Beautiful Clothes Worn By Beautiful Boys

Saturday was easily our busiest but equally thrilling day for Men’s Fashion Week here in Paris. The day began nice and early at the Espace Wagram on the Champs Elysees for the Songzio show. Arguably one of South Korea’s most famous designers, Songzio’s designs are incredibly precise, avant garde and architectural.

After the show we quickly rushed off to our second show of the day! Deciding it would be more efficient (and scenic!) to take the bus (again, did you think we’d take limos everywhere!?) to our next location. Taking the bus anywhere around Champs Elysees feels a bit like cheating… you’ve paid a fraction of the price and get to see the same sights as all those other tourists who pay the big bucks to take bus tours!

The second show of the day was undoubtedly my favourite. We arrived at Hôtel de Poulpry to be greeted by breathtaking architecture and gorgeous clothes for Icosphere. British designer Julia Smith was as beautiful as she was charming and easily the most down to earth designer I’ve encountered so far. When brought the the lunch table backstage she was offered a lentil salad by her assistant which she quickly shooed away saying “that’s a little too healthy for me darling, isn’t there anything delicious out here?” I laughed at her comment. Surprised someone had heard her, she looked up and saw me. She gave me a playful smile and wink then grabbed a bunch of candies and a sandwich and strolled off in her elegant black coat with a luxurious black fox fur lapel.

As soon as the show ended we had a mad dash to the next show where all of the Heads of Press were already waiting for us. Our effort at arriving quickly to Miharayasuhiro ended in us being crushed into the already vast crowd of people waiting to enter the show room. What was great about the Miharayasuhiro collection was that he presented it as much more of an installation piece/presentation than a runway show. Models stood on white pedestals, beautifully lit, and with timed movements to showcase both front back and sides of their looks, before rotating to the next podium. This allowed each member of press to acquire fully detailed personal shots of each look. The downside to this was that the space was so small, it went from being “intimate” to being just plain crowded. Models slowly stopped being able to make their way through the crowds to their next position, while an uber private runway show was being held upstairs for a top secret audience. While the space was undoubtedly the smallest of three we had been to, the clothing was absolutely gorgeous! Because of the incredibly tight quarters of the space my photographs of this particular collection are limited to only two photos, but you’ll get the idea.

With Men’s Fashion week ending today, I’m getting prepared for the ultimate mindblowingness of Haute Couture which starts tomorrow!! Men’s has been a beautiful introduction to the artistry, taste level, and professionalism of all that makes Paris the ultimate fashion centre. With Men’s under my belt I’m sure I’ll pass a sleeplessly excited night to see the incredible artistry that Couture has in store for us this week!
