Paris Mode Masculine P/E 2012 Review by Damien Neva

Buried under Magazine Mountain is an urgent sticky note that reads “Paris Mode Masculine PE 2012! N’oubliez pas!” The little French I do know has resulted either in a chastening glass of champagne in the face or a chastening glass sans champagne in the face. Needless to say trotting out the language with which William conquered England in 1066 is not my wont. But, talk of French and fall 2011 couture winding down today has me thinking this morning would be a good time to once and for all bury those increasingly moribund Paris menswear shows. The headlines from Milano were clearly translated for our francophone friends for it was they who duly followed suit and also booked Adrien Sahores on the most shows of the week — thirteen (13) to raise his total to an astounding twenty-five (25) for the season. Rare is the model who does well in either Milano or Paris and rarer still is a master of both cities in all their disparity. Adrien’s Twitter hashtag of #ThisGuyMan now truly makes sense, no? Adrien’s feat is followed closely behind by Adrian Bosch and Aiden Andrews, both of whom featured in eight (8) shows with the latter notching fifteen (15) for the entire season. Elsewhere there were impressive openers by Francisco Lachowski (Issey Miyake), Lyle Lodwick (Comme des Garçons), Sen Mitsuji (Phillip Lim 3.1), and Zakaria Khiare (Paul Smith). All told, the Paris shows for our guys weren’t too shabby. Until next January, it’s au revoir for this menswear season in Paris… .

I think he is gorgeous, I love his blue eyes and the roundness of his face.
