Lanvin -

REFINED RUGGED For F/W 10 creative director Alber Elbaz and menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver departed from the usual romance at Lanvin, and were instead inspired by the tough, active-infused elements of the street. The collection contained its signature mix of luxurious and technical materials, this time including nylon sleeves on dense wool suits, unfinished seams, and wide knitted or velcro-wrapped belts. ...

Dunhill -

GENTLEMANLY EXPEDITION Over the last few seasons, designer Kim Jones has done an excellent job at making Dunhill relevant as a viable, directional label for the men's market. With the F/W 10 show taking place at Paris' Palais de Tokyo and an invitation that included replicas of vintage postcards, it was clear that the inspiration was a sepia-tinged nostalgia for adventure. ...

Dior Homme -

COMFORTABLE GLAM Creative Director Kris Van Assche continues to find his own identity for Dior Homme, especially challenging after former designer Hedi Slimane single-handedly created an entirely new silhouette for menswear, with an ultra-skinny, punk-edged aesthetic. For F/W 10, the fit was anything but lean, with billowing long coats and a collection that was all about "quality and comfort." A slightly ...

Raf Simons -

 ACTIVE CLASSIC Designer Raf Simons seems to take classic concepts of menswear and put them under a microscope, where he distills pieces down to their most directional and sophisticated. The F/W 10 collection continued down the road of his last few collections — the search for the perfect suit. This time, active elements like Velcro, snaps and magnets were used as ...

Ann Demeulemeester -

DARK ROMANCE Ann Demeulemeester was turning out chic vampires way before movies like Twilight burst onto the scene.  Her F/W 10 collection was full of rich textures and dramatic layers with, as always, a bit of punk priestess Patti Smith thrown in for good measure. Slim pants with a roomy rise were ornamented with dangling chains and tucked into military ...

Kris Van Assche -

GRUNGE CORPS A dark and directional interpretation of military uniforms informed Kris Van Assche's F/W 10 collection. After being one of the first to successfully introduce active influences to the runway over the last two seasons, the Belgium designer warmed up his assortment with more luxurious fabrics while still maintaining his trademark easy silhouette.
