Men’s Fashion Week – Paris 2012

Last month was Men’s Fashion Week in Paris where a number of high-end designers and up and coming designers showcased their spring/summer 2013 collections. Within the ready to wear collection was men’s designer underwear from designer Alexis Mabille.
Alexis Mabille’s collection of underwear styles is sold under the Hom label and combines two different genres – ‘ready to wear’ and stylish men’s underwear. Designed for people of any build and body condition, Mabille’s designs have an emphasis on the body. Using design, colour and comfort, his collection of designer men’s underwear has a touch of freshness and heighted sensuality – making it a delight to own or receive as a gift.
For spring/summer 2013, the collection designed by Alexis Mabille for Hom centred around the colours white, grey and black for a modern yet timeless look. Amongst the styles was a pair of eye-catching trunk style boxer shorts which feature a heavy geometric black and white design. These were completed by a black and white striped waistband and prominent branding to convey their designer nature.
Also in the collection which was highlighted on the runway was a pair of briefs which also sported a striking white and black pattern, this time probably inspired by 60s prints. As well as bold designs, there are a few more subtle styles of men’s underwear too. One design ran throughout a number of underwear styles including boxer shorts, trunks and briefs. They featured a light grey background teamed with darker grey panels to the sides which created a diamond effect. This effect is seen on a number of outer garments by other designers for the upcoming 2013 season so ties in nicely with this core theme.
No doubt a number of other designer men’s underwear brands will take note of the black, white and grey colour trend and release pieces in their collection with a similar styling for spring/summer.
