Bidding adieu from the Spring/Summer 2024 runways at the recently wrapped Paris Men’s Fashion Week, SAINT International supermodels Tami Williams and Kai Newman kept pace with their overseas male counterparts at Koché, Wales Bonner, AMI, Officine Générale and Rhude.
Fresh from her assignment of the unveiling of Louis Vuitton’s High Jewellery collection titled ‘Deep Time’ in Greece, Newman opened her season for critically adored English-Jamaican designer Grace Wales Bonner’s co-ed collection titled ‘Marathon’ that was held last Tuesday in the courtyard of the Monnaie de Paris.
She strutted her stuff the following day for designer Alexandre Mattiussi’s AMI collection at the Paris Tennis Club in Look 25, a tailored leather ensemble.
Meanwhile, Williams who jetted in from her Big Apple base, having recently shot the Resort 2024 lookbook for Australian designer Nicky Zimmermann in Pennsylvania, first sashayed for Rhuigi Villaseñor’s Rhude collection titled, ‘A Dream Within A Dream’ that the label’s creative director hosted in a garden adjoining Parc Monceau.
Next up, Williams rocked two separate ensembles — Looks 12 and 33 — for Christelle Kocher’s Koche collection. And later that day, appeared for Officine Générale’s creative director Pierre Mahéo’s collection titled ‘Optimal Simplicity’.
Celebrating his models’ latest catwalk mileage, SAINT chief executive officer Deiwght Peters reflected on the providence of their bookings.
“Tami made the cut for Koche, a label she first walked for in 2015 as a teenager when designer Christelle Kocher, who is also the artistic director for Chanel’s Maison Lemarié, was just launching her own line,” Peters explained.
“As for Kai, she continued the long-running Jamaican connection to Wales Bonner, as she was directly booked by casting director Anita Bitton for the show,” Peters added.
The biannual Paris Men’s Fashion Week, which ran from June 20 to 25, featured 44 fashion shows and 39 presentations that revealed the wardrobe aesthetic designers crafted for their Spring/Summer 2024 collections.
