Paris Fashion Week Men’s and Haute Couture preview calendar for Summer 2024

Paris Fashion Week unveils its provisional calendar for Men's Spring/Summer 2025 and Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2024, featuring established houses, exciting newcomers and a slight date shift due to the Olympics.
April 27, 2024

The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM) has unveiled the preliminary calendars for the upcoming Paris Fashion Week, featuring both menswear and haute couture shows. Due to the preparations for the Olympic Games, these events will take place earlier than usual.

The PFW Men’s schedule, which runs from June 18th-23rd, will showcase the Spring/Summer 2025 collections of 72 menswear labels. One of the most eagerly anticipated moments will be Dries Van Noten’s final collection as creative director of his eponymous house, scheduled for 8:30 p.m. on June 22nd. Cornerstone brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dior Homme and Junya Watanabe remain on the calendar, while Valentino and Paul Smith will be absent this season. Instead, Smith will show his collection at Pitti Uomo in Florence on June 11th. Valentino appointed Alessandro Michele as Creative director in March, and his first collection for Spring/Summer 2025 is expected to be shown at Womenswear Fashion Week in September. Also absent are Givenchy and GmbH.

After the men’s shows, the spotlight shifts to Haute Couture Week. From June 24th to 27th, 30 couture houses will present their Fall/Winter 2024 collections, starting with Schiaparelli at its usual 10 a.m. slot on June 24th. The date shift was made to avoid a clash with the Olympics. The couture schedule features the return of Thom Browne for his second Paris couture show at 5 p.m. on June 24th and the addition of Charles de Vilmorin at 3:30 p.m. on June 25th. Fashion house regulars Dior and Chanel will maintain their usual slots alongside labels such as Giorgio Armani Privé and Balenciaga. Dior will show at 2:30 p.m. on June 24th, and Chanel will stage two shows on the morning of June 25th. Giorgio Armani Privé will also show at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on the same day.

Balenciaga will show its annual couture at noon on June 26th, the same day as the 6:30 p.m. unveiling of Nicolas Di Felice’s collection for Jean Paul Gaultier. Fendi will show at 2:30 p.m. on June 27th.

While some established names are missing from the couture calendar, such as Dutch couturier Ronald van der Kemp, Julien Fournié and Alexandre Vauthier, there are exciting additions. Iranian-Swedish designer Bahareh Ardakani and her label ArdAzAei will close Couture Week on June 27th at 6 p.m., marking her debut as a guest member of the Couture Federation.

There will also be a dash of ready-to-wear that day, with Patou’s Spring/Summer 2025 show at 5 pm. While high jewelry presentations typically accompany couture shows, details of the participating Place Vendôme houses will be announced in mid-May.
