Trends in Paris
The new suit: designers experimented with new silhouettes (long and lean), while deconstructing the traditional suit.
Jumpsuits: Tuxedo hybrids at Givenchy and embellished at Alexis Mabille.
Sleeveless vests: edgy leather pieces at Rick Owens while others came with a deep V-neck.
Flat sandals: mostly sensible Jesus styles, but sometimes broaching on ugly.
Drop-crotch trousers: billowing styles ruled, sitting low on the hips.
Prints: romantic prints appeared at Kenzo (Japanese watercolours), skulls at Comme des Garcons and splattered prints at Dior Homme.
Elegance: sportswear takes on a more sophisticated look at Yves Saint Laurent and Yohji Yamamoto.
Techno fabrics: functional and versatile, often mixed with silk.
