Day 2:

The second day of the Paris Men’s Fashion week included the showcase of collections from designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Issey Miyake Men, Kolor, Rick Owens, Andrea Crews, Louis Vuitton, Damir Doma, Yohji Yamamoto, Dries Van Noten and Julius among others.

The day began with 3.1 Phillip Lim’s athletic spirited creations on a simplistic plain white runway. Visible were a great amount of check prints, stripes and multiple layering as part of embellishments. The colour combination was majorly dull, including grey, black and white, with a few traces of navy blue, violet pink and dark blue. Besides, the collection was a complete formal wear, not appropriate for casual hangouts, including layered uppers, shabby fitting suits, cut-sleeved long shirts, cardigans accessorised with stoles, jackets, long trench coats all paired with formal pant suits, shorts, and jumpsuits.

Following came in the exuberant Louis Vuitton with his exquisite collection of formal semi-formal wear, obviously accessorised with the brand’s iconic handbags, laptop bags and brief cases for men. The garments comprised of long trench coats, neat shirts, formal buttoned suits, short pants, jumpsuits, v-line sleeveless briefs, jackets and pocket sweatshirts to name a few. Artistically the colour palette was a little vibrant, including velvet shades of brown, metallic pink, olive greens, black white and beige. Speaking of the styles and the embellishments, the designer made use of creative geometric patterns on the shirts which gave an elegant and sophisticated look. Besides, trendy buckle belts, tie-on belts, zippers, pockets with the brand’s sport shoes, listed among others.

Dries Van Noten listed among other highlights of the day, where he showcased a collection reflecting elements of dancer’s rehearsal, performance and backstage wardrobes, in an artistically set up runway. The collection comprised of tee-shirts, robes, tights, funky shirts, shabby long trench coats, and suits to name a few. Overall, the tailoring was loose, prints and ethnic embroideries were used sparingly, giving the stage to rich bottle greens, burgundy, navy and fleshy, neutral tones. However, the footwear were unique, comprising differentiated strapped loafers, in very subtle combinations of brown, black and off white.

Yohji Yamamoto proved to be highlight of the rest of the show, by presenting a collection with a nomadic spirit in an eerie setup on the runway. The creations were a true representation of a Yamamoto man, with garments which were completely unique to the entire evening. Employed were some ethnic prints in earthy and dark colours brown rust, black, safari green, metallic dark blue, grey, mustard and mahogany. Also, head gear was an accessory common to every ensemble, which gave a very hippie impression of the look. Furthermore, showcased were oversized pants, draped robes and ponchus. The wearability of the garments could be defined as very limited meant for rare formal occasions.

Thus, the second day of the Paris Men’s fashion week concluded with a strange surprises and introduction of some new style statements.
