COMME DES GARCONS HOMME PLUS – PARIS FASHION WEEK SS12 MENSWEAR

Comme Des Garcons Homme Plus SS12

Comme Des Garcons Homme Plus entered the runway displaying an androgynous assortment of black jackets over baggy black skirts, teamed with loafers and ankle socks. The jackets were structured and fitted in shape, featuring collars or lapels for a smart style, and buttons or zips to bring the garment in at the waist for a tailored appearance. Longer coats also made a repeated appearance in striking pinstripe with double breasted buttons.

Along with the unusual skirt-style leg wear, tailored shorts and trousers were also featured. Trousers tended to sit at ankle length, displaying the running theme of pulled up socks, while shorts generally sat at knee length. Some of the more interesting looks in the trouser range were the blue and white pinstriped slacks with black patches, a stylish imitation of stereotypically torn school trousers sewn up with mismatched patches. 

Silvery white and black chequered print suits were next to emerge on the runway. Again, jackets stood out as significant pieces, demanding attention via textured sleeves and structured cuffs. Matching shorts and trousers completed the monochrome palette.

A striking selection of pink suits were also shown featuring a chequered square embellishment on glossy fabric. Again, jackets ranged in shape and style from basic blazer silhouettes to long line sleeveless suit jackets. The finale came in the shape of various mackintosh style jackets in a subtle grey print.

Headwear featured throughout the show as an important addition to the collection, from towering jewel encrusted crowns to misshapen, angular straw hats, bringing a further sense of eccentric luxury to the collection.
