Esquire in Paris - Louis Vuitton

Though tones have been consistently muted across this season's collections, when colour comes, it comes with gall, as was so aptly demonstrated at Louis Vuitton, in Paris this afternoon.

Blacks, charcoals, greys and burnt browns dominated the show, found in silken flamenco dancer shirts, fur gilets, shawl collar peacoats, loosely draped tailored trousers and - you guessed it - velvet suits.

Orange was the only other flash of colour across the collection, found in the occasional pair of trousers, down-padded puffa suit jackets (not dissimilar from Thom Browne's at Moncler Gamme Bleu) and the occasional pair of sunglasses - a clever little device which only helped to highlight the monochromatic collection's acute attention to detail.

The adaptable trend? We're loathed to say it again, but tightly tailored velvet jackets are going to be big news next winter. Otherwise, a more relaxed approach to tailoring, shawl collar pea coats, double breasted jackets and wider experimentation with material. Expect to be wearing fake fur-a-plenty next season. No, really.
