PARIS (AFP) - Tokyo-based French designer Julien David made his men's catwalk debut on Wednesday at the Paris menswear shows with a casual but elegant streetwear-inspired collection, while Mugler reinvented uniforms in a blaze of acid colours.

Up-and-coming David, 34, who has lived in Japan since 2006 and skateboards to relax, said the collection was all about subtle combinations.

"It's about mixing streetwear and high end with the placement of pockets, of a waist, these kinds of details," he told AFP.

"I find it interesting to make a suit with only a shirt and no jacket. It is kind of a street suit," he said.
