We’re a pretty eager bunch here at Kellan and always looking ahead to the next big thing and then trying to create socks to complement it. So, that’s why we’ve had an eager eye on the recent Fall/Winter collections for men and - here are some of those that caught our eye.
Alexander McQueen Collection
Paris in the springtime, well unfortunately not just yet. However, the Alexander McQueen Collection really got us excited thanks to its pretty sick prints and the collection of extremely interesting apparel. From printed trousers, to parkas, to printed tees and harem pants, it was all there and really was a nice collection. It follows on from the labels recent showcasing of three piece suits and double breasted jackets.
Yves Saint Laurent
This was the pick of Paris Fashion Week in terms of anticipation and one that was the talk of the fashion world. So, were we excited by what we saw and will we be using the collection to inspire our new socks? Well, Hedi Slimane delivered some pretty cool, rock inspired pieces - check shirts, leopard skin knitwear and leather galore. It looked great and we’re excited already for next Fall/ Winter.
Timeless pieces and exciting outwear were the name of the game for A.P.C.’s Paris Fashion Week. The brand came with some great looking leather jackets, as well as exciting bombers. There were also some great pieces of knitwear, with a nice mixture of colours that varied between the conventional and also the more eye-catching. It was certainly one of our favourite collections in Paris.
There was plenty of monochrome on show for Alexander Wang. The collection also included cropped trousers and lots of leather, as well as quilting. Work wear also appeared in the collection and there were plenty of cargo trousers synthetic fabrics on show.
As we would expect from Paul Smith, there was plenty of colour and signature British tailoring, as well as a little extravagance. The show was in the Pompidou Centre in Paris and considering the graphic collection, this seemed very suitable. Essentially, the collection was a combination of off colour hues, amazing patterns and speckled tweed. All in all it came across as a wild and wacky mixture of tailoring that managed to look extremely impressive and notable at the same time.
So, we’re certainly looking forward to late 2013 after seeing some of the amazing extravagance, as well as understated convention and are getting our best striped socks prepared.
