Paris Men’s Fashion Week: Spring 2017

The Men’s fashion season has now past the halfway point, making its way through London, Florence, Milan and recently concluding in Paris. With designers showcasing Spring 2017 collections, major French fashion houses such as Balenciaga, Balmain and Givenchy didn’t fail to emphasize masculinity through their different, but iconic styles.

Demna Gvasalia showcased his debut collection as the new creative director of Balenciaga. The collection featured extreme tailoring, with exaggerated box-like shoulders, which were seen on suit and bomber jackets. The show touched on street style, including plain baseball caps with the house logo and large over the shoulder leather weekender bags, which were presented in different colours.

Olivier Rousteing opted for a more vibrant approach to menswear for the Balmain show. The men’s looks were layered and very vivid. Bomber jackets and tailored suit jackets were presented in bright orange and teal, only to be accompanied by rainbow woven embroidery. The diverse collection was also filled with pale blue denim for both men and woman and khaki coats and jackets, with chained accessories.

Riccardo Tisci presented a warrior like theme for Givenchy’s 65-piece collection. The collection showed masculinity through pin striped tailored suits, which were square at the shoulder. Pieces were detailed with zippered pockets on both the jacket and pants or zippered over the shoulder bags, which were similar in aesthetic. A stand out decorative design in the collection was combat gear, which was camouflaged with images of dollar bills.

The distinctive and specific collections of each fashion house have topped off another great season for menswear. We will be able to see more looks from the designers in September at fashion month.
