Paris Fashion Menswear Runway Shows

PFW Men: DUNHILL SS20

Inspired by Japanese design and its influence on Britain’s clothing culture in the 1980s, dunhill presented us with a collection of opposing forces. Classicism was distorted, the austere was re-imagined with elegance, and the subtlest of details turned simple basics into the highlights of the collection. Relaxed, wrapped tailoring similar to the structure of a kimono took the place of the classic double-breasted jacket. Trouser hems were wide, grazed the floor, and sometimes layered with shorts. We saw plenty of oversized-yet-elevated looks like a pairing of black trousers, a brown vest, an overcoat in light gray, and a shirt with a silky green detail at the neck. The collection also featured a collaboration with Tokyo-based digital artist Kenta Cobayashi, whose images took on the form of prints, all distorting the brand name and iconography.
