THE WAITING GAME: Paris Fashion Week has added an extra day to its calendar, reflecting the strain on fashion houses as they try to finish producing a video presentation of their collection amid ongoing restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The fall 2021 women’s ready-to-wear collection, which will be displayed from March 1 to 9, will now run until March 10, said Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, Friday. Louis Vuitton, which was originally set to reveal the collection on March 9, has been moved to the next day, without specifying why.
The calendar has proven to be a moving target. Dior, which was originally scheduled for March 4, has moved its shows to March 8, and other brands are still changing their plans.
Olivier Theyskens has postponed the presentation of his collection, initially on March 5, without setting a new date. Mugler will also discontinue appearances on March 3, but later that month.
With few, if any, live shows, fashion houses are taking the time to finish their projects, even if that means giving up their initial timeline slots, which were released earlier this month. Some of the houses will film their displays in runway format, but it is hours, or even days, before the videos are revealed on the federation’s digital platforms.
Although big houses like Chanel, Dior, Vuitton, Givenchy, Hermès, Loewe and Miu Miu have followed the Paris schedule, a number of tentpole brands are out again this season, including Dry’s Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen, and Celine, part of the conglomerate. luxury LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
