PARIS, France — Julien David's journey within a sub-tropical Japanese summer — part jungle, part concrete jungle — included both men and women on the catwalk as part of the creative vision. It worked well, delivering the message: strong designs that are user-friendly in their adaptability but also quite bold visually. The best pieces were the punky t-shirts with chest straps and the giant check coats, but, overall, the collection looked a bit chaotic, like too many things were thrown into the mix. The heavy "urban" styling certainly did not help. David has a point of view, which sits at the crossing of French chic and Japanese experimentalism. He now needs better editing, and a cut on show tricks.
