What We Learned From Paris Men’s Fashion Week 2019: Part 1

The Men’s Fashion Week season continues, as we’ve arrived at the fashion capital of the world – Paris. The longest, the most packed, and arguably the most awaited. With brands like Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Celine, Dior Men, Valentino showing their best creations, this MFW is certainly one that set the standard.

We will begin our report with the four trends that we noticed almost right away. Check the list below.

One’s Fair Shear

Bottom: Loewe, Hermes, Berluti

Being winter appropriate and being in Europe, the shearling is having quite the spotlight this season. Many experiments took it to the next level – with colors, patterns even the volume in a single piece.

Neck and Neck

Bottom: CMMN SWDN, Louis Vuitton, Wooyoungmi

Another seasonal logic applied, but it’s more than just silk scarves or knitted mufflers now. It ranges from the modern alternatives like puffer scarves to the primal faux fur – also the bigger the better.

Big Big Coat

Top: Sean Suen, Fumito Ganryu, Valentino
Bottom: Hed Mayner, Issey Miyake, Louis Vuitton

Oversized outers and bottoms are the obvious trends – thanks to the rise of streetwear. But when applied to elegant winter outerwears, the BBC is definitely an instant style statement.

Apocalypse Now

Top: Sankuanz, Kenzo, Takahiromiyashita
Bottom: Yoshio Kubo, Walter Van Beirendonck, Boris Bidjan Saberi

We don’t know who started this – but these dark futuristic outfits are everywhere at PMFW. Multi layered monotoned high tech materials, combined with a plethora of bio-hazard accessories like straps, boots and masks.
