More from Paris.

Perhaps my last post, AW13 Menswear Roundup, was a little premature. A couple more collections have emerged from the Paris catwalks that have really caught my eye. Long-standing favourite Lanvin kept the tailoring trend up with sculptural suits in subtle tones. More architectural suits came down the runway at Dior Homme and the cinched waist was a new, interesting silhouette for men.

Tommy Ton captures a very stylish conversation on the streets of Paris.

As stated earlier, tailoring was a key theme at the Lanvin show and Alber Elbaz really exaggerated silhouettes showing oversized jackets with large lapels in grey tones and my favourite: rust. Speaking of colour, there were similar key colours at Lanvin as there was at Fendi: lots of black and grey with splashes of neutral, earthy tones - definitely my favourite, so chic. Another highlight in the collection was an ink blue leather shirt. Ink blue really is going to be big next season.

Kris Van Assche presented a beautiful monochrome collection over at Dior Homme. Blue was the only colour featured apart from the blood red, cult symbols on a few of the pieces. The collection, which referenced Andrew Niccol's Gattaca, was "fashion for tomorrow" according to Van Assche. Adhering to the 'skinny fit' trend, some of the looks were cinched in at the waist in true Dior style, however the look was not feminine just architectural and on the whole, beautiful.

With the Men's fashion weeks over, it's now onto Couture. Check back soon for my highlights of Spring/Summer 2013 Couture.
