Amid all the well-cut suits and cheerfully bright sportswear, the menswear shows wrapped up with their signature tongue-in-cheek humor. This season, Band of Outsiders staged a show in a box, Versace sent belly shields down the runway, and Galliano featured an oversize lobster. And it wasn’t just the lobster that was surreal — headwear was straight out of a bedtime story with oversize top hats, Magritte-inspired bowlers, and a fireman-inspired hood. Jumpsuits, a big resort trend, popped up among the mens’ designers as well, proving to be the ultimate in easy his-and-hers dressing. Burberry, Lanvin, and Roberto Cavalli experimented with metallic fabrics, putting new meaning behind man candy. And, really, what would this slideshow be without a Magic Mike reference? Daks, Pierre Cardin, and Rynshu showed looks that beg to be worn (and then promptly discarded) by the likes of Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, et al.
