Paris Men's Fashion Week: The Chosen Hommes

Men’s fashion month drew to a close in Paris last week, confirming the big trends.

  • Must buy bomber jacket

    If there’s one item that has stood out this season it is the bomber jacket, with brands at Pitti Uomo in Florence and shows in London, Milan and Paris all reworking the classic casual item. Luxe fabrications like suede or leather, embroidery, embellishment and printed or patterned panels were the main updates confirmed in Paris.

  • Fabric favourite Denim

    The biggest fabric trend for the season is the return of denim, confirmed again in Paris. As well as denim trousers and western-style jean jackets, the fabric was used across all sectors including smart suits, shirts and jackets.

  • Trend to watch: New db

    Milan’s catwalks were full of classic double-breasted jackets and traditional blazers, but a handful of designers moved the concept in a fresh direction in Paris. An exaggeratedly small 2db overlap created a sharper, modern shape, while a toggle fastening or a slightly eastern-inspired wrap detail added new interest.

  • Focus on colour

    A wave of colour has washed over the spring 15 season, and the Paris catwalks - renowned for a more directional approach - served up an even brighter palette. Peppy shades of yellow, orange, red, pink and blue are bold choices, but the trend can be bought into in simple blocks on seasonable staples.

Givenchy

  • Key category: Summer outerwear

    As the spring 15 collections will drop into stores around January, savvy designers focused on transitional pieces with an emphasis on light and unlined outerwear. The Parisian catwalks concentrated on minimalist mac styles, although summery parkas and anoraks were also spotted.

Valentino

  • Print and pattern florals

    As part of the season’s bolder menswear style, many designers pushed print and pattern. Florals bloomed everywhere from London Collections: Men to Pitti Uomo. The likes of Paul Smith, Givenchy and Dries Van Noten channelled the trend in Paris.
