Tactical outerwear meets contemporary tailoring in Paris
The international epicentre of luxury fashion, Paris lays claim to one of the longest and richest design heritages in the world. The exclusive home of haute couture, Paris demands the utmost respect from the global fashion elite and brings each season's round of collections to a powerful crescendo, with shows from a smorgasbord of the world's most profitable and well-respected luxury houses underlining the cultural gravitas of the French capital.
With a roster which includes Off-White, Valentino, Rick Owens, and Dries Van Noten (to name but a few), each January and September act as a not-so-subtle reminder of Paris' unmatched historical importance in luxury fashion and, season after season, Paris is fast establishing itself as the western-hub of luxury streetwear.
Although each of the world's four key fashion destinations has its own distinct flavour and place in the fashion circuit - New York delivering a distillation of the hottest American and East-Asian brands, London best-loved for its subversive proclivity for emerging talent and experimental attitude, and Milan a seasonal celebration of the finest tailoring and classic eveningwear - Paris is the fashion equivalent of Mount Olympus, where industry monoliths present their latest iterations of style with collections which will drive hundreds of millions in revenue over the course of the season.
A city with style running to the very core of its DNA, Paris never fails to impress. Our man on the streets, Robert Spangle, captured some of the best men's style at PFW AW18.
