These summits have changed a lot over the past two decades, thanks to Covid-19 and its variants. They now alternate between digital, in-person and online. “phygital” presentations.

Paris Fashion Week’s latest iteration, which showcased a bounty menswear for the Fall-2022 season, took a swing at old menswear conventions to establish a new norm. Designers created an agenda that felt bolder and more inclusive than usual, with ideas that were often gender-disaggregated or blended.

Front row buzz at Kenzo

Nigo, a designer/musician who founded A Bathing Ape, a well-known streetwear label, presented his first collection for Kenzo in front a buzzy crowd. Kanye West (or Ye) was also present. Julia Fox wore a Schiaparelli denim look while Fox wore a Schiaparelli denim outfit. Pharrell Williams was also spotted wearing eye-catching Tiffany & Co. shades with diamond-rimmed shades.

Nigo’s appointment seemed a bit of a coincidence. The brand was founded in 2005 by the late Kenzo TakadaNigo was conceived in 1970, the year Nigo was also born. Both are Japanese and both attended Tokyo’s prestigious Bunka fashion college. Takada’s debut runway show was held at Galerie Vivienne in the City of Light, which is also where Nigo chose his own.

Although there were stylistic references back to 1970 in the form of patches on varsity jackets and embroideries on berets, there was a fashion forwardness to the collection with a variety of separates. There was also confidence in the use of color, pattern, and plaid. Tailored and workwear pieces both cut a genderless silhouette.

Loewe has big ideas

Anderson presented a topcoat that was trimmed with holiday lights, denim microshorts, a gloved sweater that has long fabric tendrils running from the fingertips, as well as a jumper featuring a keyhole in the heart shape that exposed the left side of the nipple for Fall-Winter 2022. He also sent a knit muumuu with a meme-worthy cat and parakeet on its heads. According to the designer, the collection was partly inspired by what we see on our phones every day.

Louis Vuitton: The final moment

Another standout moment was the last collection by Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton. The collection was dreamlike and fantastical, and played with the signatures of Abloh’s work over the three and a quarter years he spent at Louis Vuitton before his death last year. There were skirted men, lace kits used as wings, hats that had spiked ears, a Wizard of Oz motif and colorful Keepall duffels. Abloh’s creativity never stopped.

Avant-garde fun at Rick Owens

Meanwhile, Rick OwensHe did not disappoint with his Fall 2022 collection, a long-time dancer along fashion’s most avantgarde frontiers.

While speaking with CNN Style last year, Owens said: “The fact is, all of my life, I’ve tried to present something that is an alternative to a very strict aesthetic that we see in this world. We are expected to adhere to it, but I try to blur the lines. And not in a militant way, but in a way that’s saying, ‘I propose this as an alternative to the standards you are used to.'”
The collection included shirts inscribed with unusual slogan like 'Subhuman,' 'Inhuman,' 'Superhuman,' and 'Urinal.'

Bluemarble — by Anthony Alvarez — hosted this season’s first runway show. Alvarez created his label from a 1972 Apollo 17 photo. His output combines American sportswear, European savoirfolk and Filipino artisanal touches. He created funky, comfortable and cozy clothes like a pair of jean trousers that are generously broken. They are paneled with a torquing and glitter-spangled fabric.

Kim Jones was the artistic director at Dior Men and worked under the ostensible shadow of Christian Dior himself to mark the 75th anniversary of the label. Jones has created significant hype by tapping third-party collaborators like the artist in the past.

Jones’s introspection was notable. Most important was Jones’ version of Dior’s famous “Bar”The jacket was first introduced in 1947 for women. It has a cut-and construction that adds subtle hourglass curves and architecture to the garment’s architecture. Dior’s original idea was so revolutionary at the time, that it earned him a whole moniker — the “New Look.”Jones’ men’s versions had double-breasted finishes and top-stitched seams.
