PARIS — Bold, new ideas and saleable collections are turning the City of Light into a fashion capital for men.
“Paris is terrific; it’s definitely having a moment,” said Eric Jennings, vice president and fashion director of men’s for Saks Fifth Avenue. “There is energy and excitement and youthful exuberance.” Paris used to be “very avant-garde and directional,” he added, “but now the collections have also become commercially viable without losing their edge.” Although the bulk of his business is still coming out of Milan, Jennings said, “We are investing more in the Paris collections.”
