Men’s Fashion Week: Paris

In Fashion, Fashion Heat on June 24, 2010 at 5:38 pm

Believe me when I say this is just the beginning. Men’s fashion week is the most underrated, but shouldn’t go unnoticed because it is a designer’s inspiration for their women’s collections that follows suit.

Jean-Paul Gaultier has been taking it to the streets since the start of his career. But you can see the aesthetic in all 59 looks of his spring/summer 2011 collection more than any other time. Here, he’s explosive with the graphic prints and Keffiyeh-like scarves. And he’s taken his collection to the middle east with the Jodhpur pants and oversized pull-over shirts.

At Louis Vuitton, Paul Helbers (the brand’s menswear designer) kept it clean. As per usual. it’s on a completely different route than Marc Jacob’s over-the-top womenswear, but Helbers use of neutral tones are worth noting. The one miss was the translucent button-ups, they were reminiscent of those cheesy, 90s club hoppers women so tried to avoid.
