Chaotic good

Structured silhouettes need not be boring. Follow suit with the delightfully balanced looks spotted in Paris.

When it comes to structured silhouettes, there is a sense of order and science behind the sleek clean lines. And it's a beautiful sight when architectural shapes take the form of clothing, converting its wearer into a walking canvas of modern art. However, because of its geometry and sharp angles, the aesthetic is often followed by a tone of seriousness. Spotted on the streets of Paris, showgoers found a beautiful balance of chaos and structure.

Strict shapes were offset with haphazard details for a twist of exciting unpredictability that guarantee a double take. A boxy cropped jacket in grey paired with neon-printed trousers make the unexpected pair (look 1), your run-of-the-mill knitted sweater receives an artful layer (look 2), while a traditional rectangular top handle bag gets a second look with circular cut-outs (look 3). The best looks from Paris Men's Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2020 street style brought up a feeling of delightful confusion, bringing a sense of madness to the regular order. The key is in the balance.
