Days 1 and 2 of Paris Men’s Fashion Week brought out various iterations of historical men: the soldier and the cowboy. Various successful efforts were made to class the styles up a bit, and luxurious fabrics and smart detailing and patterns did just that. Smooth leathers, warm furs, and always-cool utilitarian looks set the standard for a very stylish crop of men come next fall and winter.

In this Fall/Winter 2014 collection, design duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Picciolo sought to match tradition with modernity, making an effortless wardrobe for men next winter. Relaxed classic silhouettes injected a youthful feeling into the luxurious piece–luxury and couture being the name of the game for Valentin menswear this season. ┬áThe color palette consisted of the “masculine” colors of indigio, blue, gray, camel, and felt. The introduction of camouflage and a workman-like bodysuit added a contrast to the tailored suits and overcoats (some with incredible prints) in the collection.
