Health protection measures are once again preventing Paris’s trade shows from being held regularly. WSN’s joint event scheduled in early March has been cancelled, and only a reduced Première Classe show will be staged.
Once, fashion weeks were all about showing clothes for a precise season. Now brands treat fashion weeks as seasonless affairs. Case in point, JW Anderson, who showed a pre-collection for Paris Fashion Week menswear.
The label led by Glenn Martens, who recently took over as creative director at Diesel, is fusing its men's and womenswear into a single collection, which will show in January and June, during Paris Fashion Week Men's.
WSN Développement, the Parisian fashion show’s organiser, has announced that the event's January edition will not take place. Who's Next and Impact will have their own space at the Première Classe show on March 5-7.
