There’s been much about the marriage of fashion and fine art at the Paris Fashion Week Menswear, the first purely online season in the history of menswear. Fashion's distance from fine art has rarely looked shorter.
H&M is focusing heavily on materials with the announcement of “new fabric technology that helps men stay cool”. It’s also launching a new dress offer next month made from “recycled and sustainably-sourced materials”.
The show's organisers blamed the coronavirus outbreak in China and a date clash with Milano Unica for a decline in visitor numbers at its latest edition, held on 4-6 February, as footfall numbers fell 7%.
