In one sense, going to the seasonal menswear collections in Paris is a terrible way to get to know the French capital. So packed is the schedule that you inevitably spend the whole time not walking wistfully through the streets, à la Mr Walter Benjamin, or Mr Charles Baudelaire, but frantically hopping in Ubers and elbowing your way through crowds of Vetements-clad street-style photographers. The whole experience is hardly of a calibre suitable for the Paris Wallpaper* guide. Having said that, there is a benefit to trolling all over the city in this way – you get to discover a lot of interesting places that, as a tourist, you would probably never visit. Here’s our favourite three venues from the SS17 shows last weekend.
