STEAM PUNK REVIVAL: LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and ski resort operator Compagnie des Alpes hope to propel a 150-year-old Parisian leisure park to the future with a 60 million-euro rejuvenation.Located in the French capital’s western greenbelt, the Bois de Boulogne, the park will stay open during the works, LVMH said in a statement Friday. With the help of a team of architects and landscape planners, the pair plans to build an ecological promenade, restructure the park’s digital offering with a new web site, rebuild the mini farm and the install 17 new carousels in a steam punk-inspired ambiance.LVMH plays an active role in urban renewal projects in its home city and has operated the park since 1984. The spot is a popular destination for Parisian parents seeking entertainment for their children, and offers activities like pastry, gardening and street art workshops in addition to amusement park rides.Visitors, which included Malia and Sasha Obama at the start of their father's presidency, have doubled over the past 15 years, reaching annual figures of two million.Flanked by the Fondation Louis Vuitton's airy modern art museum on its southern side, the 44-acre park also includes a riding school, zip-line activities, theaters and a South Korean garden.The infrastructure overhaul is planned to finish in May 2018.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)

It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
