What with J.W. Anderson's nutty gender-bending collection and Kenzo's air travel-inspired looks, we're paying close attention to the men's collections. As the designers turned out ravishing looks, so did showgoers. Street style in Paris and Milan were particularly on-point: studies in ways to creatively keep warm, full of color and quirky detail. An overwhelmingly male crowd, it's making us wish that the dude show attendees got a bit more attention during the women's collections—what fun their outfits are! It's reminded us that men look just as chic with "it" designer bags in tow and that fashion risks are not relegated to just one gender. Fifty of our favorites follow.
