Yu Fujiwara documents a major Paris menswear season

The photographer took his usual eye for overlooked detail to the streets

Any fashion week is a treasure chest for street style photographers; fashion’s masses line the streets at their most exhibitionist, posing (or pretending not to) before an array of hungry cameras. But what’s more interesting to Yu Fujiwara – documenting for Dazed – is the minutia that normally slips through the cracks.

While Virgil Abloh debuted at Louis Vuitton and Kim Jones looked back to Dior’s beginnings at Paris menswear last month, Fujiwara captured trainers against a backdrop of chalk drawings, clamouring photographers (meta), and bystanders inexplicably wearing sweltering leather. Other shots capture models idling in the French summer sun and Abloh himself, throwing up a relaxed-looking peace sign and surrounded by adoring fans.
