PARIS — Reflecting the trend for high-quality outerwear and somber styles, which resonated through the recent men’s runway shows in Paris, boutique trade fairs here featured statement and salable pieces that hit the right notes with retailers.
Buyers who attended the events, which included Tranoï and Capsule that ran in tandem with men’s fashion week, said they were eager to refresh their stock. Although some said budgets were on par with last year, others increased their open-to-buy by as much as 20 percent.
