Instead of covering only a few other collections from the mens shows in Paris, I thought I would pick my favorite look from a wider range of labels.
Junya Wantanabe. First and foremost, I really like the complete construction of this jacket, from color to design, it’s done perfectly. The rest of the outfit compliments this garment, from the blue-and-white striped sailor’s shirt, to the white beach pants, driving cap, and oxfords.
Balmain. What I like most about this look is the clean profile it gives off. Truthfully, this is more inspiring for a Fall/Winter collection and not its intended Spring/Summer look. I really love this peacoat–cropped, fitted and simplistic.
Dior Homme. Minimilist design. I love the room given in the upper-leg of the pant, but at the same time it is just as tapered at the bottom as you’d see in a much slimmer substitute. This is how I would like all of my pants to fit. And look at the no-collar shirt, of which I don’t know the appropriate name for..but with the suit, it just looks great. One of my favorite looks right here.
Dries Van Noten. Once again, great fitting pant. I really enjoy the color palate used with an almost identical brown leather for the shoes and bag.
Paul Smith. Everything is right, here. Using brown, navy and black together is very difficult, but works perfectly in this look. The shawl lapel on the jacket (which also has flawless tailoring), the profile given in the black patch-work pant, and the brown boots are simplistic and appropriate. The mustache this guy is rockin is probably the coolest part about this photograph.
Paul Smith. I had to do two from Paul Smith, because there were just too many looks I enjoyed. A double-breasted trench is on the top of my list for fall. Once again, the pants are perfect, the boots have changed to a suede and I want them, and the overall combination of color is subtle and almost monochromatic.
Dunhill. The leather book-bag straps show that he’s probably carrying a pretty cool rucksack on his back, which I definitely approve of. The overall look gives off a sportier feel, with the more casual parka and shoes. I’m diggin the blue and gray combination as well.
Hermés. This model is just awesome. Reminds me of a Lords of Dogtown, California skateboarder. The double-breasted cream suit looks comfortable and completely fitting for a more formal, summer occasion. I just really enjoy the vibe that this entire look gives off.
Raf Simons. I’ve gotta finish this post with a perfectly tailored suit. It’s a beautifully simplistic look, in navy, and is actually an outlier compared to the rest of the collection from Raf. I do love a great fitting suit though.
