As Paris Fashion Week continues, we take a look at French label Études' Spring/Summer 2016 show.
French label Études took to their nation's capital to unveil their Spring/Summer 2016 line, and Highsnobiety's man in the field Adam Katz Sinding was there to capture it all.
The label has made a name for itself thanks to its playful, graphic-heavy take on debonair menswear pieces, dragging their country's storied history in casual style into the 21st century, and this presentation was no exception thanks to the reckless sense of fun that made its presence felt throughout the collection.
Études' boys marched through a sunny Parisian courtyard donning a variety of pieces that used billowing, oversized silhouettes and boxy cuts as a canvas for vibrant primary colors. Said hues made their way onto everything from belted trenchcoats to colossally oversized tees.
While previous seasons used gratuitous logo hits to place Études' brand of Parisian chic firmly in the fashion-cum-streetwear niche that has proven so popular in recent seasons, this time around the label utilized jagged geometric prints to get the point across. This is high end streetwear, but executed with typically Parisian je ne sais quois.
The predominately white pieces - from the jackets right down to the socks - kept things crisp and the floppy brimmed hats, shirting and pleated trousers maintained a thoroughly debonair feel throughout, but Études couldn't resist adding their own take on current streetwear tropes. Zip shirts had their sleeves shortened to 3/4 length, tees were oversized to almost comical proportions and bombers were executed in woefully impractical white.
All in all, we were treated to another set of brash pieces that would happily exist in any adventurous man's - or woman's, for that matter - wardrobe, imbued with a sense of humor that is so often lacking in the sober world of menswear.
