Paris Men Spring/Summer 2008

Here are some eye candies at John Galliano’s men show. The show looks like Mad Max in khakis.

Raf Simon
My top favourite collection in Paris is Raf Simons’ Spring Summer show. Again Raf Simon played with proportion again and made an excellent job. I love the drawstring jackets and layered shorts. It’s a very backpacker chic (isn’t that an oxymoron?). I’ve never seen tunic looks so masculine and modern before. Just like his Jil Sander’s collection I would buy every single piece if I have tons of money.

Artists are the inspirations for Stefano Pilati’s YSL men’s collection for this season. Shirt, pants and shoes splattered with paint and old sweatshirt were the highlights of the show. I like this collection because it reminds me of what I look and my painter friends when working.

Yohji Yamamoto
I love how utilitarian Yamamoto’s suits are. Again it’s rock & roll inspired – Bob Dylan to be exact.

Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton collection was called “Moon Beach,” a reference to lunar tones as well as the sea-haze images of Jacques Henri Lartigue taken at Biarritz in the 1920s. Techno fabrics, must have accessories, Louis Vuitton really targeted the young rich jet sets for this season.

It’s all about wash silks and pajama pants for Lanvin this season.

Junya Watanabe

For Watanabe this season it’s all about Latin relaxed clothing. The suits were washed, wrinkled and shrunken and some are made from recycled coffee bean sacks.

Dior Homme
The much awaited collection Kris Van Assche for Dior Hommes was a disappointment. Gone are the innovative, edgy and modern spirits that Hedi Slimane gave to the house. The collection is a little bit confusing; there are voluminous shirt with deep, wide arms and pants with button flies and one pleat-front pant leg joined to a straighter trouser leg.
