PARIS — Balenciaga this week unveils its first freestanding men’s boutique, a 650-square-foot unit on the Left Bank here with a graphic and otherworldly decor meant to evoke a submarine.
Designer Nicolas Ghesquière once again collaborated with French artist Dominique-Gonzalez Foerster on the unit, an illuminated gangwaylike staircase leading shoppers up to a showcase for ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes, sunglasses and jewelry.
Steve Aoki held a presentation, a runway show and outdoor concert for his men's line Dim Mak. Here's a look from his spring 2018 collection, which was titled "Paradise Found." #wwdfashion #wwdmens (📷: George Chinsee)
"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
