Perhaps one of the highly anticipated shows by far at Paris Men’s Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 was the Louis Vuitton show which showcased the work of Louis Vuitton debut designer Virgil Abloh. While the collection as expected was inspired, cohesive and very dissimilar to what Louis Vuitton customers are used to, it did wow the audience for the most part leaving a bitter sweet sentiment on many present. Given the shift of style aesthetic this scribe found an interesting cross-road between classic and artsy which added a new flavour to fashion from the brand.
The mere mention of Rick Owens and the first thing that comes to mind is breaking the rules. Hence the show that had everything from drama, deconstructed silhouettes, exaggerated elements, architectural shapes, all moved in unison with the aesthetics of the man himself. The styling and attitude of the models, the raw grunge feels and minimalist approach made this collection one of those that moved into a league of its own.
Glenn Martens of the Parisian brand Y Project showed range and diversity through a collection that was inspired, playful and uplifting. From tailored pieces to unique interpretations of blazer jackets and trench coats, the use of a striking palette having strong neutrals, bright hues of energizing yellow, warm orange and royal purple and blue. Speaking of blue, the eye-catching inclusion of denim in powder blue and indigo adds further energy and life to a collection that is young and carefree.
On a palette of fun, youthful colours, dominated by shades of blue, a dash of yellow, white, black and orange, Off-White designer Virgil Abloh showed a multi-dimensional look at the many ways to wear denim, adding visual interest with distressed denim, textures, knits, fleece and parachute that gels well with the quirky elements of animation, oversized silhouettes, camouflage and tie ‘n’ dye all to show-off his cool range of footwear that is a jogger and lace-up that have a chunky, army-esque appeal that is sure to liven up spring and summer of 2019.
From the abstract to the outlandish, the vibrant colours to the creative techniques of layering. Hiromichi Ochiai for Facetasm showed a collection that was every bit as eccentric as it was artistically reflective of current day global village. Including an interesting mix of different art-forms, silhouettes, styles and sentiments that evoke curiosity while hinging on folklore and the beauty of story-telling. Here’s just how Facetasm fascinated us at Paris Men’s Fashion Week for 2019.
Designers Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund of Cmmn Swdn made opening night to Paris Men's Fashion Week every bit as memorable as the impact, energy and social awareness the collection had on the audience. Against a background of what looked like the landfills or somewhere in between, where many garments end up as waste and staying true to the hybrid element the brand is known for, the pieces shown couldn't have been any more hybrid than it was. An interesting mix of youthfulness and subculture, a mix of old-world aesthetics and contemporary, tipping the future of fashion vibes that were both edgy and elegantly sleek.

Who knows whether the textiles imprinting of his maternal family or the dash and artistic breadth of his father Gianandrea – one of the tutelary deities of 20th century music – had the upper hand, but it is certain that Pino Gavazzeni had a fortunate entrepreneurial intuition when in 1975 – in the wake of the affirmation of pret-a-porter garments – he created Bagutta which immediately established itself as an international reference point for high quality shirt-making for men and women that was synonymous with creativity and Italian style, dividing itself between its own brand collections and the production of garments for some of the greatest Made in Italy stylists. Now that Pino’s interest is mainly as a shareholder, his son Antonio and nephew Andrea are at the helm of the company, respectively as CEO and president.
