James Hillman’s collection was a sleek and polished parade of grey tailored menswear. Inspired by the 59 Bike Club and an admiration for clean elements of the Teddy Boy look. The finale belonged to Florain Jayet and his silhouette-changing collection. Inspired by the futuristic concepts of Paco Rabanne and Theirry Mugler, garments are bold, fitted and highly structured shapes with a palette based on the silver shiny colors of metal.
