S/S 2011 menswear - Part 3: Paris Fashion Week

And here we are for another Spring/Summer 2011 menswear session. As you may know, Paris Fashion Week has just come to an end, and I loved to check new collections (almost) real-time thanks to bloggers who were very lucky to take part in the fashion shows. (And yes, I must admit, I'm saying it with a pinch of envy! Whatever...)
Anyway, I'm gonna show you, as always, the looks from the runways that caught me the most (in the best and sometimes in the worst sense).

Let's start with Dior Homme. The entire collection is based on neutral tones assembled in monochrome outfits made with soft and fluctuating textiles, which are additionally adorned with draperies.

Skulls and checked prints starred Commes Des Garçons collection, giving a bizarre attitude to it. 

Dries Van Noten collection, full of denim and bleached pieces, clearly recalls modern street style mixed with 70's English skinhead style and a touch of military.

Traditional and modern elements meet up in Givenchy collection, where leopard prints, which are dominant, espouse classic length shirts and leather pants.

Balmain was all camouflage and leather with military boots.

Beige and emerald green for Hermès

 Jean Paul Gaultier collection was one of my favorites and, well, I loved the ethnic tunics.

Louis Vuitton showed a very chic traveling man

Viktor & Rolf collection recalls "Hollywood stars holidaying in Biarritz in the forties"

The exaggeration triumphs in Yohji Yamamoto collection, which is after all fun and alternative 

Yves Saint Laurent draws on, once more, Marocco

And I wanna close this post with John Galliano, whose collection was - how to say - amazingly wacky (as usual) and theatrical, as it was inspired by Charlie Chaplin.

But that's not all. In the upcoming post I'll show you my two favorite collections from Paris Fashion Week. Now it would be necessary an emphatic "stay tuned", but don't expect it, 'cause I really hate how many bloggers overuse this expression. So... just keep following me if you want it!
