Commuun layers it on slick

Following Anthony Vaccarello's decidedly revelatory showing at the same venue, the Cité de la Mode et du Design saw a nod to concealment with Commuun's Spring/Summer 2012 show. Layered with panels of reduced Bauhaus fades then a chirpy bird of paradise print and a line of copper threaded throughout (in zips, fastenings and the occasional tone-on-tone Full Monty), the collection billowed elegantly in the dusk Quai d'Austerlitz breeze and was a pleasing end to day one of Paris Fashion Week from designers Kaito Hori and Iku Furudate.
