Balmain and Valentino Will Return to Paris Fashion Week Men's in January

The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode has released the provisional calendar for Paris Fashion Week Men’s, revealing that a total of 74 houses will debut their Fall 2024 collections throughout the six-day showcase. Taking place from January 16 to January 21, Paris Fashion Week Men’s will feature 42 runway shows and 32 presentations.

Most notably, Balmain and Valentino, both of which have not appeared on the men’s calendar since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, will make their grand return to the event — both on January 20 at 6 p.m. CET and 8:30 p.m. CET, respectively. In the years since their last appearance on the schedule, Balmain has shown its menswear collections in a showroom format, and Valentino opted for Milan Fashion Week Men’s in June, after three years of co-ed shows.

Elsewhere on the calendar, LVMH Prize finalist Burç Akyol will be the first designer to show on the calendar, with a runway scheduled for 4:30 p.m. CET on January 16. Pharrell will lift the veil on his third collection for Louis Vuitton at 8 p.m. CET on the same day. Matthew M. Williams will bid farewell to Givenchy on January 1, and the House will reveal a Fall 2024 line crafted by its studio on January 17 at 2:30 p.m. CET.

Other brands appearing on the calendar include Berluti, Acne Studios, Bluemarble, Wales Bonner, Rick Owens, Issey Miyake, Amiri, Dries Van Noten, Dior Homme, Kenzo, Undercover, LOEWE, Kidsuper, Sacai and Rhude, among several others.
