Paris menswear: highlights from Louis Vuitton, Yohji Yamamoto, Dries Van Noten

Louis Vuitton 

Louis Vuitton’s British menswear designer Kim Jones focused on herringbone and chevron patterns for Spring-Summer 2015. Suiting was classic and came mostly double-breasted, while casual pants were worn high and belted. Safari jackets, flight suits and bomber jackets rounded off the 1970s aviation-themed show with some added dazzle from the ring details and embroidered stars which adorned some of the outerwear. 

Yohji Yamamoto

The legendary Japanese designer opened with loose tailoring with dark floral prints, his louche-styled models wearing hats and scarves wrapped around their heads. Fun touches included a pinstriped pattern patched with naval stripes, and asymmetric buttons, while the darker middle-sections looks gave way to denim, leather and painted linen pieces.  

Dries Van Noten

Dancers were at the heart of things at Dries, from the silk prints (a collaboration with Richard Haines), to the leotard-style tank tops, to lopsided brocade details attached to harness straps running across the models’ chests. There were also plenty of simpler pieces including layered t-shirts and sporty shorts. Tailoring here was also double-breasted with long, full-shouldered jackets paired with pants which ranged from loose to greyhound skinny.
