The brightest pink, worn head to toe if possible is going to be next summer’s menswear look. From Louis Vuitton’s pink croc to Dior’s pink cover up. From Versace’s pink hair + pink runway to Emporio Armani’s fluid pink suit. Embracing your masculinity never looked this bright. Next year be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons guys!

Menswear Trends SS2020 Round-up

July 3, 2019 by  
Filed under Fashion, Menswear

Men wearing dresses at the shows might have made some headlines five years ago. But menswear has changed so much the last couple of years there’s hardly a way to shock or surprise the audience anymore. And that is such a great observation. Rules have faded, boundaries have blurred, codes have shifted so that men can dress as freely as ever. Yes, we’re slowly moving from sporty and street to sophisticated and dressed up. Yet the new dressing up game is so much different than before. We’re getting seventies vibes (with lots of color, prints and a feeling of a louche love affair). Summer suits are allowed in just about any color except for the conservative navy and black. The ocean forms a big inspiration for many nautic boy (boat hat on, scarf around the neck) outings. Tunics and “midlayer garments” (quoting Vigirl Abloh) are the fits for relax/holiday mode. And then there’s a whole armory of gender bending looks and collections ready to change up the fashion game for guys just a little more. Also: let’s take a moment for the breathtaking Jacquemus show Simon Porte Jacquemus decided to hold in the middle of endless lavender fields in Aix-en-Provence. The ultimate escape for a 2020 holiday.

So we’ve discussed this trend for the girls (remember our SS2019 Yellow trend report?), but it works for guys too you know. Sorbet shades or just the ray of sunshine; yellow is the color of choice for a good summer fit. Just look at how the male models at Acne, Kenzo, Dior and Dries van Noten sported the color. Jackets, pants, tees or sweaters and matching bags; keep it mellow. The summer is yours.

If you’d have to put your money on any color palette or combination, this might be a safe bet. It’s fresh, it’s unexpected and it works so damn well. Tangerine & turquoise; they go together like peanut butter and jelly. Don’t you think? Spotted at Walter von Beirendonck, Acne, Paul Smith and Valentino. You’re gonna want to add a touch of color to your 50 shades of grey f/w wardrobe. No need to opt for bright orange body warmers (as seen at ACW, Richmond and Marni) straight away. A beanie, scarf or backpack in either one of these shades will work it’s wonders just as well.

Guys, hitting the gym all winter long has paid off and now is time to show off. Unbuttoned shirts or no shirt at all. Pair your favorite swim shorts with a bright colored bucket hat. Match your shorts with your tropical shirt. Or opt for something eclectic (as seen at Walter von Beirendonck and Prada). No matter what dresscode you’re gonna go with, it’s (summer summer) summertime and we want you to show it.

Function meets fashion is not just a big theme for the ladies, this and upcoming season the guys too will see a lot of utility clothing. Like large pockets, big zippers, extra bags in all kinds of random places. And when you’re talking functionality there’s one piece of clothing that can’t be forgotton: the body warmer. And it’s making a huge comeback for fall. As seen at A Cold Wall, Kenzo, Marni, Vetements and Louis Vuitton. Keeping it warm and keeping it cool at the same time. Time to full up all those pockets!

Menswear Streetstyle Trend SS2019: Checks Please

We might have been focusing on the ladies a lot lately. But these lads sure know a good game of getting dressed. See how each of these guys interpreted the trend of checks in their own way. As a subtle detail in the form of a bucket hat or a scarf. Or more load and blunt in the shape of wide legged pants, sweaters and sharp coats. Buffalo checks, tartan checks, Burberry checks, pied de poule or houndstooth; we’re all in favor. Plaid inspired. Checks please!

Who wants to wear navy blue shorts when you can sport a pair of colorful printed ones? Van Beirendonck, Kenzo, Prada and Louis Vuitton show you how it’s done. Tie dye influences, retro prints or some good old Hawaiian inspired patterns will do the trick. Tone it down with a basic with tee or, even better, top it off with a statement hoodie or a vibrant summer jacket. The summer is yours!

Yohji Yamamoto Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2019

January 22, 2019 by  
Filed under Fashion, Menswear

Yohji Yamamoto today was all black and all coats. How impressive to pull off a collection filled with black coats and not make it a bore. The robe coats had Japanese depictions of women in various states of pleasure, flowers and skulls and they had lots of detail. Buttons played a big part, not just double breasted but diagional, over the shoulder, in two horizontal rows, small and black, chunky and gold colored. Lots of layering going on too as Yamamoto’s models (with their hair carelessly worn in front of their faces) looked cool and collected in every single outfit.  

Comme des Garçons Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2019

January 22, 2019 by  
Filed under Fashion, Menswear

“Finding beauty in the dark, there is no light without dark” was about all the explanation we got for the Commes des Garçons collection. And dark it was. Models looked rather creepy with their black lips, dark eye make-up and extreme hairdos. There clothes weren’t very cheerful either; mesh tops, leggings with Jesus symbols and crosses as a print, long coats, checks and paisley prints in the mix, harnesses and black leather boots. We’re not sure what to make of it yet. It was a CdG show like any other; peculiar and completely distant and different from what most brands are doing right now. Rei Kawakubo will have us contemplating on what we just saw for days.
