Paris Men’s Fashion Week to Feature Six Physical Shows

Dior And Hermès Scheduled For Live Shows During Paris Men’s Fashion Week Spring 2022

French President Emmanuel Macron began opening up France last month, enabling the exciting return of in-person shows. Dior Men’s and Hermès will be among the six designers opting for physical runway shows during Paris Men’s Fashion Week.  

Bluemarble, Casablanca, LGN Louis-Gabriel Nouchi, and Officine Générale are also listed as invitation only, in-person shows on the calendar published by Paris Fashion Week Organizer Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode. The official calendar currently lists 72 brands, with digital shows and presentations running from June 22 through to June 27. The Fédération will also share the live shows on the digital platform created in response to the coronavirus pandemic last year.

Some of the most prestigious designers scheduled for digital platforms that will show during Men’s PFW include Dries Van Noten, GmbH, Issey Miyake, Jil Sander, Lanvin, Loewe, Louis Vuitton, Rick Owens and Yohji Yamamoto.

Other notable names on the calendar include 1017 Alyx 9SM by Matthew Williams, Dunhill, Isabel Marant, JW Anderson, Lemaire, Paul Smith, Thom Browne, Ungaro, Vetements, Walter Van Beirendonck, and Y/Project.

New brands to show this season are Georges Wendell, a French brand reinvented by Afterhomework founder Pierre Kaczmarek; Mr. Saturday, a Canadian label founded by Joey Gollish; British menswear label Gravalot, and Antwerp designer Jan-Jan Van Essche. 

Courrèges will also be making a return to menswear after a long haitus, under the new artistic direction of Nicolas Di Felice. The men’s line was originally launched in 1973 by founder André Courrèges, but was discontinued in 1986.

Directly following the men’s shows, Paris Couture Week is scheduled for July 5th to the 8th. Eight brands have opted for physical runway events, with a limited number of guests – including Azzaro Couture, Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, Giorgio Armani Privé, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vaishali S. and Zuhair Murad. Twenty-five other 25 brands will continue with a digital format, despite the loosening of covid restrictions.
