PARIS (AFP) - Junya Watanabe turned men's fashion blue on Friday with a collection in every imaginable shade while Maison Martin Margiela sparkled with a blend of daring and classic for spring/summer 2015.

Japanese designer Watanabe, who once famously told an interviewer he had no interest in the mainstream, kicked off day three of the Paris shows with a rich tapestry of blue mixing everything from patchwork and stripes to checks and floral prints.

In one look, a double breasted patchwork jacket was teamed with cropped trousers, slicked down hair, heavy drawn-on eyebrows and flip-flops.

In another, a hooded jacket was given big, asymmetrical pockets and worn with striped leggings.
