KENZO: '90S FLASHBACK
Designer: Carol Lim and Humberto Leon
Synopsis: With geometric print boxers pulled high under jeans, flat caps worn backwards with tracksuits, and a trippy colour palette of washed out yellow and light lavender, it was a '90s flashback via hip hop Paris; all paraded in groups — a broody, moody, designer brat pack.
SACAI: SINISTER STREET WEAR
Designer: Chitose Abe
Synopsis: Inspired by Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, Abe sent out a creative mix of street wear staples including bowler-style hats and white bombers, hooded parkas and ponchos elevated with textiles drawn from South American gauchos — including flight suits and dusters in an alluring pink-lilac hue.
HERMÈS: SUNSHINE YELLOW
Designer: Véronique Nichanian
Synopsis: A classic wardrobe for the distinguished gentleman cast in the finest fabrications, but updated this season with bright bursts of sunshine yellow. Favourite incarnations of the lively hue? That suede bomber over a white mesh singlet, that tie-dye Harrington jacket, and that narrow-cut trouser paired with a luxe leather blouson.
AMI: CHECKS AND STRIPES
Designer: Alexandre Mattiussi
Synopsis: The modern wardrobe for the achingly hip Parisien crafted from checks and stripes. Think: A traditional grey plaid updated by it's appearance on a billowing trench coat, generously cut two-piece suit, and a truncated hooded jacket; as well as broad beach stripes in copper and black slathered across a short-sleeve shirt and tank top.
