Ready-to-wear Spring Summer 2013

Fashion presents Paris’ summer 2013 ready to wear collection. In the beginning of fashion week, it’s young designers who are usually put on display.

Fashion presents Paris’ summer 2013 ready to wear collection. In the beginning of fashion week, it’s young designers who are usually put on display. They are independent and don’t have the necessary budget to buy ad space in magazines, yet they throw caution to the wind proposing new ways to dress.
Karim Bonnet runs his brand “Impasse de la Defense” with the relaxed air of an artist whose work reigns supreme over the money it creates. His style? refined, just like his speech.
Karim Bonnet found inspiration in “La Documenta” a contemporary art exhibit on display at Cassel in Germany. Art remains a key source of inspiration for fashion designers. For Jean Paul Lespagnard, it comes from the street. He imagined a voyage: placing outlandish characters from the Belgian Binche Carnival in Africa. It’s a twist on deconstruction -reconstruction.
Subtle simplicity, complex sobriety, that’a also the modus operandi of Alice Le Moine. Her work process is slow... She knits.
She combines and mixes them, working directly on the body. It’s instinctive. Like automatic writing. The texture dictates the shape. Her pieces are created during production, but are knitted piece by piece, by women. Making each one unique.
But without stress. without panic. The man in the hat is Brooke Taylor, of the designing duo Aganovich. He’s on hand at the runway’s entrance.
Like the “knitter” Alice Le Moine and Nana Aganovich, Brooke Taylor is also part of the “Designers Apartment”. Created by the French Federation of Fashion Design the group encourages meetings with future clients, producers, and financiers. Oh the things one does in the name of fashion.
Now that the show is over it’s back to square one. Time to once again seduce, banks, suppliers, top international fashion stores and the press.
