After Milan, it was the time for Paris Fashion Week 2012! And after five days of parades, the Paris Fashion Week, dedicated to menswear, ended on January 22. We can now take a look at the emerging trends for Autumn / Winter 2012/2013. They range from ruffled hats to pieces inspired by the strict military style. The creators have also played quite a lot with strong padded shoulder silhouettes and unusually large sizes.

Hat or no hat?

After their display at the Milan Fashion Week, capes have continued to appear on the catwalks in Paris, driven in particular by Mugler and Yves Saint Laurent. The Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto has combined this theme with ample coat-style coverage, while the ponchos were a regular feature in the collections of Miharayasuhiro, Issey Miyake and Dior. We have also seen a variations of the ‘biker’ tendency, with capes of black leather.

The military style is still here

Inspired by the military uniforms, the presentation of Dior was dominated by the camouflage colors, while Balmain preferred the metal buttons jackets. Russian marine uniforms heavily influenced the style of the Mugler costumes. We also saw airman caps at the John Galliano’s display. However the strongest military-inspired ready-to-wear piece this season undoubtedly was the bomber jacket. Lacroix has also proposed a reversible version, Louis Vuitton showed some silk varieties, while Viktor & Rolf models featured padded shoulders adorned with leather details.

The creators see red

If the fluorescent was abundant in Milan, another just as vibrant color – red – was everywhere in Paris. We saw it in ponchos resembling the Red Riding Hood from Issey Miyake, and in hot-blood pants by Christian Lacroix and also in scarlet leather jackets from Acne. But the passion of this color could also be found in the pieces from Viktor & Rolf, Givenchy, Lanvin and Junya Watanabe.
The trousers were of all kinds – baggies, or sports shorts – but one of the most notable trends was the high waist. This was the case with Dries Van Noten and Rick Owens, where the models were dressed in high-waist pants and simple white top. At Louis Vuitton, high belts were also a key accessory.

Oversized clothing

Finally, despite the recent fashion of slender silhouettes, oversized pieces will be remembered as another recurring motive from the Paris Fashion Week. The models from the Thom Browne’s collection, could pass for football stars, with their artificially enlarged body types, Viktor & Rolf have also increased the male figure with coats and sweaters featuring hyper-expanded shoulders, while Rick Owens included extra-large scroll down jackets with huge shoulders and disproportionate necklines
