I love this guy. Apparently he’s a fashion professor in Japan so I only occasionally see him at the fashion shows in Paris and it’s always a surprise and delight when I do. I happened to see him as he was crossing Rue de Rivoli on this last trip to Paris.
I’ve learned as soon as I see him to shoot immediately.
As it turns out, I found myself sitting next to him later in the day at the Isabel Marant show.
I love when someone has a fashion that’s very noticable from across the room, but as you get closer to that person the small details turn out to be what are even more interesting. The dramataic flare on his pants I thought really looked fresh, new, and totally old school at the same time.
