The Hollywood Reporter described the vibe as "a mosh pit of terrifying pushing, screaming, and even some punching." Fashionista added that police officers were shouting instructions in French and "forcefully pushing ticket holders out of the street to allow cars to pass." All this would-be punk rockery went down outside the Paris Fashion Week show for Virgil Abloh's brand, which some have said was unfortunately overshadowed by what were most likely fans trying to sneakily enter the show off Rue Cambon.
As for the scene inside, Bella Hadid opened the show, titled West Village.
At the time of this writing, Abloh had not publicly commented on the riot reports other than to tell Women's Wear Daily backstage that he was "only just learning about it now."
Last month, Abloh dropped the NO TEXT-directed Off-White documentary TEMPERATURE. The 54-minute film gives fans an intimate look at the creative process behind the brand's Spring/Summer 2018 presentations.
