INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

5 SLICK LOOKS FROM PARIS FASHION WEEK

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 29 June 2018

The penultimate leg of the menswear season took place in Paris last weekend. From Virgil Abloh’s star-studded debut at Louis Vuitton to Galliano’s first menswear line for Margiela, it was the key city to watch this season. And the street stylers in attendance certainly dressed for the occasion – so, take a look at our round-up of the steeziest guys spotted outside the shows.

On the down low

Fashion week is typically seen as a time to dress as ostentatiously as possible, however, sometimes going low-key is your best bet. This guy shows that less is more by going for a Scandi-inspired getup centred around slate-grey, black and camel brown tones. If your grandad took a shining to streetwear, we reckon it’d look pretty close to this ensemble – rocking a black cap that matches his  graphic-print tee, he goes for a fitted check blazer, darted pants and clean off-white lace-up sneakers. Extra points for that ultra-luxurious vegetable-tan leather bag.

Mint condition

In case you haven’t heard us harping on about this already, colourful co-ords are the way forward for 2018. This chap knows what’s up, as he’s chosen to sport a peppermint green two-piece. He clearly has a penchant for pastel-hued garms as he opts for a peach graphic-print T-shirt to pair with his set – check out how his tee expertly matches the colour of his hair. For a laid-back finish, he ends his look with all black kicks, a casual tote bag and 70s-inspired shades. So smooth.

Purple reign

Another guy keen to don pastel colours for spring, this fella makes lilac the focal point of his ’fit. He starts off with a simple, pale purple T-shirt and layers a cream graphic-print shacket over the top for added flavour. On his bottom half, he goes for dad-approved check pants, which is where his ensemble starts to get really interesting: notice the way his  cross-body bag reflects the colour of his top and his slacks. To round-off his look, he makes like his fellow street styler and pops on a pair of retro sunglasses (with purple-tinted lenses, of course).

Attention to detail

At first glance, this guy also seems inclined to keeping his aesthetic simple, but he turns it up a notch with his selection of accoutrements. To begin, he goes for a cream T-shirt paired with chocolate brown darted trousers for a minimal, straight-forward base. But he elevates his look by going for standout aviator sunglasses and an oversized bucket hat in the same colour as his tee. On foot, he dons the much-hyped Balenciaga Triple S trainers and carries all his essentials in an instantly iconic Off-White pouch. Atypical accessories, sorted.

Joy rider

For a sure-fire lesson in how to nail streetwear-meets-skatewear, look no further than this guy’s ensemble. His graphic-print long-sleeved top signals 90s skater vibes, but he switches up his style down low by going for slick belted side-stripe trews. Notice the subtle way in which he proves his sartorial prowess by matching the stripe detailing on his trousers to the lettering on his tee. Alike several of the other street stylers in this list, he caps off his getup with a set of old-school sunnies, before also adding a beanie and the highly coveted Nike BETRUE Zoom Fly sneakers to his well-thought-out mix.
