PEAK PERFORMANCE: The Kenzo men’s wear show got off to a flying start, literally, as athletes from the Parkour 91 group vaulted and backflipped their way through the cavernous Maison du Judo, to the delight of guests including Jean-Paul Goude and DJ Pedro Winter. Unfortunately, the label’s joint creative director, Carol Lim, had to miss the performance following a death in her family. “She is in L.A. with her family for the funeral and will be back very soon in Paris,” her design partner Humberto Leon explained in an e-mail.
