Guess Which Outerwear Stole the Spotlight at #PMFW’s Street Style Scene

Here's a clue: puffer up, buttercup! Disclaimer: there are no prizes for right answers.

People in fashion are a special breed. While most people in a normal state of mind would detest the cold, the fashion set thrives when the temperature drops. Well, ykno, normal is totally overrated in fashion anyway. Sartorially speaking, the colder months call for layering as a practical necessity. This means more room for experimentation. Colour blocking, a play on textures, mixing proportions, throwing on fancy headgear…the possibilities are endless.

At the Paris Men’s Fashion Week, the weather kept the stylistic ambition of every style maven alive. The street style circuit pulled out all the stops – one would expect nothing less at the French capital of fashion. Across the board, a spectrum of outerwear was paraded across the Parisian streets. Coats, jackets, parkas, you name it, the Parisian street style set had it.

Amidst the eclectic mix of outerwear choices, one in particular stood out: puffer coats. If you had thought the ’90s were over, you could not have been further from the truth. Historically, down jackets have been a thing of necessity rather than the statement-making pièce de résistance to an outfit. But the details work itself out. It’s hard to go unnoticed when you’re waddling around like a human reincarnation of the Michelin man – the camera shutters, naturally, go wild. Mo puff, mo better.

This season, beyond oversized iterations, puffer jackets came in fancy skins – denim, included. With every season, follows a valuable lesson in style. At the Paris Men’s Fashion Week run, we’ve gathered not to underestimate the potential of good ‘ol utilitarian wear.
