The menswear leg of Paris Fashion Week opened with Fall/Winter 2015 collections from several well-known international designers.

Christophe Lemaire, the Parisian fashion talent and former creative head of Hermes and Lacoste, featured an officewear and luxurious outerwear heavy range from his renamed label Lemaire. Replete with draping details, the line included gray double-breasted woollen coats, parkas with gigantic pockets, tailored jackets, cropped pants, black capes, cardigans and vests.

French Fashion designer Julien David brought the 1950s men back on stage with a more sporty spirit combined with some Japanese aesthetics. The range included charcoal gray and black coloured wide loose-fit suit jackets, baggy shorts and white shirts.

Belgian designer and current creative helm of Christian Dior, Raf Simons, displayed the latest men’s fashion instalment from his namesake label. Incorporated with a rebellious spirit, the collection showed flared oversized silhouettes. The featured pieces were slouchy knit pants, white lab coats scribbled with angry slogans, distorted sweater vests, torn hemmed outerwear, long narrow-fit trench coats, and checked wool and tweed jackets.

Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, the joint creative duo of the Italian fashion house Valentino, drew inspiration from the art movements of 21st century for their F/W men’s designs. Enhanced with graphic, abstract and camouflage prints, the 1960s-inspired collection presented felted wool panel coats, geometric patchwork parkas, pleated chambray trousers, crew neck knits, silk tuxedos and bombers with leather patched pockets.

The Colombian designer Haider Ackermann’s new ready-to-wear collection was made using velvet, corduroy, leather and mohair. The standouts included tasselled scarves, long coats, fitted vests, low-waist pants, relaxed shirts, slouchy cashmere sweaters and animal print coats. (PB)
