Designers went marching in two by two to fete Suzy Menkes’ 20-year career as fashion editor of the International Herald Tribune. A formidable flock of fashion superstars laid down their scissors to attend the bash, held at the Musée Galliera on the opening night of Paris Fashion Week, including Alber Elbaz, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, Yohji Yamamoto, Jean Paul Gaultier and Rick Owens.
The mighty Italian contingent included Miuccia Prada, Donatella Versace, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Carla Fendi, Roberto Cavalli, Rosita Missoni and Riccardo Tisci—who played chaperone to Mariacarla Boscono, clad in a blinding, fluorescent pink Givenchy suit and blowing air kisses. Most of the crowd flew in especially for the event. Rubbing shoulders in the Belgian corner were Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Raf Simons and Kris Van Assche. “I’m not Valentino and I’m not retiring,” announced Menkes categorically to the crowd. A video tribute relayed messages from those who couldn’t make it, such as Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld and Olivier Theyskens, who even styled his languid locks to resemble the fashion doyenne’s trademark pompadour coif.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
