Catwalk Of Fame: The Top 5 Collections From Paris And Milan Men’s Fashion Weeks

milan-paris-ss-14

While London is known for pushing envelopes and breaking new talent, Paris and Milan is where the big dogs go to play. These five brands, especially, bared their fabulous fangs, proving their bite was as bespoke as their bite. And they didn’t even have a surprise — though not wholly unwelcome — streaker.

Check out Queerty’s picks for our top 5 favorite collections from Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks.

Comme des Garçons

Flowing, long shirt-tunics, in solids or contrasting prints or diaphanous textures, look great topped over a sensible ruched bottom, preferably knee-length — an aesthetically-pleasing alternative to the omnipresent thigh-high short.

Givenchy

Givenchy: the final frontier. These are the fashion voyages of Riccardo Tisci: to explore techno prints, to seek out stripes, and to boldly (or bodily) go where no open-toe sandal has gone before.

Raf Simons

It is now expected to see Simons knock-offs in the women’s collections (eyebrows raised at every living designer and clothing chain stocking primary colors), so let’s hope his man-onesies and high-waisted silhouettes trickle down to those masses still oppressed by the cargo short.

Thom Browne

A flair for the overtly-fabulous aside, this showboating sartor presented a parade of military men in two of the best trends for spring: shocking whites and an eternal favorite, the jodhpur.

Versace

Versace-SS14

It has been proven that the most comfortable outfit in the world is a speedo and billowy top. This time around, Donatella’s paint-splattered offerings are anything but a sober silhouette — we’ll take those tape-sculpted bodies and one laser-cut cardigan to start, please.
