Paris Valtadoros: Lost in his Typhoon
Name-evident but not proven in practice, “Typhoon” collection by Paris Valtadoros had to do with turbulence, intensity and passion. I wasn’t lost in some kind of colorful whirlpool but drown in unreasonably shiny fabrics, despite the fact that I could easily float into a pool of very interesting...
