denim jackets men

The men’s Paris fashion Week started off two days ago with – denim! We’re delighted to note that one of the first brands to participate was “steel-blue”, and we hope to see much more like this in the fashion weeks to come around the globe.

Denim, denim and then more denim.

That was the formula employed at the Milan-based house for spring-summer to produce a hip, urban, loose, and highly masculine aesthetic.

Steel-blue denim, a denim shirt with frayed sleeve edges and metal zippers accessorized with a jangling key chain, oversized and wide leg, super long jeans –  curved round, instead of vertically down – in a hip-hop style. Just to mention a few high lights.

Oversize white T-shirts with logos, retro sneakers and an oversize color-blocked, tie-dye style coat added an on-trend whiff of the ’80s in the collection that never forgot to have fun.

White confetti fell from snow machines at one point to a slurred remix of Bing Crosby’s “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas,” prompting chuckles from front row attendees who saw irony at the snowfall during a spring-summer collection, in the sweltering Paris heat, in which many of the models were topless (see image below).

The collection stood out for using models from different ethnic backgrounds – sadly, a rarity for many Paris shows.
