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.
Military tailoring mixed with romanticism at Christian Dada's Spring/Summer 2017 runway show. Coats, sans shirt, were paired with leather pants or drop-crotch trousers to create haphazard looks that conveyed a sexy and nonchalant take to dressing.
Cerruti's been in flux for some time and with a (relatively) new creative director, it now allows for a more cohesive vision for the Paris-based label. For SS17, a lighter palette contrasted with nature-inspired textures to create a juxtaposition that was interesting and wearable. Camo-like jackets looked like moss-covered tree trunks while denim brought a more youthful and millennial-friendly aspect to the traditional label.
Virgil Abloh's Off-White is one of the buzziest labels of the moment, with fans like Kanye West, how could you not be? For SS17 - the runway show was open to the public - Virgil proffered a super cool, anti-establishment collection that included a collaboration with Brendan Fowler and Umbro. The result, akin to Raf Simons' Robert Mapplethorpe collection, saw Fowler's photographs on Off-White's street-savvy sportswear while Umbro's recognizable logo was seen on the crests of tees.
Paul Smith's latest outing for his eponymous label transcribed a laid back island aesthetic of roomy layers and plenty of color. The sporty looks looked ready for a night or a day at the park.
There were two birds killed with one stone at White Mountaineering's SS17 show. The label's main line was shown first then immediately after, its collaboration with Adidas took a turn on the runway. The result was a bit uneven with the former offering print and pattern heavy clothes with strong doses of color while the latter was an austere collection of black and white. However, both were equally sporty with roomy silhouettes.
