PARIS — Business and pleasure: Paris delivered both in equal measure, according to buyers, who praised the recent round of men’s shows here for combining high-level creativity with greater practicality — like the fact that recent spring seasons have been plagued by heavy rains in many regions.
“Paris is still the best place where creativity and commerce are linked together with a good balance. You can find established brands as well as young and small fashion projects,” said Carla Sozzani, founder and owner of 10 Corso Como, who said her open-to-buy was steady and skewed more toward new and upcoming brands.
