“Paris Fashion Week Men’s 2019”: Check all the trends which were dominating the ramp
Yes, certainly we knew it that, Paris Fashion Week Men’s 2019 was going to leave no stone unturned to give some new and sassy fashion goals with a swing. From street style to elegant and sophisticated outfits in which models were dressed. As expected, the annual celebration of all things fashion features some of the best and boldest outfits to date. Braving the cold weather, attendees showed off their layering prowess with bright patterns and outlandish accessorizing. Just check all the big highlights that went down at the show.
The creative director and brand co-founder Jonny Johansson looked to ‘the outside’ and counter-culture groups for inspiration this season. Chunky knitted jumpers and ponchos came with extra long fringes that almost touch the ground. Tailored jackets in jersey were cut close to the body, with small flowers trapped in see-through buttons.
The silhouette for suiting was lean, the line of trousers crisp – slim through the leg and gently flared at the knee. For evening, jackets were covered in micro-glass hand-beading.
For A/W 2019, the brand presented a range of brimmed beanie-hats, velvet suits and large prints of scenes from the film placed onto hoodies and padded jackets. Shoes were made in collaboration with Dr. Martens and Nike.
The jacket-cum-shirt style is an ideal piece for trans-seasonal dressing but also speaks to the merging of lives. The clashing of formality and frivolity, work and play. It is a style that sits in-between styles. Three button suits in quilted wool flannel felt fresh.
The brand’s artisanal eccentricity and youthful eclecticism was there in the coloured pebble beads, peppered onto knits. Stand out were the roomy houndstooth suiting and the new tuxedo.
Dior focuses much on its founder’s heritage. For A/W 2019 he drew on his time as a gallerist. The collection explored a sense of translation – between art and fashion, the space between masculine and feminine. The present and the past. Couture sangfroid for the street. Nylons were like silks.
The opening felt wool pieces had a sculptural sharpness bellied by their flat textile. Biker jacket buckles and belt loops were added onto formal outerwear. Classic flannel pants were blended with performance leggings. Jackets were half faux fur and half fleece.
