Paris Men's Fashion Week is over, and there's no shortage of runway shots and reviews detailing the inspiration for each collection. But what about the stories behind those specific pieces the designers love? The items they and their teams labored over for months in hopes that you will buy them when they hit stores?

Sacai's Chitose Abe talks about her collaboration with tattoo artist Dr. Woo and a leopard print Chesterfield coat; Rhude's Rhuigi Villaseñor spoke on the quarter-zip shearling he wanted to be athletic and luxurious; Charaf Tajer of Casablanca explained his fascination with Dalmaitions and Aristotle Onassis, which showed up on a silk shirt Westside Gunn wore to the show; and Kim Jones, artistic director at Dior Men's, explained how he used a couture dress from the archives to design an embellished coat that took 1,000 hours to make. Read their stories below.
