Vetements Announced As Guest Member On Couture Calendar
In all matters, everybody knows that it’s always better to be the guest star. “When you’re a guest you can do whatever the fuck you want,” Dominic says. He then goes on to tell me a story about a house party in Richmond, an all-white therapy room and an exploding watermelon. Now, none of these can be promised come July, but a guest star doing whatever the fuck they want can be. A guest in the form of Vetements, who today have been elected as guest members of this year’s couture calendar in an announcement by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture this morning. What exactly this means, or what form it will take, is yet to be seen – but much excitement chez Ten Towers is palpable. They will be join by fellow electees J. Mendel, Yuima Nakazato, Francesco Scognamiglio and Iris Van Herpen, as well as returning guests Aoudi, Guo Pei, Ilja, Julien Fournié, Ralph & Russo, Schiaparelli, Ulyana Sergeenko and Zuhair Murad.
