Catching up with the SS18 menswear collections – Paris

Hey Guys! Hope everyone is doing well.

 

Today it is time for us to talk about the menswear collections in Paris. Let’s start.

Lanvin

Lanvin was all about layers and layers of clothes. There was a lot going on. The collection was very street-skate meets tailoring. One thing I loved was the jackets. I could just go to the store and buy all of them (probably never going to happen). What is very admirable is that Lucas Ossendrijver has been the creative director for the menswear collections for quite a while – I think about 10 years – but he is always bringing something new and fun.

The show is available here.

 

Yohji Yamamoto

Well, Yohji Yamamoto is one of my favourite designers, so this might be biased a bit, sorry. I loved this new collection. I think it was essentially contemporary him, but the dramatic women paintings were amazing.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton took us to the beach. That is what I concluded of the collection. Beach or even island life, floral print shirts and t-shirts, the small hat usually guys wear at the beach bar with sunglasses. Surfing and enjoying all the bits of life. I loved it.

Alexander McQueen

Now I was thinking a lot about this collection. It was very anti-spring/summer collection actually. The collection had beautiful double breasted jackets, suits, Β and leather jackets. So, this whole concept got me thinking a bit. Can we expect the S/S collections to be just linen shirts with shorts and espadrilles? Of course not, that would be simply stupid and we would just limit ourselves and the boundaries of art. After this chain of thoughts, I re-watched the show and it gave me a whole different perspective.

So the conclusion is, if you don’t like the show or don’t understand it, watch it again and again. Trust me you will get more and more out of it.

See you on Saturday,

The Fashion Eclectic.
