Paris Menswear Spring/Summer 2012

A collage of fashion show invitations signals day one of the Parisian arm of the menswear tour. The spring summer shows have migrated from Milan where sport and British style reigned as key catalysts for next summer ‘s gear. Over the next four days over fifty designers will predict their vision for 2012, a year that will be dominated by the Olympics arriving in London. Hot topics for this week include Christian Lacroix presenting its debut menswear collection under new creative director Sacha Walckhoff and at Louis Vuitton Kim Jones is taking the mantle from Paul Helbers. The Galliano brand will present its collection without the designer onboard, and tonight’s Mugler show will see the second outing from Nicola Formichetti, who has been posting teasers of his short film entitled, 'Brothers of Arcadia.' Judging by the invitations - an Air Mail letter from Louis Vuitton, a printed handkerchief from Yamamoto and a inflatable toy from Kenzo, we are set for a extensive and diverse survey into next seasons gentlemanly attire.
