The first month of this year’s summer was quite an eventful one for the global fashion community. After London Collections: Men and Milan Fashion Week, it was time for the world’s official capital of fashion to show off the brand new trends from an array of amazing designers who presented their spring-summer 2015 collections during Paris Fashion Week.
From Dior Homme to Carven and Paul Smith, many fantastic household names showcased their collections on the runways of the French capital, establishing the new trends for the summer of 2015!
In the mix of head-turning shapes, colors and cuts, we were able to spot a few trends that are probably going to take off quite soon and become the look of the 2015 summer. We even encourage you to start wearing some now! One of these was represented by the truly eye catching coats, many designers presenting men’s coats in vibrant colors and very saturated shades. We know that men don’t easily wear coats or jackets that are very colorful, but maybe the time has come for that to change. Lanvin, Dior and Berluti were just some of the fashion houses that presented such colorful pieces. A colorful coat can always be worn with other neutral pieces, especially with neutral pants, since they are the other most visible piece when you are wearing a coat.
Apparently jeans are making a comeback (as if they were ever out of style), as a lot of designers featured denim pieces in their collections. This trend was also a big one during Milan Fashion Week, as many designers showcased outfits that featured amazing pairs of jeans. Jeans are great neutral pieces and everyone should have a pair that makes them look good! We usually recommend that you get a dark-wash pair, as they are dressier and more versatile than light jeans. As a shopping tip, note that generally, one needs to try on around twenty pairs of jeans before finding the right one. Valentino, AMI Alexandre Mattiussi and Dior Homme were just some of the brands that featured denim in their collections.
A third trend we could see on the Parisian catwalks was wearing white sneakers with basically anything you can think of. It appears that white sneakers have become the go-to shoes: they work with anything; or at least this season. Brands such as JUUN.J, Louis Vuitton and Carven were just a few of those who paired white running shoes with anything from knitwear to formal attire.
Other trends that were very obvious at Paris Fashion Week were intricate prints, silky pants, which were featured by Haider Ackermann, Dries van Noten and Hermès. We really like the idea of a print pant and think that they should be worn more often. When it comes to prints, even though the prints presented at PFW were quite bold, if you plan on incorporating them into your wardrobe, you should know that you can opt for a lighter print or one that is more subtle. Prints can be always matched to other prints or to neutral colors, such as beige, black, white, khaki, tan, etc. Besides from printed pants, of course there were also a lot of tops that featured bold prints, which is always a good sartorial choice in our opinion.
Another big trend that marked this Fashion Week were jumpsuits. Jumpsuits are great pieces (in the form in which Thom Browne, Louis Vuitton or 3.1 Phillip Lim presented them), but they are not very versatile and adaptable. It takes a certain kind of event to wear a fancy jumpsuit to.
And because a picture is worth a thousand words, we’ve put together a gallery of our favorite looks from the French capital’s runways! Let’s take a look at the looks we found most appealing and at why we enjoyed them!
