Always visually impressive, the visvim showroom boasted oversized lantern light fixtures that were shipped directly from Japan and made from traditional washi paper. The entire visvim collection was really impressive as well. Lots of new styles and old favourites.

Easily one of my favorite collections from the trip. Junya Watanabe’s runway show featured a remarkable line up of collaborative pieces from Carhartt, Levi’s and outwear made with The North Face.

The pinnacle of leather jackets. Hender Scheme’s natural dyed leather Riders will also be available in black next season.

Paid a visit to our fellow Canadians from MAPLE, wings + horns and Reigning Champ at Man Show Paris. Enjoyed a few beers and some strong banter.

sacai held nothing back this season with both their collection and runway presentation being one of their best to date.

Sometimes its tough to gauge a collection from a runway show as you can’t always get a grasp of how the individual pieces look. Luckily sacai was equally as impressive close up as it was on the runway.
