Style Recap: Paris Menswear SS20

Virgil Abloh Nike Dunk Lateral Side Shot

Another Paris Menswear week has come and gone. People who are into the fine tailoring, deconstructed looks and contemporary workwear waited patiently for their favourite designer to livestream their latest. Not only was there countless looks and street style galore, but sneakerheads were up and about – sussing the colabs and scoping out their latest cop.

Now becoming a main source of income for a number of fashion houses, high-end creps had Paris going nuts. We had going silly, doing his thing, and  going from 0-95 real quick. Paris had a lot to offer, so we've selected some of the highlights and curated a nice little recap.

Strap on your seatbelts, Paris just changed the game!

The absolute standout was the reinterpretation of their classic Manhattan Sneaker. With Russel Westbrook, basketball's most fashionable man taking over their IG story, Acne Studios displayed the new slim iteration. They're definitely strolling down the right path with translucent uppers, fitting right into recent offerings from Team Swoosh.

Hard-hitting looks, the mostly-black Salomon S/Lab XT-6 ADV blends in well with the collection. Subtle details such as yellow hits on the collar, mudguard, and branded insoles make for a timeless colab.

Keep an eye on Salomon retailers, these will be dropping alongside the French brand's other SS20 offerings.

'Justified Error' was the name given to the Japanese designer's Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Alongside the bright colours and contrasting patterns was a slew of not only Original Sole sneakers but other new silhouettes that ooze the Mihara's aesthetic.

As we discussed with him in a , although his footwear may seem sculptural, all of them are meant to be worn and are extremely practical.

We're looking forward to the whole collection hitting stores very soon.

Rei Kawakubo was in the kitchen, cooking up three low-key colourways that paired well with the statement suits and skirts.

Will people go crazy over these like they did for the previous CDG x Nike colabs? We'll have to wait and see when they hit stores.

We recently saw some patriotic Purcells, and chunky ERX 260s (which were brought back in all-white from SS20). Now The Soloist gives us some modified Chuck 70s.

Exuding futuristic vibes, they remain toned-down despite the lettering on the toe cap, and branding on the lateral.

Sneakers have also been an integral part of the new Dior, with the monogram rife throughout, familiar faces such as the B23 were shown during SS20.

On a bed of pink sand, translucent boots and crazy-coloured creps reigned supreme. With collection after collection for the French house selling like hot cakes, will there be another ?

Although Virgil did create a small offering of footwear at his SS20 show, the Dunks were definitely the standout shoe.

Suss it all above and stay tuned for release details to surface, we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we get wind of anything.

Completely murdering out the upper, are these better than the originals?
