CHAPTER 1 | FASHION
at YEEZY Season 8 Presentation
Simple, comfortable shapes and puffy sandals ruled the day
继 2015 年的 YEEZY SEASON 5 之后，Kanye West 终于带着自己的时装系列重返巴黎时装周。长达三年的等待，再加上稍早前 Sunday Service 于巴黎 Bouffes du Nord 剧院演出的铺垫，让大家对于 YEEZY SEASON 8 这场大秀的期待值升至顶峰。
Kanye West‘s busy Parisian excursion concluded on March 2 with a surprise YEEZY Season 8 presentation. His hotly-anticipated return to fashion was mostly bereft of covetable sneakers, focusing instead on a selection of no-frills silhouettes.
伴随着尖锐嘈杂的汽车鸣笛声，模特从 Espace Oscar Niemeyer 的建筑中缓缓走出，新一季的设计就此揭开神秘面纱。Kanye 今季选择以略带破栏杆的「不完整」设计概念呈现，以此展现源自街头的随性气质。整个系列依旧主打大地色系，轻松、舒适并兼具层次感的服饰，搭配上造型奇特的拖鞋与户外靴款，或许正是 Kanye 脑海中 YEEZY HOME 居民应有的装扮。
An intentional sense of incompleteness informed the collection, which centered around effortless, comfortable layering pieces like minimalistic woven crop tops, pocket-laden armbands, puffy vests, face-swallowing hoodies and clingy sweatpants. Hems were left raw or ragged, seams were puckered and the garments flopped atop each model, yielding a sense of purposeful dishevelment.

“Very Simple, Very Pure” A/W20 Collection
Romanticism but without any flourishes. Emotions but without any frills.
“The pure pleasure of fashion” was the sentiment behind Nicolas Ghesquière’s Autumn/Winter 2020 offering for Louis Vuitton, which masterfully merged past, present and future. Fusing elements of 18th-century and 1980s fashion, the collection advocated “dressing without protocol”.

“既然我们都生活在这个世界上，难道就不可能创造出全新的东西吗?” Rei Kawakubo以她最近的系列Neo Future做出了解释。
“Is it not impossible to make something completely and utterly new, since we are all living in this world?” Rei Kawakubo explains her latest collection “Neo Future”.
Director Yorgos Lanthimos returns to the animal world with his SS20 campaign for Gucci, enlisting a herd of horses of all sizes to star alongside the cast of models. The trusty steeds trot around Los Angeles, enjoying ostensibly human activities such as going to the car wash, getting stuck in traffic, and jumping in the pool.
Is this the future of fashion? Nothing is out of the realm of possibility when it comes to Creative Director Alessandro Michele and his surreal world. The horse, is a symbol of freedom reflecting the Spring collection, and thus perhaps why they didn’t choose a rat. Let Lanthimos’ images remind you that we share the world with our equine cousins, who don’t need clothes to look fabulous, but do enjoy having their hooves washed and trips to the beach.
The tight store space of Andersson Bell effectively provides a sense of fantasy by deploying dramatic contrasts within the space: between cold and heavy materials or soft and rough textures. The grotesque visual which deviates from the fantasy of universal beauty and the cold, arid masses of metal both serve as Andersson Bell’s tools for expression and a suggestion of the store’s ideal values.

Christian Louboutin L'Exhibition
Christian Louboutin的“红底”是一种文化现象，早在Cardi B于2017年使红底高跟鞋的搜索量激增了217％。现在，在最近的一次新展览-Christian Louboutin L'Exhibition修复了巴黎的Palais de la PorteDorée，庆祝法国制鞋设计师30年的职业生涯及其主题。L'Exhibition展览在巴黎多美斯尼大街293号293大街的Palais de la PorteDoreé上，开放时间为2020年2月26日至2020年7月
Christian Louboutin’s “red bottoms” were a cultural phenomenon long before Cardi B caused a 217 percent spike in searches for scarlet-soled stilettos in 2017. Now, a new exhibition -- Christian Louboutin L’Exhibition -- at the recently-restored Palais de la Porte Dorée in Paris celebrates the French footwear designer’s 30-year career and the themes that have defined it. L’Exhibition is on at Palais de la Porte Doreé, 293 Avenue Daumesnil, Paris 75012, open from 26 February to July 2020.
Ouray was born in Solingen, Germany in 1943 and was born in an air-raid shelter during an air raid. He became an orphan at the age of 15 and then married and had children. But three years later, he gave up everything, went to Amsterdam and joined the occasional art group "the Provos".
He later became a photography consultant for Polaroid, where he came into contact with film and cameras. In the early 1970s, Ulay penetrated the lens into the world of transgender people, transvestites, and tramps. His photographs shook the art world at the time with sharp and private shooting themes and realist style.
In 1976, Ulay met Marina Abramovich, and the two fell in love. In the same year, Ulay also began his new direction in art, creating the legendary performance artwork "Irritation. There is a Criminal Touch to Art". He and Abramovich co-created for twelve years as a couple, and ended in a symbolic way in 1988, completing the performance artwork “The Great Wall Walk“.
To celebrate this theme within Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection and in a nod to pioneers like Sir Ernest Shackleton, who wore Burberry on his historic polar expeditions, space also incorporated penguins that can be brought to life through an augmented reality experience. Accessed via dedicated QR codes, visitors are able to take a screenshot or a video of themselves with the penguins and share on their social platforms.

Clothing Rack also has a great impact on the display, and can highlight the brand personality.
