Paris Fashion Week

26 January 2012

Our lovely boys have kicked off Paris Fashion Week with a bang! We take a look at some of the beautiful collections our boys were walking for during this season in the French capital.


The stunning and ever-so-charming Hungarian model, Misa Patinski was busy, having been walking for two amazing fall/winter shows. In one sporting dark, jewel-toned, streamlined garments by Mugler among the likes of top models Adrian Cardoso, Adrien Sahores, and another featured ‘Boys by Girls’ model, the dapper Englishman, Jamie Wise.

Viktor & Rolf

Select model O’Shea Robertson dawned the catwalk wearing Viktor & Rolf’s fantastic, leather-heavy fall/winter menswear collection alongside superstars Peter Bruder Sean O’Pry and Clement Chabernaud.

Phillip Lim and John Galliano

In his second show, Misa wore youthful, 60s-inspired pieces of Phillip Lim’s ready-to-wear fall/winter collection.

Looking polished in a belted jacket, Melker Andersson models Galliano's Creative Director, Bill Gaytten's collection which drew inspiration from the American Prohibition era, featuring double breasted suits, fur and baggy trousers.

Clean and crisp, O'Shea Robertson showcases Hermes vision for the AW12 suit that focuses on a dark, granite colour palette and an uncluttered silhouette.

Sebastian Sauve, O'Shea Robertson and Keith Hernandez were each accessorized with a bull ring creating Givenchy's very own collection of Minotaur models. Black and red was present throughout, echoing the bold and graphic American flag. Tailored suits and darker tones balanced out the more striking designs to maintain a sophisticated aesthetic.

Ann Demeulemeester and Kris Van Assche

Looking elegant and theatrical, Select model Josh Tuckley wears the flamboyant new romantic designs of Ann Demeulemeester that reimagined the silhouette with tailcoats and a mix of drainpipe and loose trousers.

Yuri Pleskun beautifully showcases Kris Van Assche's oriental influenced collection that experiments with layering, wide cut trousers and uniformity.

Paul Smith

Yuri continues to impress wearing naval inspired pieces for Paul Smith such as the jumper covered in a shark teeth print below. Complete with marine tones of blues and greens, every aspect of the designs contributed to the naval theme including jacket collars draped across the neckline to enhance the swirling of dark blue waves of fabric.

Damir Doma and Dries Van Noten

Yuri Pleskun works the tribal imagination of Damir Dova in heavily textured fabrics and sweeping shapes. Paired with the suggestion of the tailored suit and hints of crimson, Doma plays with theatrical reaslism where the conventional becomes the decandent.

Lastly, Yuri has also been featured in Dries Van Noten’s ready-to-wear fall/winter show, sporting elegant, psychedelic prints in sharp, tailored pieces.
