From Off-White to Hermès, the men’s edition of Paris Fashion Week sure delivered, and after wrapping up a packed schedule of world-class runways this week, its only a matter of time before we can cop the epic threads of Fall/Winter 2019. Amongst the fashion we saw the reinvention of the chunky sneaker, new-age silhouettes, and once again, sportswear received a tailored twist.
The designer offerings were endless and so too were the looks. To end fashion week on a high, ICON Street Editor Roberto Malizia rounded up the 10 best looks from on the ground at PFW Men’s.
Long coats are on the menu for next season and even better, in leather. The style is easy to play over tailoring or draped over sportswear for a casual look.
The Dad suit is back and has never looked so good. With the addition of a wide-leg, deconstructed blazer and subtle colour contrasts, tailoring meets a strong streetwear aesthetic for Off-White.
Collaborating with Undercover for an unusual Fall/Winter 2019, the epic pairing delivered loud prints and modern outerwear for a very edgy collection.
Once again, Undercover keeps pushing the boundaries of streetwear. Sticking to a very clear theme in this collection, I’m curious to see how consumers interpret the avant garde approach that included the addition of masks and feathers.
Hailing from New York, Thom Browne is changing the course of history not only for his own fashion house but the menswear landscape, globally. This is taking tailoring and reinventing a whole new silhouette.
Proving to be strong inspiration for Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2019 acted as a tribute to Michael Jackson, the influence he had on the world and the cultural revolution he had begun. Unifying gender, age and heritage, Abloh took design cues from some of the artist’s most iconic looks to form the collection.
Kris van Assche and his debut collection with Berluti brings a tough twist and biker styling to modern tailoring. In my opinion the chocolate leather shirt should be a must in everyone’s wardrobe.
Once again Dior nails it’s collection, this time combining tailoring with technical styling. Filing out on a conveyor belt, who would have thought suiting and construction-wear could blend so seamlessly.
Adding a Japanese twist to French design, Pigalle lends a futuristic approach to classic silhouettes with flashy colours and metallic sheens.
Lastly, Kenzo Fall/Winter 2019 saw Peruvian artist Pablo Amaringo incorporate his vivid designs to the collection. Chunky sneakers were paired with full tracksuits for impactful looks.
