Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Rue de Rivoli, Paris, France. On one of the coldest nights in Paris Fashion Week's history, the fifth annual H&M Studio runway show brought fashion's finest together to enjoy beautiful things while temporarily escaping the arctic winds. Having spent a night at the H&M House – better known as Hôtel National Des Arts et Métiers – guests arrived at the west wing of the world’s most famous museum, The Louvre, for a dinner and full presentation of the hotly anticipated collection.
After removing shoes and slipping into tabis (Japanese ankle socks, that is) the theme of the night became obvious. We had travelled from Paris to a traditional Japanese tatami room, clearly referencing the core inspiration of the collection.
