Fashion insiders have been whispering the name Raphael Young to each other for a few seasons now. No wonder—the Seoul-born, Paris-based shoe designer, who worked at Yves Saint Laurent prior to launching his eponymous label two years ago, creates elegant, futuristic footwear that inspires cultlike devotion. French devotees—and lucky international editors—can get their fill when Young’s collection of bags and shoes for Le Tanneur arrives in stores just in time for Paris fashion week. But New York is getting a dose of Young, too: He’s designed a special pair for Frank Tell’s Fall collection. It hits the runway tonight, and he’s giving Style.com a sneak preview.
