System magazine invites The xx for a party at Petit Palace12.12.2019
Petit Palace, Paris#fashion
London trio The xx is celebrating the tenth anniversary of their first album this year. To mark the occasion, the group (Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie xx Smith) teamed up once again with Belgian designer Raf Simons to create a collection of ready-to-wear clothing and accessories faithful to their common aesthetic of the now iconic “x”. Announced at the end of November, a preview of the collection can be seen in the latest issue of System magazine whose cover star Yohji Yamamoto was interviewed by Rick Owens. In the midst of a week packed with Christmas parties, System took the opposite approach to the time period with a fashion week party to celebrate the launch of the collection and issue, co-organized with Augustinus Bader at Petit Palace. With a legendary location and a talented trio on DJ duty, it didn’t take much to get the chic fashion crowd moving. Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy, Ellen Von Unwerth, Julie de Libran, Ludovic de Saint Sernin and Dustin Muchuvitz were among the guests of this high-energy evening.
