Paris Men’s Fashion Week spring/summer 2014: Wednesday

After a successful London Collections: Men showcase and a host of star-studded events during Milan Men’s Fashion Week, we head to Paris for the final men’s showcase for spring/summer 2014

Marina Nelson,

Our first show at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris took us to a presentation at Carven. The neutral-toned showroom was the backdrop for a spring pastel collection perfect for the beach.

Carven took us back to happy summertimes, with cute motif jumpers, seaside shorts, casual beach sandals and sun hats. Day tones included sunshine orange, pastel yellow and green, while evening pieces featured deep blue and caramel brown.

Valentino brought the house down with utilitarian day-to-night attire featuring oversized short leather coats, camouflage jackets and floral trousers, before showcasing sharp, clean tailoring for the finale. Colours were simple; beige, khaki, light denim and midnight blue showed Valentino can do casual and still remain chic.

Raf Simons
Raf Simons, Dior’s lead designer, took his own label to geometric heights with bright patterns, clashing colours, colour blocking and his signature curved shoulder silhouettes. Simons took a woman’s tunic and reworked it for the modern man. Oversized prints and patterns joined the feminine collection later alongside oversized, childlike rubber footwear, creating a show that had everybody talking.

@allistertran tweeted: Raf Simons show was probably the best show of the whole season so far #PFW
