Jeanne Friot: gender neutral and sustainable fashion

Jeanne Friot, a young French designer, advocates for a gender-neutral wardrobe but refuses to equate her wardrobe with a sexual preference. “The romantic encounter of a garment, a color, an energy has nothing to do with the choice of a male outfit,” this designer, who is part of a neo-peace and love movement, gives to a woman less than a matter of peace as a matter of being in the world of fashion and the defense of values, certainly driven by the queer community: “To love who you want, when you want, how you want”.

For its spring-summer 2023 collection, it offers dresses and skirts “for everyone”, hourglass suits, tailored and derived from the famous new Dior look. Love is Love is about partying, dancing, through a colorful pop universe, all made with 90 percent fabrics from Nona Source, an online platform for the resale of exceptional materials, part of the LVMH Group. The parts are numbered because once the roll of fabric is used up, they will no longer be made. Her work, inspired by Martin Margiela, Sonia Rykiel or Polly Maggoo, revolves around craftsmanship, embroidery and jeweled clothing.

The third collection by Jeanne Friot, on display at Sphère from June 22nd to 26th, 2022 and presented at the Palais de Tokyo on Wednesday June 22nd from 5pm to 8pm, is an opportunity to discover the one that makes her Lines at Balenciaga and in as fashion editor for Vogue Italia and Les Inrocks.

Jeanne Friot is a graduate of the Duperré School and the French Institute of Fashion.

Steven Passaro: Men’s fashion between Savile Row, 3D technology and a therapeutic approach

“Are you living fully?”. In his spring-summer 2023 collection, Steven Passaro, a young French designer (as his name doesn’t necessarily suggest), explores the terrain of suppressed emotions and the way to overcome them. Describing himself as “hypersensitive” and having to deal with it, he organized a design thinking workshop with his team and worked on fear, sadness, anger and joy. Four feelings interpreted through four strong colors: red and black for anger, white, blue and midnight blue for sadness, black, denim and molded leather for fear, lemon yellow jersey and pink-green mesh to express joy.

An entire program exhibited at Sphère and unveiled on Friday, June 24, 2022 at the Palais de Tokyo during a parade/performance with two dancers ready to “break down barriers to liberate the male body”.

Steven Passaro exhibited at the Tranoï Hommes show in January 2022. Its integration into the Sphère showroom of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode will allow it to express again the wide range of its universe: the construction of clothing and the codes “tailor”, from his internship at Dior as visual merchandisers at Savile Row boutiques; An artisanal approach, like “Martin Margiela in his early days”, now reinforced by 3D virtual prototyping technology that allows him to create and visualize his patterns on an avatar.

Steven Passaro studied set design at the Duperré School in Paris and then decided to focus on menswear by studying at the London College of Fashion. In 2019 he founded his eponymous brand.
