5

Paris Fashion Week unveiled an exquisite spread of offerings for the Spring 2025 menswear collections, showcasing diverse approaches to sartorial artistry. The key shows unveiled cutting-edge designs drenched in innovation, creativity, and a particularly poetic sense of beauty.

Issey Miyake’s show, ominously titled “Up, Up, and Away,” showcased ethereal displays that left attendees in awe. The designer’s garments, remarkably light and sumptuous, evoked the delightful charm of parachutes and kites set to take flight. Showcased in Mobilier National’s cobbled courtyard, this Homme Plissé collection was imbued with a windy charm, a fantastical transformation of the elements into wearable art. The elegant parade bore testimony to Satoshi Kondo and the Homme Plissé team’s genius for fabric manipulation. Standout pieces included a resplendent blue coat with angular sleeves that stunningly contrasted with soft pleats, a wearable work of art that morphed beautifully with the swings of air—a yet another ode to the house’s tradition of capturing romance in silhouette. Furthermore, innovative use of buttons enabled creations of voluminous silhouettes that burgeoned and shrank at the wearer’s whim.

On a different note, Rick Owens paid a jaw-dropping tribute to Hollywood. Drawing inspiration from his own journey from a judgmental hometown and the art deco of Tinseltown, Owens carved out a collection that celebrated the heyday of biblical epics, tinged with traces of decadent temptation and redeeming virtue. An indefatigable showman, Owens flooded the Palais de Tokyo with a pure, unadulterated spectacle, marrying street fashion with haute couture. His present collection stripped away all pretense of vice, instead underscoring unity and mutual reliance in a world fraught with intolerance—an inclusive march to the proving grounds of this radical designer.

Yohji Yamamoto’s lineup displayed a more understated, yet equally mesmerizing, urban cool. With an array of low visors, busy prints, and monochrome shades, Yamamoto’s models prowled the stark runway, unified in their nonchalant swagger. Their assorted ensembles, replete with details that would make an art historian swoon, highlighted Yamamoto’s ferocious commitment to innovative texture and fabric handling.

Parisian designer Alexandre Mattiussi, who has built a reputation for his masterful handling of understated elegance, leaned into minimalism for his latest showcase. Drawing from both contemporary and timeless fashion hallmarks, Mattiussi displayed a co-ed show that traveled through an entire color spectrum, from ebony to optimistic greens. Subtle accents, like the gleaming amulets on a plush tunic gown or naked torsos under floppy trench hybrids, illustrated Mattiussi’s compelling simplicity, which found a beautiful harmony with the raw, minimalist set.

These captivating presentations, etched with the creative signatures of their crafters, augur an enchanting season for the lovers of fashion. Already, the world awaits the promise of these designs finally coming alive in the streets and soirees alike.
