Paris Fashion Week Men’s: 8 Things You Might Have Missed

Men in heels
Forget men in tights. Thom Browne’s spring ’18 collection was all about men in heels. The designer presented his womenswear or should we say transgender debut in the form of a wedding ceremony. And in a clever twist riffing off the couture tradition, the final look was half groom half bride – a suit at the front and a bridal gown to the rear. Complete with train.

Happy 15th birthday Y-3
To mark the 15th anniversary of the Y-3 collaboration between adidas and Yohji Yamamoto, the label launched updated takes on the Y-3 classics with plenty of slip-on sneakers and sock boots complete with logo socks and vertical takes on those three signature stripes.

Fishy going on at Paul Smith
With a plastic fish for a show invitation (we believe it was a tuna), the co-ed Paul Smith show was bound to offer up a good catch. Coral printed boxing boots and slip-ons matched the ready-to-wear fabrics, sporty sandals had zingy colored straps and contrast soles and espadrilles came with a quirky tuna motif.

Marc Jacobs, NBA Stars, Kenneth Cole & More Celebrate NYC Gay Pride

Gay pride weekend festivities in New York City wrapped up the many celebrations throughout the country and around the world that recognize the LGBT community. Many events included parades, parties and shows of unity — along with plenty of opportunities for rainbow-themed fashion.
The NBA made history as the first professional sports league to march in the NYC LGBT pride parade last year, and returned today in the Big Apple with openly gay retired baller Jason Collins leading the float. The NBA veteran had on his Nike Be True pride sneakers alongside the organization’s staff and WNBA members.

“On the subway on my way to meet up with my @NBA & @WNBA family to march in the #NYCPrideMarch! #BeTrue ️‍” Collins tweeted, sharing an image of his festive kicks.
Other pro ballers joined the chorus of support for the LGBT community, including Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard.
“Love seeing my @nba and @wnba family participate in the #NYCPride March! All Love” Irving tweeted. Lillard added: “Love seeing my @NBA and @WNBA family out supporting #NYCPride every year. #Proud.”

The CEO of SAS on Facing Challenges and Supporting Worker Growth

Each day in June, FN is highlighting female forces in the industry as part of our Women in Power series.
Nancy Richardson, CEO of San Antonio Shoemakers, comes to the shoe industry with a diverse business background, providing her with a unique skill set when it comes to confronting business challenges. Among the lessons learned along the way, is the importance of embracing change in order to move the company ahead. Here, Richardson shares some tips on building a successful career and business.
What was the biggest breakthrough moment in your career?
There are always challenges. You lay out a path to a goal, get very intent on it and then roadblocks pop up. You have to take a deep breath and stop. But, once you realize they’re just temporary, or even if they’re permanent, there’s always another path to what you want whether you have to go up, down or around. I worked at SAS from ‘86 to ‘92 running finance and accounting. I think if I’d stayed, I wouldn’t be CEO today. I had to see the world and [returned] with experiences in different industries and environments. After the passing of the company’s last founder I was also a link to the past. It

Vetements Hosts ‘No Show’ in a Multi-Story Car Park

You can always count on Demna Gvasalia to do things differently. He previously hijacked Paris’ rarified couture week to stage guérilla-style shows for his breakout label.
However, while today’s Paris Fashion Week Men’s “event” took place in a multi-story car park like Dries van Noten’s show earlier this week, the Vetements version was actually not a show at all.

Instead it was a #NOSHOW. It constituted an exhibition of photographs taken by Gvasalia in Zurich — shot on a street cast bevy of locals — and featuring all the footwear greats from those big old sneakers to the kitten mules and his signature boots with their Bic lighter heels. They were displayed in bays usually reserved for cars.

And just like all good gallery openings, it segued into a cocktail party and a live performance by emerging Austrian combo Love Hotel Band.
Is it time to call time on the runway show? Only time will tell.

See Melania Trump’s Blush Pink Silk Dress Billowing at U.S. Sec of Treasury’s Wedding

Pretty in pink, Melania Trump cut an ethereal figure on Saturday while making her way to U.S. Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin and Scottish actress Louise Linton’s wedding in Washington, D.C.
For the occasion, the first lady opted to make a romantic fashion statement in a blush gown teamed with nude pumps.
First lady Melania Trump wears a billowing pale pink dress with nude pumps with President Donald Trump for U.S. Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin and Scottish actress Louise Linton’s wedding on June 24.
The floor-length dress incorporated a silk chiffon pleated overlay around the bodice — cropped around the front and longer the back, where the delicate material billowed as she walked. Though the skirt hem covered her footwear, some photos of her arrival showed that she had on a pair of nude pumps with around a 4.5-inch heel.

Kate Upton Flattered Her Figure With This Very Simple Heel & Hemline Style

Even at 5-foot 10-inches tall, wearing a long bodycon dress is no easy task — but Kate Upton knew exactly how to work the look to maximum effect.
For her night out celebrating Svedka’s new Blue Raspberry flavor on Wednesday in Los Angeles, the supermodel arrived in bombshell style wearing a bold blue Roland Mouret dress that cut right above the knee. She wisely coordinated the look with nude footwear that flattered her figure and created the illusion of an extra boost in height.

Upton’s Saint Laurent patent leather shoes featured a pointed-toe profile in a color that seamlessly blended with her own skin tone, creating a leg-lengthening look that complemented the skirt’s hemline.
The shoes had a nearly 4-inch stiletto heel and resembled the luxury label’s Anja pumps, which are available for $595 on Farfetch.com.
