Ed Kavishe is the founder and CEO of Fashion Wire Press, a company for which he photographs the most esteemed designer’s runways every Fashion Week in every city. A true Renaissance man, he is always on the runways — fashion or airport. This lover of Manchester United and life lives by one motton, ““You only live twice, once when you are born, and the second time when you are about to face death.”
This summer, as he journeyed around Europe to scout the hottest runways, he chronicled his looks for Style Syllabus. Here are his 5 looks in 5 days between Milan and Paris.
Valentino: I was at Valentino Haute couture during the couture shows in Paris. At this point, menswear was over, so toned it down a bit with the looks. I decided to go with a Ben Sherman hat and shirt, a pocket square of my own design, a Valentino jacket, Commune Jeans, RetroSuperFuture glasses, and Alessandro Dell’ Acqua shoes.
Lanvin: Here, I was at the Lanvin Menswear show in Paris (one of my favorite shows), and I decided to wear a suit that I had personally designed this year. I paired it with a shirt from Hugo Boss, tie and shades from Paul Smith, Swiss Legend watch, and Cole Haan shoes.
Jil Sander: I wore this to Milan Menswear Fashion Week, and I decided to wear a G Star jacket, DIESEL jeans, a Calvin Klein Shirt with Ben Sherman suspenders paired with a Calvin Kelin bag, Persol sunglasses, a pocket square of my own design, and Puma shoes by Alexander McQueen. Since it was an extremely hot and humid day, I opted for lighter colors.
Louis Vuitton: This was at Paris Fashion Week at one of my favorite shows of the year Louis Vuitton (the others being Prada and Lanvin), and I decided to wear a John Varvatos jacket and vest, DKNY shirt, a bow tie and pocket square of my own design, G Star jeans, John Varvatos shoes, and a Louis Vuitton bag.
Prada: I attended the Prada show in Milan, and the weather was a bit cooler, so I decided to wear a John Varvatos jacket, a Lacoste shirt, Commune jeans, my go-to summer sunglasses from RetroSuperFuture, a pocket square of my own design, all accented with Prada shoes.
