Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2023 menswear catwalk in Paris was a celebrity-studded homage to late designer Virgil Abloh. The Spring/Summer 2023 Men’s Collection showcased during Paris Fashion Week in the centre of Cour Carrée du Louvre opened with models carrying a rainbow flag as homage to Virgil Abloh. It was the very first show for the house, where the collection were presented on a rainbow runway. Paper airplanes and floral motifs, which were often prevalent in Abloh’s collections were embroidered onto tailored suits and coats, while paper folding hats were reimagined in white leather. The latest collection is united by the belief that imagination can heal, regenerate, and uplift. From well-structured silhouettes including tonal tailoring, thistle flower motifs and cartoon graphics, vibrant pops of colour and a play of proportions the collection was futuristic yet uber-stylish.

Paris Fashion Week

Bringing together nature and fashion in an unseen way on the runway was Loewe’s collection at the Paris Fashion Week. In a literal interpretation, chia grass sprouted from sneakers, hoodies or coats at Loewe. Creative Director Jonathan Anderson looked to the juxtaposition of the organic and fabricated. According to Loewe, the plants that have been grown on a series of garments and shoes are the result of an experimental process developed in collaboration with Paula Ulargui Escalona. It took 20 days for the grass to reach the desired level of growth in order to create each piece.

Staying in sync with the memo green at Paris Fashion Week, greenery also featured heavily at Kim Jones’ Dior Men collection, as models walked on a grassy runway. Sporty, breezy, and tactical, this season took inspiration from nature, often transposing unique prints onto knitwear and shirting. The garden set of the show featured 19,000 plants. Tailoring was juxtaposed with an elongated slouchy allure, and a similar insouciance emanates from a raincoat draped on the body from its straps and worn with ‘Dior Garden’ boots, characterised by a colour palette that featured soft shades such as subtle green and jadeite.

At the Paris Fashion Week, Thom Browne Men’s Spring Summer 2023 collection saw male models with spiky punk hairdos in a line-up of sparkly tweed ensembles. With a subtle hat-tip to nautical prints, the collection featured women’s clothing for men, such as bikinis and skirts, and featured tweed throughout the collection. The number plate held by the model is a tribute to the Frennew collection. At Thom Browne, peak-a-boo G-strings were switched out for exposed jock straps and torsos were the most powerful accessory.

A runway under the flaming sun at Paris Fashion Week was successfully executed by none other than Rick Owens. Returning to Palais de Tokyo, the show took place under three giant globes that were set ablaze, air-lifted and then dropped into the building’s fountain pool as models walked around its periphery creating sheer magic and drama. The show saw leather and sheer viscose as the prime fabric, while skin-tight tops and opaque ripstock nylon pants with hints of skin peeping through offered sensuality. Being bold and daring the brand offered vest tops from oversized tulle iterations with nipple-baring necklines to harness-like garments that barely covered the collarbone.

If there is someone who knows how to create a stellar show, it ought to be Simon Porte Jacquemus. For the Paris Fashion Week, Simon landed in the salt mountains of Camargue Park in the south of France for his fall 2022 collection Le Papier. A spectacular runway was carved out in the salt mountains to make a path for the slew of models donning couture in a neutral colour palette of black and white. The latest capsule from the French luxury brand is a wedding-inspired collection, ahead of the designer’s own wedding.
