Sailor suits marched down Kiko Kostadinov's SS17 runway show of utilitarian clothes in monochromatic colors.
An expansive collection of hard-edged clothes was what Marcelo Burlon County of Milan proffered, with an overwhelming selection of black-on-black looks. The street inspired clothes had all the hallmarks of a collection playing on gang-culture and the same-ness of dress and the pride they take in announcing their affiliation.
Rynshu's rocker vibes continue with a sexy, metallic collection for SS17. Slim cut suits, flowy shirts, and animal print accents - embossed, printed or patterned - round out the collection.
Suiting at Boglioli took on a more laid back style with separates strongly preferred over the traditional suits. The silhouettes were relaxed a little while jewel-toned colors dominated.
Strong African vibes ran through Agnes B.'s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, full of bright colors and strong patterns, including ones inspired by the Maasai, seen on beach towels wrapped around the waist and an overcoat. France, and Paris in particular, has been a melting pot of French and African cultures for some time with the two blending harmoniously to create a rich and diverse culture and that is seen here with the African influences, as stated, and fashion seen on the youth of Paris' rues.
Sean Suen's first show in Paris - he's previously shown in London - played on proportions, with flouncy layers on the bottom and more body hugging cuts on top. Meanwhile, fabrics and textures were the main attraction here, with metallic-like finish on the weave pattern seen on coats, shorts and jackets or the zipper detail on a pair of shorts.
Wet-haired models donning wide cut clothes at OAMC's Spring/Summer 2017 show that evoked a survivalist vibe, as if fleeing from the horrors of civilization to start over or wait out the dystopian future in nature with only one's most precious processions, socked away in an oversized bag.
Graphic tees and jorts are central to Lucien Pellat Finet's latest collection, continuing the Paris-based designer's laid back aesthetic.
During a recent trip to Spain, Jonathan Anderson was inspired by the fishermen and sailors he saw and that was reflected in his SS17 collection for Loewe. The resulting collection was chock full of roomy layers and oversized bags and other accessories, enough to fill it with one's loot after a day out at sea.
