Paris Catwalk Fashion Show fw2010: Francisco van Benthum
One of the good things of Dutch designer Francisco van Benthum is that he refuses to give up. He believes in himself and his power as a designer, and that deserves a lot of respect. Especially in these days, where big labels with big money try to blow you away when they can. Francisco presented a collection which showed a more classic side of his signature. His softer, fluid silhouet still exists with a more rounded shoulder for jackets, but he added some British flavor with cropped jackets in a small Higgins-check, slim dinner-jackets and cardigans. He mixed the formal with the casual – and addded also some sportswear. Hopefully he’ll find some clients who appreciate his love for fabrics and design. He deserves it.
