Paris Men's Fashion Week SS17

From runway to moodboard

Paris Men's Fashion Week SS17 From runway to moodboard

Cristobal Balenciaga said "a couturier must be an architect for design, a sculptor for shape, a painter for color, a musician for harmony, and a philosopher for temperance". 

Because fashion is not only about fabrics and clothes, it is much more. It's an art that embodies different disciplines, diverse inspirations, changing reflections which vary depending on who creates it or looks at it.

During this Parisian week, while Bill Cunningham (the "father" of street photography) left us and Maria Grazia Chiuri is said to be about to start a new adventure as Dior's creative director, on the catwalk we saw bohemians, dancers, cadets, world travelers, romantic boys, young explorers, rockers.

Here are the most interesting inspirations behind this Paris Fashion Week SS17.
