new additions to the official runway schedule for Paris Men’s Fashion Week in January, with Vetements among the headlining acts.
The maverick fashion label is planning to stage its next coed show — for the fall 2018 season — on Jan. 19 in the French capital. Other names joining the lineup include France’s Nïuku, Germany’s GmbH, Sweden’s Acne Studios and Britain’s Dunhill London, which in June presented the debut collection of its new creative director and Burberry alum, Mark Weston, on its home turf.
His approach may be full-on gender fluid, but Palomo Spain’s Alejandro Gómez Palomo will also join the men’s runway ranks for the fall season. Off-White will return to Paris after showing in Florence in June as a special guest of the 92nd edition of international men’s wear trade show Pitti Uomo.
New highlights on the presentation lineup include Myar, the solo project of Andrea Rosso (who is the son of entrepreneur Renzo Rosso and the creative director of Diesel licenses), as well as the cult Japanese label Takahiromiyashita the Soloist, which earlier in the month will stage a runway show back-to-back with Undercover as fellow guest designers of Pitti Uomo. This will mark Takahiromiyashita the Soloist’s first show outside Japan.
Other brands opting for the presentation format this season include Arthur Avellano, Ambush, Amiri, Editions M. R, Nicolas Andreas Taralis, Sadak, Undercover and Yang Li.
Paris Men’s Fashion Week is scheduled to run from Jan. 17 to 21. The provisional calendar is expected to soon be released.
