On Friday night, the tables were turned over at the Thalle Pleyel concert hall, and the music artists took their respective seats instead of on stage for Chapter 3 of NIGO’s Kenzo tenure.
Outside, Parisian fans gave a warm welcome, and rappers like Pusha T, Skepta, Tyga and Kodak Black cheered as they swiftly entered with their 1-year-old daughter, Queen Yuri Capri, in their arms. I was raising my voice and cheering. .
Pharrell Williams also arrived with his family, his wife Helen Lasichan and son Rocket and posed for a photocall with rotating arms for an aerial 360-degree video portrait.
“I love Paris. It’s like my home. From music to art to design to fashion, they’ve always welcomed me,” he said.
The next project he shares with City of Light will kick off a sneaker collaboration between Adidas Originals and the artist’s product company Humanrace on Sunday, with the NMD S1 Mahbs model set to be released by Kith.
Pop star Aya Nakamura, recently dubbed the “Queen of French Pop” by the French newspaper Le Monde and currently the most listened-to French-speaking artist in the world on streaming platforms, said as the show was about to begin: , slid into her seat. Her fourth album, titled ‘DNK’ after her surname Danioko, is set to be released on January 27th.
Rather than radical lyrics from these artists, the Fall 2023 Kenzo show was accompanied by Beatles ballads, performed live by the 1966 All-Female String Ensemble Quartet.
For former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” headliner Lisa Rinna, this felt like a couture warm-up… for fear of jinxing the project.
The actress was standing up for ‘everything and anything’ now that her eight-season hit reality show is over. I have,” she said sweetly. “Life is now an open book and I love it.”
Her next move is still up in the air, with Rinna Beauty picking up the pace, but Rinna earlier in the day spent some shopping and shopping with her friend and former co-star Erika Jayne, who was also on the Kenzo show. I found you doing some sightseeing.
After the show, guests gathered in the downstairs foyer to enjoy canapés and cocktails named Bokeh and Poppy after the Maison’s signature flowers were in bloom.
Expectations were high because of the surprise performance announced. Among the many heavy hitters in attendance, it was American rapper Lil Baby who took the stage to the delight of the crowd.
Among them was K-pop star Big Matthew, who revealed that he is a huge fan of the rapper by nodding in gratitude to the lyrics of his diamond-certified hit “Drip Too Hard.” The surprise concert was exactly the kind of moment he expects from fashion week.
“Paris is always a good time,” grinned the Korean-American musician. “There’s so much inspiration, so much creativity all around. It’s a breath of fresh air.”
With Kard’s new album and new solo material in the works, he’s already thinking about what to wear for performances and public appearances. “There are some pieces – I shot some videos – when they come out they will be mine.”
