Paris Fashion Week: A post too late and too chic.

Ok, first of all, I'm SO sorry for being so late in coming up with this post. I'm a lazy ass, so sorry.

And now, moving on from apologizing, I'm going to start recounting my picks from Paris Men's Fashion Week and tell you guys how exactly I gained dressing inspiration from 'em.

First, Dolce & Gabbana, which is a house I have come to adore. Their stuff this season was so unpretentious and carelessly chic. I enjoyed some of the elements of their show immensely, namely (the last time I used "namely" was in my Class 10 History paper LOL), parachute-ey pants in aqua and their vintage Mickey printed tee was awesome. Also, a pair of brown suede pants that I must have! (but probably won't :P)

Also, that tux with the "HIGH" tops. I want :(.

Second up is Dior Homme, arguably the chicest menswear I've seen this season. They were all about structuring and tonal pieces and in essence very clean lines and strong silhouettes. I was all over the Quilted jacket and jersey pants outfit. Oh so chic!
This collection was fantastically tailored and my favourite look is probably the grey on grey suit effect, the finishing is immaculate and the brogues. Oh don't even get me started.

Next is the house which I can't ever get enough of, Louis Vuitton. They showed fantastic jackets, gloves, bags, everything. My favourite, you ask? The orange accessories, I've been craving orange for days now. The footwear was brill' and boots like those, can kill a person (In all the best possible ways, of course!)

Another house with a ferosh' showing was Givenchy. They showed fantastic tailored shirts and men's leggings/jeans. That could only work if one has pins like those.

So those were some of the trends I enjoyed. And, this fall, Imma be wearing my shirt sticking out below my jumper, a vintage cartoon tee with high tops, structured as hell suit silhouettes, leather accessories and last but definitely not the least cardigans and casual jackets to wear layered carelessly/messily, the way its supposed to be done. And yeah, black with generous dollops of grey.
