Paris menswear: highlights from Junya Watanabe, Maison Martin Margiela, and Loewe

Posted on

Junya Watanabe

Apart from a handful of looks in cream and pink, this show was all about the blues (the color not the music). Models with cartoonish rockabilly hair wore pieces in a soft blue micro-weave that looked like denim, with patchwork cotton shirts and jackets with mixed patterns and footwear including leather flip-flops and penny loafers. 

Maison Martin Margiela

The Margiela show mixed parachute fabric outerwear, wooden-soled Chelsea boots, knit socks, sneakers, transparent mesh vests worn over skin-tone lycra, iridescent touches on suit fabrics, leather pants and beaded portraits. The standout pieces included the patchwork versions of denim jeans and motorcross and varsity jackets. 


Jonathan Anderson showed off his debut pieces for the Spanish luxury brand in a special space designed by M/M Paris (who also recently reworked the Loewe logo). The typically androgynous collection (there will be plenty of ladies lusting after the python zip-up purses and Meccano-inspired pin accessories) ably showed off the house’s leather working skills with stunning goatskin suede polos and paper-thin leather coats.
