Unsurprisingly, fringe was also popular on the menswear runways in Paris last week. We saw it everywhere from Givenchy and Lanvin to Ann Demeulemeester. Some brands, like Ann Demeulemeester, used long, flowing fringe, while others, like Lanvin, kept it short.

Many menswear designers in Paris paid tribute to the City of Lights with their fall/winter collections, and most cited the terror attacks that took place late last year as their reason for doing so. "Paris is the City of Light and I want to bring back those lights," Balmain's designer told WWD. The designer accomplished this with garments that were heavily embellished with crystals. Kim Jones, men's artistic director at Louis Vuitton, told WWD he had "Paris, past and present" on his mind when designing his collection.

Military-inspired looks covered the menswear runways in Paris this season — we spotted them everywhere from Phillip Lim and Acne Studios to Loewe, Dries Van Noten and Louis Vuitton. We especially loved Dries Van Noten's deconstructed military parks that were sliced at the waist and Louis Vuitton's outerwear featuring utility pockets.
