Wild & Zany Men’s Style From Paris Fashion Week
After Milan, male models and the industry moved their eyes over to Paris for their men’s fashion week. Some of the spring 2012 looks were classic, but I found myself being more intrigued by the pieces that had wild attitude with wicked flair. That being said, I of course had to share the collections which caught my eye the most.
Designer Thom Browne was all about khaki and stripes with heavy accents of fringe and long laces. Many of his looks had some quirky flair, including models who walked down the runway with lampshade type hats on their heads. His collection was cabaret themed – talk about having some bright ideas!
Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci literally went to paradise, as in the bird-of-paradise flower, which is printed practically on every item in his collection. Going for a more botanist feel there are lots of forest green pieces along with other variations of the hue mixed in with the flowers. I’m not sure if I’d call this “prints charming” because it’s a little much for my taste, but I give a (green) thumbs up to the classic fitted suit taking an earthy toned twist.
Going along the lines of a “personal Jesus” theme, designer Bernhard Willhelm presented quite the spectacle. Models strutted down the catwalk layered in quirky prints and plaid labeled with 100%,XXL, and Bye Hater. I suppose if you’re a hipster who has to make a pilgrimage from your place of dwelling to your local coffee shop, then this is collection might be for you.
A true artist and an inventive fashion designer, Walter Van Beirendonck presented pastel formal pieces coupled with tribal gloves that went up the arm. Merging art and fashion tulle creations ended his show on a high note, as tulle literally took over the stage, first as clothing then as creations. Don’t you just love when walking art has matching shoes and pants?
