Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 is in full swing in the one of the fashion capitals of the world.
The OnoBello.com Fashion and Style Department is doing Show Reports on some select designers showcasing their latest collection this season.
According to a review by Vogue’s Sarah Mower, excepts from it reads:”There was a big win for women in sports tonight at Off-White. Eight elite athletes gold medal goddesses of our time walked alongside the more familiar stars of fashion, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Everyone’s name was flashed on an electronic leaderboard, with their nationalities beside them, as at a games competition, and the runway was painted like a combination of running track and concrete street. To get a sense of the champions that were there, check out the records of sprinter English Gardner (USA), heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson (U.K.), and high jumper Cecilia Yeung (HK). In the audience were members of the French women’s soccer squad the women’s World Cup will be held in Paris next year. Loads of cheers came from the bleachers as the sports heroines strode by.
It was the presence of these legends and the background of Virgil Abloh’s Off-White collection, called Track and Field, which absolved the designer of the accusation of emitting yet another generic athleisure-for-the-sake-of-it collection into the atmosphere. This one had a firm basis in real sport. “Track and field is where you compete. There’s a foundation to it; it’s not just clothes for clothes’ sake,” said Abloh.”
