Pierre Hardy at the "Walk with Pierre Hardy" exhibit in Tokyo.
TOKYO — Just over a year after opening his first boutique in Japan, Pierre Hardy was back in the chic Aoyama area to fete a photo exhibition showcasing works by students from the École cantonale d'art de Lausanne, an art and design university in Switzerland. A similar exhibit was shown in Paris last year, but the Tokyo edition featured new works created for the event.
“It started very genuinely as a workshop with ECAL, and it was not intended to be something else. It was not a project,” Hardy said. “But when I saw the results, it [seemed like] really a pity because the results were so strong and so different from what we are used to seeing in the fashion business. So we offered them to come to Paris and we did a show.”
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
