Fashion editors and retailers staying at the Hôtel Ritz for Paris Men’s Fashion Week will find up-and-coming label Bespoken camped out in the famed Ritz Bar from today until Saturday. The label, presenting its spring collection, is a collaboration between two groups of brothers: James, Sam and Liam Fayed, and Carlos and Paulo Goncalves.
The locale of the presentation isn’t an accident. The Fayed brothers are the sons of Ali Al-Fayed, who owns the Hôtel Ritz with his older brother, Mohamed Al-Fayed. The elder Al-Fayed siblings also control the Harrods department store, Harrods Aviation and the soccer club, among other businesses in Great Britain.
