Alban Adam

Alban AdamI think blood red summer outfits are the big things from the latest menswear catwalk shows in Paris, along with Olivier Borde Garde-Robe’s patchwork denim shorts. Then there is Gosha Rubchinsky, a new underground sensation Russian menswear designer inspired by the his country’s youth movement. For a bit of melody there is french band Dernière Volonté, a cold electronic pop group with powerful and catchy sound.

For girls craving new style out there, there is the newly launched label of womenswear from my lovely wife Lotta Volkova who now designs for women after stopping her cult menswear label Lotta Skeletrix—it’s exclusively at Maria Luisa Paris.

For the pleasure of the eyes, the Erwin Olaf exhibition at the Dutch Cultural Center of Paris is the one not to miss. Also Fumiko Imano’s new self-published photography book of her strange twin pictures and Austrian Manfred Unger’s photographic fashion pilgrim featured on my blog, Adam’s View.

And to finish, a good drink is always welcome, so La Feline, a rockabilly bar in Menilmontant is the place to go
for its mixed crowd and true rock attitude.
