The Paris Men’s Fashion Week has come to an end and this season we have seen shows such as the highly anticipated second collection of Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton, Rick Owens’s tribute to Larry Legaspi, as well as the mention of Vetements to politics and to the Internet.
Needless to say, it was an exciting week with many looks to remember, so we put together a rundown of some of the most spectacular brands of Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
Have a look below and see all the best shows of the Fall/Winter 2019 season.
By marking the first men’s fashion show by Hedi Slimane for CELINE, the Fall/Winter 2019 range took on a traditional rock aesthetic. After making its debut in 2018 with the women’s collection, Slimane’s first menswear collection was highly anticipated as it would mark the first CELINE menswear line. Featuring a palette of soft colors with shades of red, beige and white, Slimane presented leather jackets, bomber jackets and tailored coats on the catwalk, fusing CELINE’s luxurious DNA with the designer’s original aesthetic.
Jonathan Anderson presented a collection that combined Loewe’s luxury aesthetic note with its recognizable design. The models wore layered clothes, presenting everything from the new famous label bags, sunglasses, up to retro-inspired leather hats. In true Loewe fashion, the range included a handful of oversized sweaters, cardigans and sweaters that sported the label’s logo.
Dries Van Noten
Dries Van Noten brought a wide range of coats, blazers and suits to the catwalk. Of course, the stylist focused on his exclusive prints, ranging from tie-dye-inspired graphics to psychedelic patterns in bright, bold colors. Dry always seems to be right when it comes to silhouettes, and this time the show was no exception. Combining luxury with casual wear, the Dries Van Noten FW19 collection is not to be missed.
This season, Rick Owens has experimented with both geometry and color. The designer, who became famous for his use of colors like black, gray and dark green, this time decided to incorporate in his show, even reds and yellows. Experimental shapes and unconventional materials played an important role in this collection that included everything from ball-style jackets to long coats.
“I want to do something abstract, beautiful and elegant, proud and sophisticated, but without losing the advantage of what the brand represents: the young generation, the dark films,” said Simons about the FW19 collection. Focusing heavily on tailored coats, jackets and jackets, the designer showed his talent in designing luxurious silhouettes with highly sharp touches. Models paraded along the catwalk with sporty headpieces consisting of a mix of cool helmets and baseball caps, adding a typical Raf touch to the otherwise elegant collection.
The Autumn / Winter 2019 collection by JW Anderson was a love letter to the plots and prints. Using everything from the sweatshirt to the slinky fringe, Anderson created an appealing range that consisted of mixing and matching and layering. In addition to clothing, he also debuted a series of chic bags and other accessories, adding another element to the already detailed range.
Virgil Abloh sported men’s and women’s clothing in his Fall / Winter 2019 collection, which featured a lot of over-sized silhouettes and bold fringed boots. The designer has merged the luxury with streetwear experimenting with traditional silhouettes, like a new range of sneakers combined with denim jeans and formal blazers. Throughout the collection, Abloh also used his athleisure references, debuting the tops with logo to juxtapose to more elegant pieces.
The second collection of Virgil Abloh for the luxurious fashion house Louis Vuitton brought a wide range of dresses, coats and tailored jackets, all following a minimal color palette that was subsequently accentuated with pops of color and interesting textures. Paying tribute to Michael Jackson, the collection also featured prints inspired by the legendary musician and the show was performed in a set designed to replicate the music video “Thriller” by star Michael Jackson.
For his FW19 collection, Acne Studios designer Jonny Johansson focused on bringing a new perspective.
“Because we come from Stockholm, which is outside the world of fashion, moreover I come from the far north of Sweden, which is even more outside,” the designer told Vogue, explaining why the new collection presented a high range of workwear. As always, the minimalist Scandinavian aesthetic of Acne Studios was present throughout the show.
Demna Gvasalia has always been one of the blatant references and controversial pieces, and this time the designer from Vetements took on politically charged designs inspired by the 21st century and the Internet. As always, the collection featured the classic hooded sweatshirt with a series of cheeky prints like “My parents went to Paris and all I bought was an expensive hooded Vetements sweatshirt”. In addition, the models also came down the catwalk wearing clothes that covered their faces, as well as clothes, jeans and other rather angular pieces.
