Men’s Top 10: Paris Collections Spring/Summer 2013

Best of Paris SS13The Men’s Spring/Summer 2013 Collections coming out of Paris last month were quite impressive. As with Milan, FW12 doom and gloom is gone and colour is back. Highlights included the fresh elegant active designs for Louis Vuitton under the direction of Kim Jones, the religious motifs of Givenchy, reworked camo à la DVN, Kris Van Assche’s blue period for Dior, Paul Smith’s daring optimistic collection, and finally the always entertaining Thom Browne and his nautical odyssey. Yes, there are a lot of nautical and naval themes for SS13. As always, it’s a tough task to narrow down the Paris Fashion Week’s Men’s Collections down to just a few favourites.  In alphabetical order, below is the It’s All Style To Me Top 10 List for Paris Men’s Fashion Week held July 27 – July 1, 2012:
