MEN’S ROOM: Paris is burning on the men’s wear front, with a slew of designers poised to join the next fashion week, from Jan. 20 to 23. Alexandre Plokhov, who shuttered his Cloak label in 2006 and did a three-year stint at Versace, said he plans to launch a signature collection and has rented a Paris gallery to unveil it. Another New York-based designer, Yigal Azrouël, is angling to show his men’s collection on a Paris runway. European names are also muscling onto the calendar, with iconic Left Bank brand Arnys plotting its first runway outing, and Thierry Mugler presenting the first men’s collection by Romain Kremer under the artistic direction of Nicola Formichetti. Finally, rumor has it Maison Martin Margiela is also mulling its first runway show for its men’s wear.
