We recapped some of the best Japanese designers from Paris Fashion Week: Men's but there were plenty of other talented designers and brands on hand in the French capital over the last few days. Below we've rounded up some other brands, both established and some well on their way to the top echelons of the fashion world.
Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2019
Kim Jones showed Dior Homme's Fall/Winter 2019 collection on a stage setting that evoked the illusion of a conveyor belt full of mannequins. He added his technical flairs on accessories while also paying homage to classical French designs with capes and sashes. Photos: Filippo Fior/gorunway.com
1017 ALYX 9SM Fall/Winter 2019
Matthew Williams channels the environment and sustainability for 1017 ALYX 9SM's Fall/Winter 2019 collection titled 'Ex Nihilo' which translates to "out of nothing." In addition to continued collaborations with Nike and Mackintosh, this collection also features work with Majocchi and Blackmeans.
Boris Bidjan Saberi Fall/Winter 2019

WOOYOUNGMI Fall/Winter 2019
WOOYOUNGMI's art director Katie Chung explains that the Fall/Winter 2019 collection is a vehicle to show that the attitude of kids in Korea is no different than those in America and Europe in terms of wanting something unattainable. Tailored pieces and pieces that conceal identity were highlighted "to show their anger," Chung says. Photos: Alessandro Lucioni/gorunway.com
Ambush Fall/Winter 2019
Yoon Ahn told Vogue that Ambush's Fall/Winter 2019 collection is "loosely based on the movie 'The Man Who Fell to Earth'" and that she "wanted to freeze the beach." This idea of a traveling being from space translated to plenty of loose fits and comfy pieces in the new collection. Along with a space-inspired Converse collaboration, the collection also has a plethora of bling. Photos: Ambush
JW Anderson Fall/Winter 2019
JW Anderson's Fall/Winter 2019 collection showcased mismatched socks, a bunch of animal prints, furs and medieval-looking hoods in addition to the elongated staples. It embodied the chaotic times we live in and stressed the message of positive change. Photos: Filippo Fior/gorunway.com
