Watch: video highlights from men's fashion week
Monday 27 June 2011
A new designer at Louis Vuitton, a surprise showing at John Galliano, and a lot of fresh talent - here are the video highlights from the Milan and Paris shows.
Louis Vuitton's show marked Kim Jones's debut as the label's menswear designer.
The model cast at Jean Paul Gaultier - including well-known gender bender Andreij Pejic - changed outfits for all the world to see, while a speaker commented on each ensemble in what was an untypical but well-received show.
Clean cuts and light colors dominated at Dior Homme.
At the Mugler show, creative director Nicola Formichetti sent modern knights in shining armor down the runway. The corresponding film, "Brothers of Arcadia," premiered on porn site Xtube.com.
Rick Owens's signature aesthetic goes well with the current grunge and 1990s trends.
Maybe the most creative set-up at the Paris shows: Henrik Vibskov's doors.
Yohji Yamamoto's cast must have been one of the most diverse of the whole fashion week.
The prize for the most spectacular setting went to Lanvin.
Cheerful music and bright colors created a joyful ambiance at Kenzo.
Thom Browne celebrated his new collection in true boudoir style.
Most hyped in Paris: Damir Doma, whose showroom also attracted rapper Kanye West this week.
Paul Smith stayed true to his own style but managed to add a fresh twist to the collection.
Not only did new menswear designer Bill Gaytten surprise the fashion crowd by showing a collection for the disgraced John Galliano, but the perfect Galliano copies (the beards! the hair!) of models were a nice gesture, according to many.
Dolce & Gabbana again drew on new media and social networks for inspiration.
Burberry Prorsum continues to crush on quirky hats.
Light and luxurious at the same time: Emporio Armani.
Rely on Vivienne Westwood for a spark of eccentricity in the otherwise rather conventional Milan.
Calvin Klein went straight back to the 1990s.
Prada invited the audience to watch the show on artificial lawn for an extra summery feeling.
Checks in all sizes and colors could be seen at Gucci.
Maybe the most 'punk' collection show in Milan: Alexander McQueen.
Versace's collection did not disappoint in the 'bling' department.
