Paris Women’s Spring 2021 came to a close Tuesday, October 6, drawing a line under a month of digital and physical shows across the four major capitals. Given the array of presentation formats, never before has the term "mixed bag" applied so literally.
While the next menswear events don't take place until January — circumstances not permitting — co-ed shows and a continued blurring of the gender line meant that the boys still had plenty to get excited about. Of course, bigger questions like the pandemic and climate crisis still loom over the industry and its role going forward.
Below, find a random assortment, in no particular order, of our favorite cool stuff from the past eight days.
Miu Miu tracksuit
Miuccia traveled back to the '70s and returned with these dynamite tracksuits.
Louis Vuitton coat
There are coats and then there are It-coats. Not sure about the rest, though.
Louis Vuitton boots
Puffer boots for rich people.
Dries Van Noten psychedelic shirt
Like wearing a gorgeous Macaw parrot.
Balmain pagoda jacket
The final boss of Zoom flexing.
Li Ning sneakers
The adidas Clima-Cool's bad-boy older brother who ran away from home to sell hash and play bass in a punk band.
Marine Serre PPE
Saw your man pictured above in Berghain just before the pandemic. Rumor has it he didn't leave the dance floor for 72 hours.
Givenchy bottle bag
The Antigona bag gets all the press, but can it keep your Bovril warm at the football? Proof that reusable bottles are the coolest accessory after all.
Remember music festivals? This is how I usually look on day three.
The Tesla Cybertruck, but for your feet.
Rick Owens face mask
A face mask that can be tucked into your shirt? Forget the thigh-high platforms, this is Rick’s boldest move yet.
Thom Browne Hector bag
A Thom Browne classic. More expensive than a pedigree daschund and worth every penny.
Savage x FENTY boxer shorts
As if you needed another excuse to NOT wear pants at home.
Acne Studios sunglasses
Spring trend alert: jumbo-sized sunglasses that are bigger than your face.
