PARIS — For Gianfranco Ferré, Paris is a party. At least that’s the spirit the Italian designer captured on Tuesday evening as he became the latest designer to crash Paris couture week. He did it by showing his spring ready-to-wear collection to a select group of local clients and editors at the Jeu de Paume. "I wanted to pay homage to Paris and my Parisian clients," the designer said. "It’s important that they see the quality of the clothes up close."

The show, which was followed by a sit-down dinner, also helped announce the opening of his new flagship on the luxurious Avenue Montaigne. The 4,000-square-foot shop is the first of a string of new-generation stores Ferré is scheduled to open in the next year. One is slated for Capri this spring, while the existing emporiums in Milan, Cannes, Porto Cervo and New York will be restyled according to the new model over the next year.
