Of the in-person shows timetabled, early glimpses already promise a spectacle. L’Oréal will stage its fourth runway show after a year’s hiatus. Having previously presented along the Champs-Élysées and on a custom floating catwalk bobbing on the river Seine, this year L’Oréal will occupy the picturesque plaza, Parvis des Droits de l’Homme, in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Similarly, Balmain is designing its second music festival, which will be held at the La Seine Musicale, a historic venue located on an island in the middle of the city’s main river.
Rick Owens, who has formerly filled venue spaces with dry ice and flaming pyres, and even once sent human backpacks down the runway, is sure to make an explosive comeback to the catwalk this season. Owens’ last physical show in Paris was in March of last year, just ten days before the city went into its first lockdown.
