Paris Men’s Collections SS15 Athletic Check Play at 3.1 Phillip Lim 

Clashing patterns and checks seem to be omnipresent for SS15. At 3.1 Phillip Lim checks – ever ripe for the re-imagining – go sporty on a textured two-piece of crew-neck and shorts here. A seriously clean white sees the windowpane layered over a self-check to create an oversized and modernist glen check. Broken with a reverse L block, this jumps to the black negative version, keeping the same dimensions but looking more traditional. Braces break the lines and the knee socks add a holidaying edge to this modern look.

Milan Men’s Collections SS15Fendi’s City Slicker Pop  
Nothing is ever what it seems at Fendi - creating ambiguity is something Silvia Venturini Fendi shares with Fendi’s eminence grise, Karl Lagerfeld. Proving there is such thing as a subtle clash, Silvia i mastered the art of separates without the color palette matching perfectly. By using neutrals and blacks as a canvas, Fendi’s tangy brights made a bolder statement. The apple green knit looks all the more sophisticated for the lilac-hued gray on the jacket. And it’s got a definite summer tang too, the ripened brights matching the open-toed tread of the rich leather sandals. The headphones make it clear this is a casual travelling chic for a chap dashing about the city.

Milan Men’s Collections SS15 Dsquared² - The Pope of Pop 

The Dsquared² men’s Spring show was called Stud2io. It was the twins’ twist on Warhol’s Factory - the Catens Warhol subtext provided consistency with enough graphic high points to merit a show-of-the-day gong. Warhol was the Pope of Pop, and the twins grabbed his brightly colored ball and ran with it all the way to the pink Speedo. The artist’s candy-colored camo patterned a nylon shorts suit; his cat drawings provided the motif of a buy-it-now sweatshirt (fuzzy inside out).

Paris Men’s Collections SS15Louis Vuitton’s Passage to India

Kim Jones was named for a Rudyard Kipling character, the Irish orphan alone in late-19th-century India. The avid jet setter, Kim Jones presented the Louis Vuitton man with an aviation-inspired twist for SS15. Visiting India for inspiration, rich hues of blue and leather brown were at the collection’s heart as seen in its core pieces: luxe bags, belts and structured coats in various lengths. Playing with the ‘L’ and ‘V’ in Louis Vuitton, graphic bold colors came into play as the standard polo shirt received a fun update. A bright burst of fuchsia brought another dimension to the collection with the roaring hue dressing outerwear and shirts with retro-inspired geometric prints.

Paris Men’s Collections SS15Saint Laurent’s “Psych Rock’s New Rising” 

The 70s inspired lineup continued Slimane’s obsession with rock and fashion. Standing out against relaxed silhouettes proposed by the majority of fashion brands this season, Slimane stayed true to his waif slim lines with cigarette pants offset by the volume of printed ponchos. Paired with ankle boots, skinny scarves and jewelry, fitted shirts and striped tees were worn with impeccably tailored blazers. The sharp fit of suits was extended to essentials such as the denim jacket, a casual alternative to form-fitting leather pants and embroidered jackets.

For punch, printed splatters, contrasting bars and dark floral prints decorated the somber lineup.
