With the news of Gucci’s decision to leave Milan for Paris Fashion Week, Belgian designer Raf Simons has also announced plans to show his Spring/Summer 2019 collection in the French capital. Unlike Gucci, which will show in September, Simons’ new collection is to be revealed during Men’s Fashion Week in June.
Simons previously showed in Paris, before moving to the New York Fashion Week schedule shortly after his appointment as Calvin Klein’s chief creative officer. No reasons for the move have been given, with the label saying it is moving on after “three successful seasons” in New York. The show itself is to take place at 9.30PM on June 20.
In other fashion news, LVMH has invested $60 million USD into Lyst.
