Chantal Abbott @ Crystal (Paris)
If we had to build our own top-10 of the season, at least for Paris, there would be a safe spot for Chantal Abbott there. No need to have the longest and the heaviest show list, her bookings are showing a much more interesting profile including no less than Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Bernhard Willhelm and Martin Margiela. All among the shows we're always looking carefully for their brilliant (and often bold) castings. Catching our eyes during Issey Miyake, Chantal (5'10) was even more glowing in backstage after the show and it took her only a few seconds to become a new freckly favorite of ours. One thing is sure, this is just the first article on her. More to come. More news, more pics. More kicks.
