Band of Outsiders Puts on a 60-Hour Show and More Paris Men’s Spring 2013

The last leg of the Spring 2013 Men's shows kicked off in Paris with a bang. Here's a look at some of the most notable shows thus far.

Band of Outsiders: The Spring 2013 Men’s shows in Paris got off to a much buzzed-about start when Band of Outsiders designer Scott Sternberg announced an unusual format for his first Paris show. Right now in a Paris gallery window, a single model is showing off Band of Outsiders' entire Spring collection, changing into the different looks over the course of sixty hours. The whole thing is being streamed live on the brand’s website and runs through 9:30 p.m. on Friday.

3.1 Phillip Lim: Mixing loose, clean silhouettes with baroque-inspired separates gave Lim's laid-back collection a sophisticated, fashion-forward edge. 

Louis Vuitton: Dapper double breasted suits and nautical-inspired wetsuit-like two piece outfits were presented alongside uber luxe numbers, including a crocodile hooded pullover. If this collection doesn't give you the urge to board a private jet to St. Barts, what will?

Raf Simons: "Who wears short shorts…" and with slits no less! This season, playing off of the short suits he presented last season, Simons showed a rainbow of trim cropped bottoms, loose coats, cropped jackets, and dress shirts with elongated and pointed collars.
