I started my second day of Men’s Paris Fashion Week by getting to Issey Miyake almost half an hour late—no thanks to my poor sense of direction. I have been to Place des Vosges the day before, so I knew it was going to be peanuts finding the place. Little did I know I would be exiting a different Metro Station. Since I didn’t have a map, I ended up asking people around how to get to the venue. When I finally found the Issey Miyake Showroom, I was on cloud nine because they were still setting up.
I found a spot at the very crowded venue. It was not the best spot to take photos, but I’d take it anytime. Issey Miyake’s collection was indeed one of my favorites. I have never imagined myself trying the color-blocking trend but, after this show, I sort of changed my mind (I won’t be jumping on the color-blocking trend anytime now, but maybe when I get a bit older and want to try out something colorful for a change. I’m still stuck in my goth ninja mode). The perfect juxtaposition of bold colors and interesting prints made everything from the collection very pret-a-porter. I particularly adore the oversized trousers, the skorts (men’s skirts), and those mandals (men’s sandals) look that’s just perfect for summer!
