PARIS — Men’s wear is taking a page from women’s wear — at least when it comes to fabrics.
Buoyed by fleets of more fashion-conscious customers, high-end men’s wear designers here are turning to women’s wear for clues to elevate their collections. Sidestepping fancy frills and embellishments unlikely to raise their customers’ interest, they are increasingly embracing unique fabrics, cleverly melding creativity with comfort — an attribute that resonates well with their clientele.
