Paris Men's Fashion Week: Day one

Yves Saint Laurent opened the Parisian runways with a confirmation of some of Milan’s key looks.

A palette rooted to grey and black was rolled out in a heavily draped and languid style for casualwear.

Wide swinging outerwear, loose trousers and oversized cowl neck knits gave a bohemian feel to the gothic palette. But jackets came in double-breasted versions, underlining the return of the db seen at Pitti Uomo in Florence and on the Milan men’s catwalks. White separates also resurfaced.

Perhaps the key look to emerge from this show though is the long line jacket, coming in a long low sweep adapted form the morning jacket. It added a formal edge to the casually washed fabrics and moved casually-worn tailoring on from its eveningwear detailing – this is a look that can be worn with trousers, on suits or with jeans, either as tailoring or outerwear.

That’s a versatility to enjoy.
