Dance and geometry merge during menswear week in Paris

PARIS (AP) — Dance, theater and geometry fused Thursday in the Paris Menswear Week episode as all eyes turned to Louis Vuitton’s fall-winter spectacle.

Here are some highlights for the Fall-Winter 2023-24 collections:


A twisting dance troupe performed on the runway against a backdrop of optically striped lighting that moved organically.

More than just spectacle, it introduced a geometric theme this season – how simple shapes can be folded to create more complex shapes – something the Japanese house explored in several separate sections using its signature techno pleating techniques.

The Homme Plisse Issey Miyake collection started with a beautiful, soft new jacket silhouette – in dazzling flashes – with cam-like shoulder pleats and warped tubular sleeves. Lines in the groove of the pleats gave the impression of complexity, even though the silhouettes themselves seemed minimalist.

Elsewhere, the idea of ​​simplicity yielding more than the sum of its parts was developed with flair in a style called the ‘edge coat’. The amorphous pleated garment resembled some kind of dark jellyfish, designed using triangular-shaped fabric that created a sublime three-dimensional shape.
