We don't often write about men's accessories in these parts, but the manbags (and gloves and belts and sunglasses and shoes...) that just debuted in Paris for Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 are too good to pass up. I don't personally know too many men who carry clutches, but most of the hand-held...

Susan and Paul Smith Loammi, Susan and Andrej After the show, Paul talked to reporters and well-wishers. He was upbeat and exuberant, probably thrilled to have another successful show under his belt. Meanwhile, we were caught up in the flock of great-looking models making quick changes...

His presentations are similarly offbeat, and this season's men's show in Paris was no exception. Susan in front of the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild His choice of venue this time was the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, a late-18th century house near the Arc de Triomphe. This beautiful spot has...

In my half-Japanese home, it was names like Yamamoto, Kawakubo, Kenzo and Miyake that comprised the familial sartorial shrine, the names of my mother's fashion legends from her faraway homeland. So when I received a ticket to Issey Miyake this season, my first ever from this Japanese guard...

He also has a fondness for Paris: last season, he showed his men's collection at Maxim's, and this time he chose the Galerie de Minéralogie, a musty, 19th-century museum in the Jardin des Plantes. It's a creepy spot at the best of times, made gloomier by the cold winter night. And then Thom's...

Susan (in her own Issey Miyake jacket) takes in the show Issey Miyake isn't a flashy status brand, but it's definitely meant for guys who know a thing or two about personal style. Chez Miyake, you can find understatement, edginess or a combination of both. The choice is up to you. ––...

Susan Tabak home The very first show on the Paris Men's calendar this season was Y. Project by Yohan Serfaty–an odd name, but an interesting collection. Serfaty cuts leather or cloth with mathematical precision, making pieces that look both razor-sharp, yet molded to the body–and textured to...

Hermès for Fall 2011 is no exception–Véronique sent out one impeccable look after another, appealing to both practical and extravagant masculine tastes. Her classic pea coat, for example, instead of being made from heavy wool, looks brand-new when cut from navy calfskin. And, in her hands,...

Susan Tabak home Issey Miyake, as a brand, dates from 1970–and those famous pleats made their debut in the '80s–but lately, various design teams have worked hard to maintain Miyake's signatures while pushing the collection forward. And for many seasons now (this one included), editors and...

Susan Tabak home Without a doubt, the Lanvin men's show has become so influential, it's now one of the most-anticipated défilés on the Paris schedule. Under the guidance of Lanvin's creative director, Alber Elbaz, and his menswear designer, Lucas Ossendrijver, each collection seems to find...
