The front rows at Paris Fashion Week: Men’s were awash with the A-list over the weekend (18-20Jan19).
Everyone from new fashion darling Jonah Hill to catwalk legend Naomi Campbell turned out for the menswear shows in the City of Light, with no one letting the riots held by the gilets jaunes (yellow vests) stand in their way.
At the Adidas MakerLab Presents: Here to Create show on Friday (18Jan18), designers Nicholas Daley, Paolina Russo, and Priya Ahluwalia were cheered on by Jonah, David Beckham, and Karlie Kloss.
“I’m definitely interested in young designers,” Jonah told WWD. “I need to know somebody personally and understand them as a person to enjoy their work. That’s when the real connection is made.”
The Wolf of Wall Street actor, dressed in plaid Marni suit over a Dr. Octagon T-shirt and Adidas sneakers, also spoke about his rise to become one of the poster boys for the “scumbro” look – a term describing a scruffy, no-fuss attitude to streetwear and personal grooming.
“I think terms like that are so funny. I would never identify as any sort of term,” he smiled. “Honestly I just don’t care. I wear s**t that I like and that’s it.”
To conclude the show, Adidas collaborator Pharrell Williams appeared at the end to congratulate the designers.
Elsewhere on Friday, Naomi, Kate Moss, and Robert Pattinson stepped out at the Dior presentation.
And on Saturday, Naomi was once again sitting front row, this time for Japanese designer Chitose Abe’s Sacai show.
She was joined by Pusha T, who confessed to being a big fan of Japanese culture: “I love Japan a lot. I’ve been going there for a very long time, since (label) BAPE’s fifth anniversary at least. (BAPE founder) Nigo introduced me to Japan, so it’s always been linked to him. Each trip is a different experience.”
While on Sunday, the likes of Courtney Love, Miles Kane, Virgil Abloh and Natalia Vodianova turned out for Hedi Slimane’s inaugural Celine menswear show.
“It’s an historic moment,” musician Kane told WWD.
