The City of Lights was shining a little dimmer this season as the Paris menswear Fashion Week – Fall 2010 – came to a close over the weekend.
The metallic wave of shiny, futuristic fabric that has filled the runway on previous seasons was nowhere to be seen this time. Instead the runway was awash with more masculine colours, outstanding detail and more wearable garments. However, there were still some creative visionaries leading the way with their unique perspective on menswear.
TRENDS FOR FALL 2010
TREND: Sharp tailoring, clever detail and skinny suits.

Even the models were skinny which seemed to be a continuing trend on the catwalk from previous seasons. The tailoring was sharp and had some very clever detail to give each garment some fresh features. The suits came out very sexy and more masculine than previous seasons making them more wearable for a range of occasions.
TREND: A splash of colour.

A splash of blue was a stand out to behold on the catwalk. It made a refreshing change from the black, grey and green which featured heavily throughout the week. Colours at this year’s event were more masculine with a splash of colour used for emphasis.
