Yu Fujiwara shares his shots from Paris
After New York, London, and Milan, fashion month ended on a high. From Hedi Slimane’s debut at Celine and Jane Birkin's Gucci performance, to Balenciaga’s LED-panelled tunnel courtesy of artist Jon Rafman, Louis Vuitton’s gender-blurring offering and the spectacle that is the Japanese trio – Comme Des Garçons, Junya Watanabe and Noir Kei Ninomiya – Paris really was a grand finale.
But not so far away from the glam of the shows, as always it was the more understated scenes that attracted Yu Fujiwara’s keen eye. The photographer, who has an alternative approach to street fashion, prefers to document the moments when the magic of fashion week meets the city’s everyday life.
In Paris this season, Fujiwara captured Tilda Swinton, Michele Lamy and Virgil Abloh dashing between shows, Anna Dello Russo smiling at the camera through a decorative frieze, plus piles of garbage, skater boys, never ending queues, and even some baguettes on a motorbike – typical Paris.
