Paris Men's Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012 - 2013 - Day 3

It was surprisingly dry on Saturday, so I ended up making some of my social responsibilities relatively dry. Even though I felt like death the night before but thanks to Nyquil I was better by the time brunch rolls along come Saturday.

Sunday was a really rough with the SF 49's got shut down by the NY Giants (American football to those wondering what I'm talking about) for the Super Bowl.

Oh well, Happy Monday nonetheless.

Paris fashion week, Day 3! A lot of strong avante garde looks today (or strong looks in general). The top 5 looks for Day 3.

Nothing truly extraordinary about the collection just great tailoring. The presentation itself was more interesting because of the settings where it took place the study, a dinner and outdoors, it was a great idea.

Another post-apocalyptic scenario collection? Perhaps. The truth was this collection was really great with the attention to detail with the layering and the draping. The leather jackets were something special.

I thought that the collection was bringing androgynous to another level but you know Marc Jacobs would totally wear this. The frilly collection not only featured skirts but flower prints. I do like the knit cardigan/jacket. Definitely skirts are in this fall.

Stars and Stripes seemed to be the new rottweiler/birds of paradise. The collection as always was really masculine even in skirts and tights. the color as always constituted browns, blacks, and reds. I'm not gonna say I totally hated this collection but for the first time in a number of seasons, I'm not a big fan of this collection . . . so far.

A bunch of reversibles and winter essentials.  Nothing truly exciting but a great collection nonetheless.

Another collection lacking the brilliance (no matter what he said or did), John Galliano was not a John Galliano collection without the man. There were some great tailoring and, honestly, handsome looking jackets but the breeches eventhough interesting was a bit off. In the end it mimicked what we saw for their last collection, lack of story telling and direction that I come to expect from a Galliano collection.

Another modern, futuristic collection featuring great coats and dramatic outerwear.

A little bit country fashion . . . again. I dunno  . . .

Okay eventhough with the wild exaggeration of proportions I thought this collection was totally wearable. A little dramatic but wearable. I'm absolutely all about the prints towards the end of the show. Beautiful. One of my highlights for this day.

I love Kris Van Assche's take on the the whole 50's madmen look. I personally loved the keikogi/blazers. The built-in tie bar was great as well. This was the thing that I love with Kris, he never fails to surprised me season after season.

Pilati showed a strong, amazing collection for Yves Saint Laurent this season. Amazing leather on black outfits that were handsome and masculine. But to me, the star of the collection were the shoes. The leather loafers with the gold metalic plates over them. Absolutely love!

Day 3: Berluti, Boris Bidjan Saberi, Comme Des Garcons, Givenchy, Gustavo Lins, John Galliano, Julius, Junya Watanabe, Juun J, Kris Van Assche, Yves Saint Laurent.
