This year’s men’s fashion week in Paris, was a sight to behold, bringing timeless designs and stunning new silhouettes. From Hermès to Dior to Louis Vuitton, it was a visual extravaganza of style and substance. All the major houses were present at the show.
Véronique Nichanian’s designs for Hermès menswear were classy and elegant, with an added layer of seductiveness. There were as over 40 creations for the Fall 2022 season, all of them in lambskin, crocodile leather, cashmere and nylon. The signature Hermès-orange, green and crimson were seen on sweaters and jackets from the brand.
Dior, also made a statement with its collection from Kom Jones. Dubbed ‘one-man show’, the collection celebrates the brand’s renowned canons along with the iconic Mizza print. The slouched silhouettes, complemented by layering, reignited the magic of Jones’s trademark styling.
Loewe, didn’t disappoint with its Fall-Winter 2022 collection at the show either. Featuring fluorescent hues along with designs that exude a casual vibe, it was one of the most iconic looks this season.
However, it was Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2022 menswear collection, that turned out to be the highlight of the men’s fashion week in Paris. A nod to late Virgil Abloh’s edgy yet approachable take on design, the show proved to be one of the most inspiring. The collection boasted jewel tones, which were punctuated by satin and velvet. It was a smorgasbord of colour, textures and references and was hugely impressive.
Finally, Rick Owens’s Fall 2022 collection was heavily influenced by ancient references and memorabilia. His silhouettes were utilitarian. Rick drew influence from Egyptian culture and the outerwear included the use of materials such as nylon, fur and leather.
