Fashion Beats Football @ PFW
The next chapter of men's fashion weeks marry-go-round came to Paris, when it seemed like half of Europe's male population spotted in football shirts for the Euro 2016 championships. But nearly 50 fashion houses sure did a good job lifting the tone with some shows provoking as much attention, as the most heated games did.
Several general trends ruled the runways: oversized everything, sporty chic and total ignoring of the gender rule: we get it, hard to resist not sending Kendell Jenner, Bella Hadid or Alessandra Ambrosio down the catwalk, right?
If anyone had rided the oversise trend, it was certainly Balenciaga: for the debut menswear collection the fashion house introduced couple-size-bigger suits and coats, with a mild color twist, paired with daring boots.
The best celebration of Lucas Ossendrijver's glorious decade of the storied Parisian house, was the highly anticipated Lanvin show itself.
The waiting was rewarded: for spring 2017 the designer offered exaggerated sleeves, mixed stripes and mismatched proportions in splashes of color against grey-dominating palette. Givenchy’s show was all about camo prints, but Riccardo Tisci did put his own twist on the uniform look with bold patterns.
Finally, Rick Owens presentation lacked his usual signature shock value, but designer didn’t need it: his ‘gender fluid’ collection stood out on its own, screaming his name in every piece.
As always, many new players emerged: Chinese designer Sean Suen among others, made his first Paris appearance with a loungy-feel collection. All in all, men’s fashion of next seasons is confidently striding into layered, andogyny area.
几大趋势左右着秀场：所有时装特大号，运动风，总忽视性别的规则：我们理解这样的风格，很难抗拒Kendell Jenner、Bella Hadid 或者Alessandra Ambrosio的走秀，对吧？
