Paris’ Gain Isn’t Necessarily New York’s Loss
Tim Hamilton is Paris-bound: Not only did the designer debut his womenswear collection in the City of Light last season, but now he’s moving his menswear show there, as well. (When France’s Chambre Syndicale invites you onto its runways, you can’t really decline.) But that doesn’t mean that Hamilton, who keeps his studio on the Lower East Side, is turning his back on New York City entirely. He tells Style.com that he’s planning a cocktail event for New York fashion week, possibly to include a preview of his men’s and women’s looks for Spring 2010. “Well, I can’t forget New York, can I?” he explains. “I thought I would do something at night, maybe show a few looks or do a video installation of some kind.” Obviously, details are still be worked out, but it’s nice to know that Hamilton is keeping the locals in mind.
