Keep­ing it sur­real

In fan­tas­ti­cal scenes rem­i­nis­cent of Tru­man Capote’s 1966 Black and White Ball, Chris­tian Dior took the sur­re­al­ist theme of artis­tic di­rec­tor Maria Grazia Chi­uri’s cou­ture show ear­lier in the day, and ran with it in an op­u­lent cel­e­bra­tion in the man­i­cured gar­dens of the Musée Rodin. Guests were sup­plied with mono­chrome masks and in­vited on to a gi­ant chess­board as they en­tered, to kick back as only cou­ture pa­trons know how.

Beauty spots

It might have been men’s fash­ion week in Paris, but that didn’t stop the girls muscling in on the fun. Saint Lau­rent hosted a ‘beauty club’ night to kick-start the show sea­son, with Diane Kruger go­ing boy­ish in a hoodie and Pres­ley Ger­ber, son of Cindy Craw­ford, pop­ping in briefly be­fore head­ing off for his beauty sleep ahead of walk­ing var­i­ous men’s cat­walks. Three days later, ar­ti­sanal French fra­grance house By Kil­ian marked its 10th an­niver­sary by en­list­ing David Lynch, master of the twisted mise-en-scene, to de­sign a one-off gold and black venue. By the time the birth­day cake, in the form of a per­fume bot­tle, ap­peared, the scent of scan­dal was well and truly in the air.
