Paris menswear shows: highlights from day three

Maison Martin Margiela

Held in the Oscar Niemeyer-designed headquarters of the French communist party, the Margiela collection showed off some stunning suiting and a sharp Prince of Wales check, while one of this season’s key pieces, the double-breasted great coat, came with a fur collar. The typical Margiela twists came with the treated denims, a felted wrap coat, truck tarpaulin outerwear, chestnut leather pants and a matching vest with utility pockets.

Riccardo Tisci’s models were sent out with fishnet stockings over their faces, and ahead of his collaboration with Nike, this show could certainly be described as full-on flirtation, teasing at the apex where American streetwear meets American sportswear. The runway’s chainlink fence provided the key to the abstract geometric basketball pattern detailing on the clothes. Pants were more ample this season: worn over chunky sneakers, they featured oversized pocket tabs in contrast colors. Furs and angora added a little luxe edge.

Creative Director Aldo Maria Camillo’s collection mined a sartorial yet relaxed vibe in plenty of moody fall tones. There was plenty of tweed, chunky wool knits, pinstripe and rusty brown tartan. Trousers came cropped with high waists, and were worn above burnished leather boots and tasseled lace-ups. Key items included the handsome, voluminous outerwear, especially the double-breasted military coats.
