If in fashion shows the male fashion industry still has a lot to learn from the performances and flashes of his female sister, especially for its idyllic outbid in the presentation of its cruise collections, some men's brands begin to follow suit step and seriously to claim to compete in the matter.

Finished Europe, heading west or east, lands it is true of many commercial stakes. Symbol if necessary, two pieces of fashion-weeks Parisian and Milanese have chosen to parade the same day, June 6, 2019, 10,000 kilometers and 15h time difference!
