Paris menswear SS15 highlights

Sporty chic rules in spring summer 2015 shows

Sweatshirts layering the suits, pin-stripped suits worn with sporty trainers and basketball shorts have been eclipsing the runways of London, Milan and Paris homme shows in fall and spring 2014. And the sporty chic continues to dominate the SS15 too. The Paris menswear week radiated major artisanal influences – Louis Vuitton was inspired by the Jodhpur royalty, Dries Van Noten took the ballet active-wear route while at Dior homme, Kris Van Assche showcased arty, handwritten notes (sourced from Monsieur Dior’s archive) on separates and accessories.

Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent channelled his punk rockstar vibe with models wearing ponchos with drainpipes.
