According to reports, Saint Laurent is set to leave Paris Fashion Week – where the brand has previously shown beneath the Eiffel Tower – to show in New York instead. Although the news is yet to be confirmed, Anthony Vaccarello is rumored to be showing his next collection for the label on June 6, with some reports suggesting that it will include both menswear and womenswear. So far, officials from Saint Laurent have declined to comment on any potential plans.
The June 6 date fits with plans from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) to add summer and winter fashion weeks later this year. This new schedule will see a New York Fashion Week from June 2 to 6, as well as a New York Fashion Week: Men’s from July 8 to 10 and the main women’s shows between September 5 and 11. The move is partly in response to Alexander Wang‘s decision to move his show from September to June.
