Paris Fashion Week with Julien Bertic

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Julien Bertic brings us some images from the front of the runway at Haider Ackerman, Zucca, Tsumori Chisato and YSL.

Pilati at YSL
breezed in with a fresh masculine-feminine and dark silhouette, showing short jackets
on short skirts accessorized with some crocco hoods.Back to shy elegence on
a fully casual outfit or sophisiticated slihouette.


Haider Ackerman put his emphasis on superpositions of exquisite flannels a
bermuda-pants and volume with beautiful drapped long dresses. I’m always a fan of Haider who has made a huge success after winning the Swiss Textiles award several seasons ago. The crowd went wild when he took his bow. Bravo Haider.

Chisato was faithfull to her interesting way of playing with volumes and

Zucca had a flashback to the 20’s-30’s in a cotemporary, casual


Thank you Julien Bertic and once I get a memory stick to Sonny I will take you backstage.
