As Demna Gvasalia was getting set to write tomorrow’s fashion news headline with his politically-charged Balenciaga FW17 Paris Fashion Week show, outside on the streets, the French capital’s most chic swarmed, eager to grab a slice of the action.
As we previously posted, the Balenciaga dad cap has assumed a ubiquitous presence at these shows over the past few weeks, but here, flamboyant headwear was all the rage (note the fetching Stüssy beret). Supreme, North Face, Alpha Industries, and Vans were but a few of the streetwear giants on display, while inevitably, Demna’s very own Vetements also featured heavily.
Check out the photos in the gallery above, and then compare it to what went down at Pitti Uomo.
