After London and Milan, men's fashion hits Parisian runways Wednesday, with some 50 shows planned as more and more European and Asian houses battle to get a slot amid rising interest in this section of the market.
Paris will welcome a flurry of editors and buyers next week as is plays host to men's and haute couture fashion week, with Christian Lacroix returning to the catwalk with a tribute to Elsa Schiaparelli.
Saint Laurent has opened its Parisian flagship at 53 Avenue Montaigne. The space measures 900m² and is decked out in the emblematic monochrome colours of the luxury fashion house, which owned by Kering.
The house of Yves Saint Laurent announced the formation of a joint venture with Al Tayer Insignia, its partner in the Middle East since 2003. A new flagship store in Abu Dhabi is scheduled to open in 2013.
