Lanvin's Men AW13 show today was the sum up of all the key elements of Lanvin's typical wardrobe into one catwalk.


The leather jackets, the wrapped suit jackets, the zips inserted in the coats and in the jackets or shirts. 


All coordinated by funky dual-tone shoes. And once again, as a constant theme of these AW13 collections, dual and mixed fabrics jackets and outerwear.


Here below our favourite picks.


But also there were few looks which were not fitting with the rest of the collection.


Here are the two we have picked for our "NO WAY" section.

Saint Laurent

Dark and darker.


This was the theme of the first Hedi Slimane's menswear collection for Saint Laurent.


Of course, all the clothes presented reminded of the famous male shape (linear and slim) that was already a typical signature of Hedi Slimane when he was head of the creative direction at Dior Homme.


The silhouette is still there, and is now underlined by the black colour, which is obsessively present in almost every look.


It is a Saint Laurent rocker male, with leather jackets, stretched denim, long black shirts buttoned up to the collar.


Very dark collection, unfortunately not too original as everyone else expected: many pieces were repetition of something you can already find in the main high-street retailers (and at a more reasonable price...)


However, even just for inspiration, these were our favourite looks amongst all.


So you would not be surprised to know we have also picked up a couple of things we did not think were the best description (or encryption, as you prefer) of the typical (Yves - sorry...) Saint Laurent style.


Here they are below...
