Riot Occurs Outside of Off White at Paris Fashion Week

Kanye West collaborator Virgil Abloh showed his Off White collection at Paris Fashion week this Thursday night to a riotous crowd that was causing a crush outside the building’s entrance. WWD reports that editors sitting front row were trading horror stories about the commotion outside, including Robin Givhan being hit in the face. Givhan herself reports, “The narrow block of Rue Cambon was filled with a mob of fans, some of them pressing towards the narrow entrance to the show, others trapped in a scrum around a black sedan that had somehow gotten itself wedged amidst the throng.” Guests of the show literally had to fight their way into the building and at lest one person fainted, according to police. Inside, the collection featured rococo flourishes like brocade bomber jackets and swimsuits with sheer maxi skirts. Abloh is a talented designer but we’re not quite sure the collection was worthy of the commotion that occurred outside the show. (WWD/Washington Post)
