With what felt like a million amazing brands showing back to back, we have to admit Paris Men’s Fashion Week has left us feeling a little overwhelmed. Keeping on top of every show quickly became near impossible, which is why we’re recounting some of the iconic collections from Paris Fashion Week that you might’ve missed. Don’t worry, we gotchu.

ACNE STUDIOS SAID WELCOME TO THE ‘GRAND TOUR’

For SS24, Acne Studios invited us on their ‘Grand Tour’, a show updating the 17th century sightseeing wardrobe for the modern day. Featuring items and looks embedded in a variety of cultures, the collection sure did take us on a tour through its unique colours, textures, and styles. Fluffy jumpers, electric colour schemes, and patchwork pants acted as an ode to travellers and their distinct identities.

COMME DES GARÇONS CAME IN CLUTCH WITH FOOTWEAR

Rei Kawakubo’s SS24 collection for COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS was something different to say the least. Utilising deconstruction and reconstruction, the brand’s looks were expertly tailored yet simultaneously unconventional, featuring feathers, mesh, and even hair. The cherry on the top of the whole collection was CDG’s footwear which has gone appropriately viral since the show: you’ve heard of having two left feet, now CDG gives us two right feet as well.

BERLUTI WAS LUXURY PERSONIFIED

Parisian brand, Berluti showed its SS24 collection, a blend of contemporary aesthetics and masculine dress codes embodied in a collection that was basically luxury personified. Having initially been established as a bespoke shoemaker, the footwear in Berlutti’s collection was flawless, with square-toed loafers and knitted Shadow sneakers accessorising each look.

THE WALES BONNER X UGGS COLLAB WAS ICONIC

For SS24, Wales Bonner paid homage to long journeys and life missions through a capsule collection that was durable, wearable, and aesthetically beautiful. And what shoe did she have models wear for this “long journey”? UGGs, of course. The sheepskin Ascot slippers were hand-embroidered with clear quartz crystals that paired seamlessly with the show’s luxurious aesthetic.

KOCHÉ DID SOFT MASCULINITY

Christelle Kocher bridged the gap between the ease of casual clothing and the prestige of couture for Koché SS24. The collection was an ode to femininity, pulling on soft, delicate aesthetics whilst also being inspired by masculine silhouettes and styles. Soft knit sweaters and tulle shirts over loose cream pants are contrasted with powerful capes made entirely of black feathers. Koché undoubtedly has a piece for every person, in every moment, in every place.

SONGZIO CELEBRATED ITS 30TH ANNIVERSARY

For Songzio’s 30th Anniversary collection, the brand did not hold back. With a focus on fluidity, the SS24 show titled ‘Pure Rebel’ was a blend of cultures, styles, and aesthetics. Utilising draping, layering, and plated cuts, the collection contrasted loose, light and fluid fabrics with heavy, sculptural pieces to create a variety of looks reminiscent of ancient Korean clothing and armour.
