Lanvin Catwalk Fashion Show Menswear Paris FW2017

The fall collection of Lanvin was themed “Nothing” and had no logos, art, collaboration, decoration, or vintage references (there were even scarfs with the word “Nothing” on them). Instead, Lucas Ossendrijver focused on shape, construction and cut and enhanced everyday pieces such as the checked shirt, parka and chino.

Elevation came through some sartorial tricks: The double lapels of gray plaid or check coats melted away midway down the torso, while knife folds were pressed onto the fronts and back of jackets and into the sides of the sleeves. Armholes were high and shoulders were sharp and built out, while plaid shirts fluttered from beneath jackets, toning down all the fierce tailoring.

Outerwear had an artistic bent, as in a big black cape that looked as if it had been molded from paper mache while a black leather jacket that was inset, Matisse-like, with triangular bits of blue. The plaid on a duffle coat went every which way, as if the pattern had been shattered — and later reassembled. Knits were interesting, too, with many of them truncated at the waist to reveal more plaid shirts. Trousers veered between the slim and the oversized, with chinos pre-wrinkled with big cuffs.
Sometimes the classics are fine just as they are.

Milan Fashion Week Menswear FW2017 RECAP

In Milan designers unfolded their colorful (in terms of models as well as the collection’s color palettes) stories for fall/winter 2017. Vivid, original and specifically youthful collections filled with statement items we can dream of in the months to come. Collections indirectly referring to or hinting at the turbulent times we live in. We can take a Prada-trip down memorylane to the seventies or we can dress like the millennial kids Dolce & Gabbana were addressing with their funky, streetwise show. Which ever style we pick, keeping warm will be the least of our problems once winter 2017 comes knocking. From Fendi and Marni to Prada and Moschino showed you can in fact look cool in something fluffy and furry. Curious to what else Milan presented us with? Here are our Milan Fashion Week Menswear FW2017 Highlights.

Seventies chic
Curduroy and a palette ranging from brown, tan, rust and orange to blood-red and burgundy. Prada’s collection was all about a return to “reality, normality, simplicity” (as an escape from today’s turbulent times). We’re already feeling nostalgic.

Bits ‘n bobs
Textures and colors in the mix at Marni. New creative director Francesco Risso’s debut’s collection about checked pleated pants and duo color fur hats (that will no doubt make countless upcoming editorials).

Slick yet street
Versace’s men were slick, yet more ‘street’ than ever dressed in their red/black plaid bomber jackets, hoodies, sweaters and sneakers. Donatella’s idea of the ‘brotherhood’ we now need more than ever (in these turbulent times).

Anti army
Moschino’s anti army was quite the literal inspiration; a collection filled with army inspired items like the barret, the bullet belt and lots of army green. Yet as a contrast to the camo print models wore fresco printed pieces instead.

Cable knit
At Salvatore Ferragamo Guillaume Meilland made his debut with a wearable classic collection that had just the right amount of playfulness to it. Exquisite tailoring and an on point palette (of grey and burgundy) came through in the cropped jackets, pleated pants and cable knits.

Bright & leopard
While most women might already be getting a little leopard exhausted, men are still getting their shot next year, if it’s up to Silvia Venturini Fendi. Their collection filled with fur, bright color combinations, texts (like YELLOW and TRY) and leopard prints will surely appeal to a young customer. Oh, and it also proved fluffy overcoats can be hot on guys too.

Hyped up
Dolce & Gabbana have officially chosen to go for a hype with every new collection they bring out. Their new work isn’t necessarily about craftsmanship, tailoring and fashion anymore; it’s about standing out, getting likes and going viral. The selfie-savvy generation is their focus customer so he/she gets served. With celebrities walking the runway like D&G princes attented by Insta queens on the front row. Or did you actually want to read anything about the collection?

Rick Owens Catwalk Fashion Show Menswear Paris FW2017

For his fall 2017 collection Rick Owens sent out modern-day nomads, dragging their blankets and belongings around on their backs. Models, their stringy hair pasted to their heads and in disarray, wore nylon puffer pieces. They came in the form of mile-long scarves that dragged across the floor or coats, shawls and ballooning shrugs that resembled reworked sleeping bags.
All the proportions were exaggerated. Coveralls and trousers were as wide as elephant legs, their bottoms pooling over chunky sneakers and shoes with layered soles. Jackets were like voluminous leather sculptures, bulging with zipper pockets and pouches, while coats were made from ragged-edged patches.

Louis Vuitton Catwalk Fashion Show Menswear Paris FW2017

Louis Vuitton collaborated with cult New York skatewear brand Supreme for the fall 2017-collection. It surely will unleash some retail hysteria.
Items from the highly anticipated partnership were the stars of the Vuitton men’s wear show, held in a transparent tent in the Palais-Royal gardens in front of guests including David Beckham, Kate Moss and James Marsden.

Cobranded goods — ranging from a bright red fanny pack to a denim jacquard baseball shirt — peppered the collection, which Kim Jones, men’s artistic director at Vuitton, said was inspired by New York art stars of the early Eighties such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Keith Haring and Andy Warhol.
Oversized coats, long sweaters, sneakers and slouchy pants made for a casual attitude.
Pajama shirts featuring collages of Vuitton advertising images from the Thirties were a reference to Schnabel, while a camouflage jacquard weaving together the Supreme logo and Vuitton’s monogram nodded at Warhol’s self-portrait

Valentino Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear FW2017

It was the first solo men’s Valentino show for Pierpaolo Piccioli after the split from longtime design partner Maria Grazia Chiuri, now creative director of women’s collections at Christian Dior. Piccioli got inspired by Jamie Reid, the English artist best known for his Sex Pistols album cover art and used two short poems of him for the brand. “Beauty is a birthright, reclaim your heritage,” read one. “It seemed to be the end until the next beginning,” said the second.
Those phrases, in Reid’s signature ransom-note style, appeared on everything from an ankle-length gray double cashmere coat to a pink intarsia sweater.

Piccioli did not go down the punk route of safety pins and mohair sweaters. He gave the lineup a collegiate feel by pairing the outfits with sweaters worn over shirts with slim black bow ties. Shrunken suit jackets looked like they had been outgrown, while off-kilter shades like pastel green and pink gave duffel coats and workwear jackets a confident flair.
