Saint Laurent announced today its withdrawal from this year’s Paris Fashion Week schedule. Instead, the French fashion house is opting to run its own calendar for the remainder of 2020, launching collections on its own terms. The announcement follows the cancellation of both Paris Fashion Week Men’s and Haute Couture shows, which were originally scheduled for the summer prior to the global pandemic.
The change comes as the luxury label’s response to the world’s radically changing situation during these uncertain times. “Saint Laurent has decided to take control of its pace and reshape its schedule,” the brand said. “Now more than ever, the brand will lead its own rhythm, legitimating the value of time and connecting with people globally by getting closer to them in their own space and lives.”
Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021 is still scheduled for its original format in September, despite the recent announcement that London Fashion Week will be entirely digital for the first time ever. Other high-profile fashion events have also been cancelled or postponed this year, including the Met Gala and CFDA Fashion Awards.END
