PARIS — Virgil Abloh’s “Business Woman” for Spring / Summer 2017 went to work late Thursday night to the tune of “Revenge” by Theophilus London. The song’s hook “See how they run” is a fitting refrain for Abloh who these days is likely only to see critics running toward him singing praise. No matter how Abloh evolves as a ready-to-wear designer, his references are still rooted in the versatility of denim. Pinstripes at the top of this collection communicated business and with Selena Forrest opening the runway show, those stripes were well and truly earned. Selena also closed the show, which in turn fully executed the contract this business woman muse was always meant to ink. Joining Selena on the runway from across the Next network were a quartet of models across the Next network including Saadi, Olivia Jansing, Lina Hoss, and Impy.
