Marine Serre invites you to her next fashion show, and Virgil Abloh’s final project for Nike and Louis Vuitton goes on display in Brooklyn
YOU’RE INVITED TO MARINE SERRE’S NEXT SHOW
After her last fashion show caused a near-city-wide lockdown, Marine Serre is opening up her AW23 offering to the general public. Fans of the brand will be able to sign up on a first-come, first-serve basis. Taking place on June 25 during the Paris menswear season in an undisclosed open-air venue, the designer said “it is crucial for me to experiment with the boundaries of a fashion show, the priority is to find a way to connect with the audience and our community”.
