It seemed impossible to see Lucas Bravo’s big blue eyes in a less jaggy version. But so be it. In fact, the languid look is there even now that, having removed Gabriel’s (nice) chef role in Emily in Paris, wore those of a serial killer. It happened for the fashion show Louis Gabriel Nouchi autumn winter 2023 2024 and today everyone is talking about it. The actor opened the LGN Paris Fashion Week Men’s show wearing a baggy black waisted coat buttoned up fully and splattered (fake) blood on his face. On the runway of Garage Amelot, in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, the French designer presented his new collection for next winter inspired by the book American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. And what to say: wow!

“Reflecting Louis Gabriel Nouchi’s lifelong passion for reading, each collection pays homage to a book or writer who imprinted his vision of the world.” So they explain from the maison. And here for the FW 23-24 collection the designer has decided to be inspired by the book American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis, a great classic by the legendary writer dated 1991. Why? “This collection is one reflection on toxic masculinity. The violence that surrounds us is twisted to create beauty, turning horror into strength.”

A hymn to inclusiveness, to go beyond appearances. Just as the writer invites us to do with respect to the character in the book, Patrick Bateman. Twenty-year-old New Yorker who has had success in everything: golden-boy who works on Wall Street, owner of a beautiful apartment, rich, intelligent. And yet, in truth: Patrick is a psychopath, whose main pleasure in life is to cut human bodies with a chainsaw. The collection thus aims to question everything: above all the norms of society, showing different types of male bodies which, it must be said, all exude sensuality.

The LGN FW 2022-23 collection

So how does Patrick Bateman, the protagonist of American Psycho, obsessed with his style, is it still current? «The decisive shoulder line is inspired by the business suits of the 80s. Life is tight. The collection is a variation of tailored jackets, dressing gowns and activewear pieces. All mixed with the comfort and sensuality of loungewear-inspired garments, treated with the same sophistication as eveningwear».

The color palette evokes sensuality and danger: black, white, blood red. With the city banker blue. While the seasonal print of the collection is based on the splatters left by blood on the clothes. Memories of violence, woven into a tone-on-tone black satin jacquard. And the mohair knitwear is inspired by 80s styles. Last but not least, for the first time LGN works with leather in collaboration with Ecco Leather. “The transparent leather inspired by Bateman’s murder coat uses a new tanning technique without chemicals, like parchment.” While the chainsaw and axes are covered in repurposed leather. Defused and harmless, they are worn like designer bags. And what can I say, luckily!
