This season, Paris fashion week has gone online. While we’ll miss strolling the Palais Royal and sipping martinis at the Hôtel Costes, there is one upside to this season’s events: everyone’s invited. It’s not quite fashion week as usual—some are taking it to the virtual runway, others are opting for a more abstract representation of their vision for next spring. Here, we’ll be bringing you a front row seat to a few of our favorites. Keep checking back as we update this with the latest debuts.
Hermès Menswear Spring 2021
Originally aired as a live stream, Hermès debuted its spring menswear collection in scenes from the backstage preparations of a typical runway show. Read more about the collection here.
Berluti Menswear Spring 2021
For his spring 2021 collection, Berluti creative director Kris Van Assche collaborated with Brian Rochefort, an American sculptor, on a variety of boldly colored prints. In this video, the two artists discuss their partnership and preview key pieces from the new collection.
Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring 2021
This rather trippy animated video is actually a prelude to Virgil Abloh’s spring 2021 collection, providing a first glimpse of a show that is scheduled to take place in Shanghai on August 6th.
Amiri Menswear Spring 2021
Mike Amiri takes you inside his Los Angeles studio, where he shows the process behind his spring 2021 collection: sketching, assembling a moodboard, selecting swatches. Amiri reflects on his brand’s journey along with several notable fans including J Balvin, Future and Kyle Kuzma.
Dries Van Noten Menswear Spring 2021
Is psychedelia shaping up to be a trend for next spring? In another decidedly trippy video, Dries Van Noten gives us one minute and twenty-three seconds of model Jonas Glöer furiously air-drumming in an oversized suit.
Casablanca Menswear Spring 2021
In this unabashedly gleeful video, designer Charaf Tajer shows his signature silk shirts and other retro resort-wear in an imagined tropical paradise. It’s a colorful, cheery collection (finally, some clothes!) dripping in pearls—and swagger.
Rhude Menswear Spring 2021
For his second “showing” at Paris Fashion Week, designer Rhuigi Villaseñor created a video with models lolling about a modernist home and gardens. The clothes—a mix of streetwear with luxe touches like bandana print embroidery—ooze the SoCal attitude that’s earned him fans like LeBron James and Lenny Kravitz.
Dunhill Menswear Spring 2021
Although it doesn’t actually show any new clothes, this video—a splicing of a 1980s ad for the brand’s Jermyn Street store with footage from runway shows of the past few seasons—is worth a watch just for the kitsch factor.
Dior Men Spring 2021
Dior Men creative director Kim Jones collaborated with Ghanaian artist Amoaka Boafo for his spring collection. It makes its debut via a two-part video: the first half provides a look at Boafa’s work and studio, the second half shows the new Dior menswear that Boafa inspired.
Thom Browne Menswear Spring 2021
While Thom Browne’s fashion shows are usually fantastical, theatrical productions, this pared back video is almost equally striking. In it, American singer Moses Sumney performs a haunting rendition of the Olympic Hymn (in a sequined sarong—the only clothing on view).
Lemaire Menswear Spring 2021
Alongside their women’s collection, designers Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran showed a quietly stellar lineup of the understated—but still interesting—designs for which they’ve come to be known. With roomy silhouettes in calming neutrals, it closes out Paris Fashion Week on a serene note.
