Wear Your Head

Clothes are an a excellent way to make a first impression, we know, but recent collections at Paris men’s fashion week have given us few ideas to make a rather excellent second impression.
Few designers were using noticeable headwear this season, but none of them was as dark and scary as Rei Kawakubo. Returning to certain pieces and elements in her own Comme des Garçons‘ archive, Kawakubo made models’ hair look like a strange gas mask, forming holes and shapes for models to see (and hopefully to breath).

Bauhaus and basketball were the two main inspirations of Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci this season, creating a geometric sport collection, with instant-iconic pieces to become next year’s best-sellers. In the show models’ heads were wrapped in elegant nets, echoing the urban basketball court fence behind them and creating a new Homme Fatale look.

Rick Owens‘ new collection consisted of long leather tunics with minimalist cuts and interventions and high leather boots. To complete the look models were wearing nun-like cashmere head wraps.

Adding a political statements was Walter Van Beirendonck, with the assistance of milliner Stephen Jones, who sent an anti-racism message to the fashion world, in the form of feathered Native American-inspired headwear.
