SNOWCATS
Paris: Kim Jones showed a collection of sportswear basics, suits, and formalwear, all highlighted by subtle use of luxe materials, exotic prints and precisely classic tailoring. Standard double-breasted overcoats came highlighted by tonal leopard print that evoked the elusive snow leopard, while other coats featured similarly patterned fur trim on the collars. Other snow-ready gear included cropped, fur-hooded bombers, puffer coats and a even a fur-trimmed poncho. Jones’ cut his suits cleanly and presented them in recently popular traditional patterns like windowpane check, while his formalwear took another course sporting outlandish florals and midnight blue velvet. This trifecta of sportswear, suits, and formalwear all added up to a traditionalist’s wardrobe that revealed sly details and wit upon second glance. —Andrew Luecke
