A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Junya Watanabe piped Oasis through the sprawling salons of a hotel particulier in Paris' 16th district, delivering an Autumn show rife with clashing cultures that realigned his menswear with the soulful punk aesthetic of recent womenswear triumphs. Although there was no avoiding the quilted hunting jackets and parkas that are today his menswear bread and butter, Watanabe mixed up the offering with teddy boy tailoring in flannel and corduroy, pairing frock coats and trim blazers with fat, knotted ties and polka dot shirting. With zany, synthetic wigs worn under smart bowler hats, he went hell-for-leather, patching checks, hides and pinstripes across raw denim and closed the show with spidery grunge knitwear - both revisiting and trumping his own signatures to rock star effect.
