I could try to articulate the mood of the shows at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, but the images tell a more compelling story of the shape of man to come. Here are Voir’s key looks from the best of the best for Spring Summer ’19.
“We are the world.” Virgil Abloh
“Tailoring forms the backbone to this collection.”
“it’s about a beauty, an elegance, a rawness: a dark and a light. It’s not about street. So we don’t have a trainer” Sarah Burton
“I’d call it romantic, rather than feminine,” Kim Jones
“Please see the world through my eyes . . . please . . .” Thom Browne
“it feels a little bit like a riot or Burning Man. It adds a sense of play and recklessness.” Rick Owens
“this season I wanted to escape, just for the weekend. I think slow is the new fast, because everything is so crazy now, you know, in the fashion industry. I feel I want to bring back something calm, tender, romantic, and soft.” Alexandre Mattiussi
“I’m introducing ‘Style’ in different languages” Heron Preston
Dries Van Noten
“I wanted a collection which was really fresh, and about color.” Dries Van Noten
“I wanted to explain that fashion became so boring.” Yohji Yamamoto
“the innocent childhood sensibility of obsessing over heroes and hobbies.” Junya Watanabe
“It’s the highest form of dressmaking, but for men . . . I hope it’s going to define a new sensuality, a new sexuality.” John Galliano
“I always like this space between: not formal and not casual. Not boring and not a caricature. It’s in between, a space where things blend. Lucas Ossendrijver
