The closing shows in Paris this weekend showed a diverse mix of tailoring, outerwear and knitwear.
Lanvin’s creative director Alber Elbaz and menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver presented an unfinished look with suit sleeves replaced with knitted or nylon arms and unfinished seams. Trousers tucked into military boots gave the collection a more aggressive theme.
Sir Paul Smith’s show saw tailoring in both grey and more dominant blues. Shirts were a mix of feather print patterns, checks and diamantes. Sportswear had an athletic focus with nylon fabrics, zippers and high tops.
Dior Homme ventured more down the casualwear route with a strong outerwear collection including robe style coats. Trousers were kept short with pleats and a dropped crotch for a boyish look and skinny lapels and tiny collars dominated tailoring.
