Paris Men’s Fashion Week Update: From Versace’s Flamboyance To Moschino’s Festish Couture
Paris, they say, is the city of love and also one of the big-four fashion places, with the others being New York, London and Milan.
Paris has seen some of the most amazing designers in the world present already from Dolce and Gabbana’s royal outing to Valentino’s refreshing flair.
For this article, we’ll be focusing on Off-White, Moschino, Valentino and Versace.
Off-White by Virgil Abloh
Not to be associated with a traditional conformist, Virgil Abloh takes simple silhouettes and turn them into revolutionary pieces.
The collection has a lot of turtleneck sweaters and leather jackets. A tinge of 70s/80s vibes lurks through the collection which Abloh has learned to deliver impeccably. The attitude in his clothes is refreshing, from the cropped brown jacket with oversized sleeves to the deconstructed blue sweaters.
Abloh pretty much dictates his own style.
For Valentino’s clothes, think Neo in the movie Matrix and then make it fashion. The black and dark navy turtlenecks paired with jackets exuded a serious, don’t-come-close look.
Some of the jackets had cool embroideries on them, but most of the pieces were classic, think leather jackets and shirts. Valentino with this collection is not necessarily trying to be revolutionary.
Moschino by Jeremy Scott
Latex, checks and mostly black Moschino this season is Fetish couture, with deconstructed men’s vests and jackets, the collection is as revolutionary as they come.
This collection had a mix of the men’s fall/winter looks and the women’s pre-fall looks, which most fashion houses tend to do.
The clothes, though, out there is wearable when styled and altered slightly, but that is truly the case, runways are, in a way, fantasy to build on reality on.
Versace prides itself in its flamboyance, as its creative head Donatella Versace always says: “more is more”.
The collection sees the infamous Versace emblem plastered on either the clothes or the accessories, with colours primarily being gold with splashes of blue, yellow and black among others is seen throughout the collection.
Versace stuck tot tested and trusted silhouettes like the suits, vests and leather jackets.
