UP ALL NIGHT
Paris: Rei Kawakubo shows a youth-driven collection doused with an East London punk attitude engulfing tartan plaids and semi-formal styling, complete with ruffled tuxedo shirts. The ruched trousers and pre-wrinkled fabrics that dominate the collection give off an “out all night partying” lax attitude, while punches of Technicolor cartoon prints suggest late night raves. —Kathleen Tso
