The fashion calendar shakeup news continues: WWD reported this morning that Givenchy, who just hired Chloé’s Clare Waight Keller, will not host a runway presentation during the men’s collections in Paris next month. Instead, the Spring 2018 menswear collection—designed in-house—will be shown to buyers at the brand’s Paris showroom starting June 27. As reported, Keller will make her highly anticipated women’s ready-to-wear debut in October. And, unlike Riccardo Tisci, who typically showed couture alongside men’s, she’ll present her first couture collection for the house next January.
The trade also reported that Moschino is the latest house to drink the West Coast Kool-Aid, announcing that it’ll present its Spring 2018 menswear collection in L.A. on June 8. What’s more, it’ll show Resort 2018 alongside it, which is not an entirely new move—if you’ll recall, Moschino presented a coed runway show in L.A. last June as well, a collection Jeremy Scott told us was “a love letter to Los Angeles.” Between Moschino and now Dior, does this mean houses are ditching Europe for sunnier pastures?
