Paris Fashion Week did not disappoint this season. We can expect to see some great things in stores next spring: dadcore couture, for one, elevated normcore, for another, as well as holey shirts and textured colors. One particularly memorable collection was the debut line from Arthur Avellano, which saw classic menswear pieces reinvented in fetishistic textiles, from leather to spandex in modern, baggy silhouettes.
According to Fucking Young, the line is inspired by Joel Schumacher's movie Chute Libre, and focuses on the removal of inhibiton and exploration of carnal desire. Delivering eroticism in a very subtle approach, Avellano's pieces are still decidedly commercial. There's oversized puffer jackets, wide-legged trousers, shiny trenches, and cropped bombers--all staples on recent runways.
The palette was a fairly traditional range of reds, golds, grays, blues and purples, and the silhouettes contemporary. The collection really nailed it in terms of its near-imperceptible nods to underground grunge sexuality. Take a look at our favorites, below:
