Valentino couture this season went on a diet, losing metres off the silhouette (not kilos off the figure). After being behind a wave of volume in Europe for several seasons, Pierpaolo Piccioli slimmed down his cut.
The panel, which includes the likes of Carine Roitfeld, Elie Saab, Naomi Campbell, Pierpaolo Piccioli, and Yoon Ahn, will assemble in Doha, Qatar to choose five winners from five womenswear categories.
Following the tap dancing at Off-White's morning show, Valentino countered with a performance from singer FKA Twigs at Paris Fashion Week Men's on Wednesday, while Undercover hit the French capital's Cirque d'Hiver.
On Monday, French designer Christophe Josse announced he is cancelling the presentation of his haute couture collection, due to the strikes which have been disrupting transport in the Paris region since early December.
The Paris menswear week is starting on Tuesday in a city still disrupted by strikes. The official calendar features 53 Fall/Winter 2020-21 shows, with another 20 scheduled off-calendar - an unprecedented number.
Fashion brands wanting to know how to stage a convincing presentation should have sent an emissary to Alexander McQueen's event this weekend, which was a salutary lesson in combining art, taste and photography.
The Italian fashion house has appointed Alessio Vannetti to the newly created role of chief brand officer. From 1 March the Gucci alum will oversee the label's brand experience, communication and image strategy.
