Konrad Parol‘s Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection LES MERCENAIRES is the next rebeliant uncover of the designer. Konrad reinterpreted in a more contemporary way the subject of rebels and outsiders, presented in collections for several seasons. The starting point for designing the collection was a romantic rebel fighting for a just cause. Konrad Parol proposes a figure that is rough and geometric. It is dominated by architectural forms and the asceticism of the line. The seemingly drab colors have been broken by strong and orange accents. What characterize Parol’s style is a form and great quality; the clothes were made of high quality fabrics and materials: cotton, leather and wool. The whole perfectly harmonised with the industrial space of factory where the premiere took place and touchy sounds composed by PLEQ.
Konrad Parol’s collection, PLEQ’s music and the interior of factory, worked for the third time.

“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
