Top 3 Takeaways Paris Men’s Shows

Wrapped Up

Taking inspiration from clean lines and Japanese origami, shirts, tunics and lightweight coats appeared across the catwalks.  Presented as a modern update through undone styling and relaxed shoulders with elongated and contrasting rolled up arms.

Neutral and continuity colour pieces were seen at Juan J, Issey Miyake and Wooyoungmi creating a sleek, well thought through smart casual, fashion forward aesthetic.

Baked Tones

Baked natural tones such as beige, green and orange are in a more demure tone for the SS18 season, creating a great range of essential colours to wear as a standalone piece or to build upon.

These earthy tones appeared across: duster coats, shorts and tops and were presented as functional, utility style garments that are trend relevant with a purpose.


The classic check pattern is being revived thorough a stylistic update. Comme Des Garcons made a statement in classic check during their show, juxtaposing sequins and other prints along side the classic suiting failsafe.

By combining and clashing prints alongside check and making the print available in various colours and trend led cuts such as: cropped trousers, shirts and oversized jackets and coats, check becomes a revitalised, trendy look.
