The Paris Men's Fashion Spring and Summer 2011 has just concluded at the fashion capital, after five days running from last Wednesday 'til Sunday. So, if you haven't yet picked out your wardrobe for this summer's yachting vacation, the latest Hermes' collection presented on Saturday was just the show for you.

For Hermes's spring summer 2001 menswear collection, designer Veronique Nichanian delivered a sumptuous collection of tasteful white linen suits and casual chic printed silk blouses that would feel right at home, even on the most expensive yachts.

Nichanian called the collection "nonchalant," and it was just that - easy, classic, and tastefully chic for the discriminating, yacht-set consumer.

John Galliano's spring summer 2011 menswear show was inspired by silent films.

Models in twitching faux mustaches and bowler hats sported urban interpretations of Charlie Chaplain's black suits, where microfiber jackets were paired with drop-crotched pinstripe shorts.

Rope belts, dangling pocket watches, and dandified suspenders were the season's must-have accessories.

Less was more at Dior Homme on Saturday, with a minimalist spring-summer menswear 2011 show of raw seams and flowing panels that proved you can spend more for fewer finishings.

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, a devoted Dior Homme fan and normally on hand for the shows, praised the collection as "very elegant."

Karl Lagerfeld said, "It's the same style, but I mean there is nothing bad about that, there are a ton of jackets, beautifully cut because you know that the Dior is the best made in the world. In fact there is no one making clothes that well made. All this is Dior, beautifully made. The materials are very elegant, this new bluish grey, I think it's very chic. For some of the things I may be a little old you have to be young but is great, it's very elegant in a modern way to pronounce and to use that word."

In a rarity for Paris shows, where the models are overwhelmingly white, five Asian models were featured in the closing section of the Dior display.
