Paris Mens Fashion Week SS17
reVOLVER is just back from Mens Fashion Week in Paris - here's the lowdown on the SS17 collections...
Friday was a strange day to be in Paris. The UK had voted to leave the EU only hours before I arrived at Orly airport, and I was grateful that coming from Ibiza, I didn't need to clear immigration with my UK passport!
This presentation in Paris was for the Mens SS17 collections. SS16 you might remember was very black - and although next year will not be quite so dark (on the clothing front at least), there will still be plenty of muted tones, and interesting treatments of dark colours. Contrasting fabrics and the use of seams as design points were also things that stood out.
The trend for oversized garments, especially tops, was prominent. In the past few seasons there has been a focus on longer body lengths with slim cuts, for next season there are lots more billowy shapes. Which is good news for those paella lovers out there!
The undisputed highlight of the Paris shows was Y-3's revelation of a new shoe type, the NOCI 0003 which was available at retail immediately after the catwalk show. The inspiration for the hiking boot style was the "kind of shoe one might wear to explore space on foot".
Only 3000 pairs were produced (we were selected as one of the exclusive retailers) and they will not last!
The NOCI 0003 is available online and in-store now. For everything else, we'll have to wait ;)
