On Trend: The Best Paris Street Style

On Trend: The Best Paris Street Style

With brands including Valentino, Lanvin, Kenzo and Balmain Homme showing, Paris Fashion Week Men’s is one of the industry’s calendar highlights. Outside the shows, photographers congregate to get a shot of the familiar editors, influencers and celebrities that frequent this iconic fashion weekend. It’s street style on another level – we came face to face with Off-White’s Virgil Abloh outside the Dior Homme show, just days after he showed his first collection for Louis Vuitton. We’re doing the effort these people put into each day’s look justice with a run-down of the best trends seen at Paris Fashion Week Men’s. Here’s how to wear them.

THE BELT BAG

A recurring motif on the streetwear scene, belt bags have become a men’s fashion week staple with luxe brands Gucci and Valentino wholly embracing the urban aesthetic. Contrast sneakers and a sweatshirt with check trousers like streetwear icon Gully at PFWM.

TRAINERS AND SOCKS

Look away now if you’re the kind of guy who can’t bear to see a sock showing above a sneaker. Seen on the more directional members of the street style set this season, team Gucci’s ‘ugly’ Rhyton Runners with a pair of Off-White’s finest hose. Bonus points for incorporating camo.

OVERSIZED OVER SHIRTS

Worn open, unbuttoned, tucked in and tucked out, whether oversized, deconstructed or both, shirts were having a moment in Paris. Wear Moncler’s quilted over shirt with a cap and techy trousers – white collar meets blue.

PASTELS

A pink top with a retro logo is the perfect pastel storm. Whilst it’s easy to overdo it, we’d also recommend making a statement by pairing this Gucci sweat with washed out denim and baby blue sneakers. If you prefer to keep it understated team with a contrasting neutral colour – navy cargo pants or black jeans would work well.
