Commuun Paris Runway Show F/W ’11

March 13, 2011

By Paige Donner

Commuun is one of the few Designer labels showing in Paris regularly who sport an ethical fashion approach. And like their famous colleague (Stella) their front foot is on design with their inspiration derived from nature, a respect they carry forward into their fashion designs from collection to collection.

When asked backstage what is the one constant in their collections, Iku Furudate and Kaito Hori responded that sourcing organic textiles is one of their trademarks for their collections. This year’s runway shows in Paris saw a lot of sheers, material that Commuun often uses in their collections.

Many of the fashion label’s fans at this year’s runway show in Paris held on March 7th agreed that this year’s collection bears witness to the design duo’s maturation and growth into their world-class label. Some of the textiles they used – all organically sourced – included an inversed velvet. The pops of color in the collection, too, are nature inspired and their name has nothing to do with “common” but rather references the concepts of community, communion and communication.

The NY trained, Tokyo originating design duo of Iku Furudate and Kaito Hori launched their label in 2005 which is also when they first began showing in Paris. In 2007 they won the LVMH and Longchamp ANDAM prizes.
