After picking up the inaugural Prix Karl Lagerfeld award in 2019, Hed Mayner returned to Paris to showcase his latest menswear range. The Israeli designer’s signature silhouettes returned in force, with generous cuts and immense layers abetted by lush textiles and Samuel Drira‘s thoughtful styling.
With a year of LVMH mentorship and a €150,000 ($165,000 USD) grant under his belt, Mayner’s latest range is an extension of the louche looks he’s crafted over the past several seasons, moving even further beyond the conventions of Western dress. Earth-toned blazers sport gargantuan lapels and knuckle-length sleeves, with wide shoulders that offset chunky turtlenecks and matching skirts, while shirts are extended to thigh-length or transformed into puffer jackets. Hefty wool all-in-ones recall wearable sleeping bags, complete with attached scarves; these offer a laid-back counterpart to the comparatively trim sweater vests and carrot-cut jeans.
