January 2011 Mens fashion week hosted in paris brought many interesting looks. Double breasted blazers, tweed, and a forties detective look filled the stage. Not to many color options with menswear this Fall 2011; Color pallets with black and grey with a hint of paprika swept the runways. Loose fitting trousers and long coats, story of the jewish rabbi. Lanvin (Picture Above) uses the doubled breasted coat with a non traditional silhouette, asymmetrical sweaters, and a chic fadora. "The tension arose from the face-off between the classicism of the Old World and the urgency of the New." Tim Blanks stated on Style.com.

Spring 2011 RTW has struck a fun and interesting close. Prada, Jil Sander's and Maison Martin Margiela brought simple silhouettes, structure and print; Lets not forget the boy like, girls. The fashion industry has been hit by an androgynous lap of men and women. A cultivating transgender becomes the face of Givenchy. Making things a bit more multifaceted with woman wearing mens clothing shaped to the beautiful silhouettes of the womans body. Men with faces so beautiful and women taking masculinity, we no longer know who should be brought on set.
