Picky Eating (Paris Menswear Fashion Week ss/14)

28 Jun

People, I’m skipping my morning run for this!

Day 3 of Paris Menswear Fashion Week ss/14 I am noticing that the Parisians designers have traded in the form-fitting skinny silhouettes for a shorter boxy look for next spring/summer. Going through looks from 20+ shows I am not as thrilled as I was during London but I will say all the collections are solid. I just hope we don’t revisit the dreadful bagginess of the 90’s.

Alexander Wang’s presentation is very implicative of current Hip-Hop fashion. Structured, equilateral and lots of leather… in the summertime. I enjoy these looks because they are urban and fashionable. I like to see other aesthetic introduce to encourage more different types of males to play with fashion.

Mesh and floral is used heavily to make Dries Van Noten dark romantic collection come to life. Floating is how I would describe this collection, Van Noten’s cut are pretty much that of spring: relaxed, away from the body and open however, it’s his use of material and prints that give it a luxury easiness.

Void of shoes Aliebellus+’s show is flamboyant and simple at the same time. His last collection was inspired by the sky, this collection is more tidy than the last yet I still see fluidity. The lines, geometric shapes and framed tailoring works in harmony with the colors and airy textiles.

Julien David is a good example or modern commercial clothing. This is what young creative but regular guys are interesting in wearing currently. A touch of vintage with lots art-pop influences and a laid back wear-ability.

3.1 Phillip Lim collection is strong, sexy and pure awesome. Inspired by the ocean I can see myself replicating these looks next summer. Its awesome when you can be a standout without having to put on a lot of clothing while still being simple. That’s what I got from this collection. the shapes are relaxed but precise and the prints are bright and big but not overwhelming. Good to know color-blocking, stripes and floral will still be at the height next year.

anorexic-escapades-Valentino ss14

The duo Maria Garza Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli didn’t stray away from concepts of their last two collections for Valentino. Still have a sophisticated gentlemen appeal with a tough prep school geek chic vibe to each look. The team up with Havaiana help laze the collections. I usually hate flip flops but with the mash-up camo, leather, suits and t-shirt esque tops they are infused perfectly.
