The men's shows are just wrapping up in Paris. Our amazing contributors Long Nguyen of Flaunt mag and Alice Pfeiffer are there now reviewing the shows. For a more in depth analysis of the collections, read their lovely reviews. For a quick once over of the most extreme-styled looks to come down the runways of Milan and Paris, read this round up.
The men's shows are always fun to look at because they're often styled even more outrageously than the women's shows. This year menswear designers showed us scuba mankinis, frozen yellow Ken-doll hair, hot pants and fringed onesies. These things look good on models on the runway, but heaven help us if mere mortals tried to pull this stuff off on the street. Though, more power to you if you're brave enough to try it.
Take a look.
BERNHARD WILLHELM I think this guy deserves a beer.
MUGLER That's going to give you some wack tan lines.
SONGZIO I bet he has to lather rinse repeat repeat repeat to get that Ken doll hair out.
ANN DEMEULEMEESTER It's almost like he's not wearing a shirt. Almost.
MONCLER Shiny shiny muscles.
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD Leave it to Dame Vivienne to create a high fashion over-sized fanny pack for men. In plaid, thank you very much.
HERMES He wears short shorts.
THOM BROWNE Men can be flappers too.
RICK OWENS There aren't many men who can pull off a fitted maxi skirt, but to the few who can, hats off to you.
BERNHARD WILLHELM Pairing cowboy boots with underwear is not OK. OK?
