Paris Fashion Week Menswear AW15: Valentino

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli's geometric proposal

Held at the iconic Hotel Salomon de Rothschild, Valentino's AW15 men's offerings will set your heart aflutter, from the vivid shapes, to the bold colour blocking and delicate graphics of planets and butterflies...

Men's Fashion Week in Paris kicked off to a delightful start yesterday as Valentino's creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli unveiled another outstanding collection for the Italian fashion house – loaded with elegance, flattering shapes and eye-catching graphics.

Inspired by the Ballet Russes, Australian artist Esther Stewart's geometric motifs, futurism, cubism and non-conformist artistic movements, Chiuri and Picciolo had a lot to work with this AW15 season.

With twinkling electronic beats setting the ethereal and futuristic mood of the show, the first batch of models strode out wearing assortments of grey and white suiting, which went from a patterned wool coat worn over a black suit to a monochrome camouflage duffle coat. By the fourth look colour started to appear with blue hues and burgundy, with cosy cardigans were worn with black skinny ties tucked inside and heavy jackets featuring slanted asymmetrical leather pockets (an art form in itself).

Playing with different types of outerwear for Autumn/Winter 15, Valentino's jackets and coats ranged from silk bombers with embroidered butterflies or solar system motifs to long trenchcoats in plaid, which were worn on top of more plaid.

Ending on a strong and formal note, three-piece suits made from beautiful shimmering silks and repeated butterfly and camo prints closed the show, while accessories – one of Valentino's fortes – came in the shape of leather geometric-pattern backpacks (queue Stewart's painting) and modern envelope clutches.
