Pure, or shiny black outfits opened the show as another designer subscribed to the North African theme. Riccardo Tisci used Moroccan tile prints on tops, shirts and trousers, while he repeated a star motif on shorts in strong black and white. The stark palette gave a pure look to white tailoring in cigarette pant proportions while a relaxed eveningwear look ushered in sheeny black suits with db jackets and elasticated sweat-pant style trousers
Sleeveless menswear was given an outing by many designers in Paris and the long length shirts and jackets here followed that theme. Long line layers added momentum to the long line T-shirt which was also popular across the show.
