1. Ludovic De Saint Sernin
Glamorous, sensual and very French—these are, perhaps, the best words to describe Ludovic De Saint Sernin. ESAA Duperré graduate and an ex-member of the Balmain design team, De Saint Sernin launched his brand in 2017 and was selected as a finalist of the LVMH Prize in the same year.
Two of his collections were shown during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, and were reminscent of early Yves Saint Laurent and Paco Rabanne looks. Signature cinched waist tailoring, flowy satin suits along with bold body chains and Swarovski-encrusted underwear (because nothing says luxury quite like a bedazzled speedo) redefined masculinity on the Fall/Winter 2019 runway.
Pieces like cropped-fit jackets and laced-up pants create a clean and unconventional silhouette that can be surprisingly wearable, especially when coupled with an oversized T-shirt or your favourite tank top. At the same time, the designer’s masterful creations with leather and silk will give you just the right amount of bling for your upcoming date at The Butterfly Room.
