Highlights From Metro's Men's Fashion Week S/S '25 Coverage

Let Metro's fashion week correspondent Paul Sunga take you through Men's Fashion Week!

One of the most thrilling aspects of Men’s Fashion Week is the constant sense of motion. You're always on the go, from one show to the next, with barely a moment to catch your breath. Yet, it's in this frenetic pace that I find a profound connection to the present moment. Every second is filled with excitement and discovery. There's no time to dwell on the past or worry about the future—it's all about what's happening right now.

I started the week at the Louis Vuitton headquarters for the re-see of the Men’s S/S 2025 where Pharrell Williams continues on his global LVers journey. 


The travel theme permeated Louis Vuitton's collection, staying true to the brand's roots. Inspired by modern travelers, particularly aviation pilots, the collection featured cropped tailored jackets, bombers, and flight suits. Starting with monochromatic tones of black, brown, and grey, it transitioned to vibrant greens and blues, reflecting a global mindset. Updated Damier and camouflage patterns were introduced, including a snake-o-flage motif seen on Pharrell's jacket and a map-o-flage design. The collection also embraced the football world, with a jacket made of soccer balls and jersey-like pieces.

Just a few floors up from the re-see was the launch of a new LV fragrance. The scent, LVERS, arrives just in time for summer, capturing sunlight and fresh, woody aromas. Created with perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, LVERS honors the house's codes while breaking gender norms with a neutral fragrance featuring cedar and sandalwood. Its main ingredient, galbanum, is a unique gum resin from an Iranian plant.

I then attended the Isabel Marant Men’s Spring-Summer 2025 collection, a folk-inspired wardrobe infused with romance. The style blends rock and romance with paisley floral prints. Graphic jacquards, earthy tones, and washed fabrics feature in jeans, jackets, and scarves, reminiscent of a well-traveled life. Ikat-patterned knitwear and intricately embroidered denim tell a story bridging East and West, street and underground.


Finally, to end day one, I made my way to the Kenzo Show where NIGO showcased his Spring/Summer 2025 collection in Paris' Jardin Du Palais Royal. The 52-look collection brought KENZO signatures to a safari theme, transforming the atmospheric venue and welcoming hundreds of guests, from Heart Evangelista, Pusha T, Soo Joo, Pharrell, and many more.

Day 2 started with HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE, the backdrop was the Mobilier National, where guests patiently waited for the show to start.  The collection focused on wind, inspired by the movement of kites and parachutes. It featured lightweight and sheer materials that billow beautifully.


Later in the afternoon, the Amiri show turned into a cool mix of fashion and music, with celebs like Maluma, French Montana, and Kyle Kuzma making an appearance. Mike Amiri presented a collection that brought retro Hollywood to the runway. Every model strutted with swag in oversized suits, dramatic peaked lapels, flared pants, and crossover or continental ties. Bedazzled blazers add extra flair to modern tuxedos.

Day 3 was the much-awaited Loewe show, star-studded celebrities from Evan Peters, Emily Ratajkowski, Kit Connor, and Jeff Goldblum with wife Emilie Goldblum entered La Gard Republicaine. This is the show that brings the energy back into the week. Jonathan Anderson continued to evolve Loewe's codes for Spring/Summer 2025, exploring micro and macro scales in a striking vertical silhouette. 


The collection was defined by dynamic movement—trousers shifting between front and back, coats frozen mid-open. Knitted trousers and metal tanks had an armored, protective quality. Luxury was expressed through opulent materials like mother-of-pearl.

Finally, I wrapped up the week with Sacai, where Chitose Abe showed off a James Dean-inspired collection. The runway had cool collabs with Nike, J.W. Weston, WTAPS, and Levi’s. Dean's iconic style came through with boxy leather jackets paired with t-shirts, oversized trousers, and vintage car and flower prints, mixing modern vibes with nostalgic touches. Celebrities in attendance were Serena Williams, Pharrell, and Eric Nam, to name a few.
