Paris mens fashion week highlights: Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Comme des Garcons

Explore day three of the men's collections at Paris Fashion Week with our roundup of images, videos and reviews of the top shows.

Maison Margiela


John Galliano carried over the glamour theme from last year's womenswear couture show, with trench coats aplenty wrapped effortlessly round nude bodies accessorised with shower caps, sleek skin and hair, tattooed chests and oversized tailoring, sprinkled with pops of cheerful yellow to compliment the set.

Alexander McQueen


Sarah Burton embraced gothic romance for this season's McQueen menswear collection, with red and black as the predominant colour scheme. We saw vampiric pinstripe suits with long black coats tied round the waist, bold Argyle knitwear, and punky skinhead styling complete with shaved heads and asymmetric earrings.

Comme Des Garcons Homme Plus


The main pull of the show was of course the gigantic fabric dinosaur skull headpieces worn with many of the looks, but what about the clothes themselves? Rei Kawakubo did not disappoint, showcasing kailedoscopic and comic-strip prints, clean white sculptural tailoring, and new gender-neutral loose-fititng trousers and shorts shapes.
