Drawing a close to the menswear season in Paris, illustrator Megan St Clair runs us through her favourite looks as captured live during the week. Through intricately detailed outerwear, a resurgence of classic cuts and an experimentation in knitwear, the man of autumn/winter 2019 is in for a treat.
Staple outwear pieces were manipulated to fit the demand for crafted practicality—with an immaculate leather patchwork bomber from Hermès, to Dior Men’s update on the trench, and Sankuanz’s vinyl check print flight jacket. Knitwear went from conceptual cut outs at Christian Dada, to artwork prints at Namacheko and Dior Men, while Officine Générale took a Fair Isle classic for a tonal update.
Adding a certain je ne sais quoi to the collections, the hat of the season seemed to sit somewhere between a trapper and a baseball cap, as shown by Wooyoungmi and Loewe amongst others. While balaclavas, statement gloves and bags with tech-detail made no sign of going anywhere fast.
