Summer 2018 is around the corner, but we’re already way to excited for next year’s styles. Milan’s menswear fashion week has just finished and we cain’t wait to share some of the hottest new trends with you. So that you’re fully prepared for what next year has to offer or so that you can really be one of the first to rock some of the ’19 trends this very summer. So read carefully…

There was a big focus on prints. Vibrant floral prints (Versace, Dsquared, Marni), cactus, pasta and fruit (Dolce & Gabbana, MSGM) prints, but also some very abstract printed photo images (Marni, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada). The man purse (cross body that is) found it’s way onto the runway at Versace. Prada introduced some super short shorts (if you dare!). And after the Yeezy shock earlier this month Versace, MSGM and Dsquared worked their neon magic too.

Other SS2019 necessities are matrix style trench coats, socks in sandals, parkas, wide pleated pants and anything logomania (yes, it’s still a thing).

In other (non menswear fashion trend) news: Kendall Jenner returned to the runway after five months and Naomi Campbell closed the Dolce & Gabbana show (also walked by twin models and the coolest couples).

Trend Report SS2018: Hawai Five O

Filed under Fashion, Menswear, Streetwear

We wrote about it after it hit all the major catwalks (Balenciaga, Dries van Noten, Paul Smith, Louis Vuitton) and now the Hawaian shirt had reached the streets. It was the one item all men were sporting during the menswear shows, giving Paris a sort of tropical vibe. Exuberant or more timid; floral patterns and palmtree prints will take you from day to night. Pair ’em with shorts or a full on pink suit. Roll up those sleeves and don’t forget your sunnies. Let’s bring some exotic vibes to our urban jungle.

 

Trend Report SS2018: High Waisted (men)

It’s not just the feminine silhouette that focuses on waists this summer. High waisted pants (and belts) are a thing for guys too. Black trousers and tucked in white tees or tanks paired with some old school white sneakers make up for the coolest fits. While a party unbuttoned (Hawaiian) shirts makes for a good match as well. Legs for days and a careless attitude, not everyone can pull this look off. But once you’ve figured it out; make the most of it before the trend passes (and it’s everyone is showing off their boxer shorts again).

“Men don’t have as much dressing up options as women do”, you hear it all the time. And it’s true that men in general dress-up more plain or basic then their female counterparts. But stating they don’t have as much clothes/styles/looks to pull from certainly isn’t true. And if anyone ever stil says so, let them click through the gallery in this blogpost. Cause these guys simply have the baddest streetstyles out there. It is colourful, vibrant, playful (but never clow-ish), manly, tough and absolute out of the box. Complete with exotic hairstyles, caps, beanies, sunglasses, hoodies and man bags. And who says guys can’t wear full on floral printed coats? We dare all women to go all out like these guys. And this gallery just goes to show that with the right attitude you can make any outfit work.

Bottega Veneta Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2018

Tomas Maier – the designer of Bottega Veneta, decided to present the fall-collection in New York because of the opening of a flagship-store in the Big Apple. Maier’s color-palette worked the wearable side of flamboyance — marigold, wine, purple and his silhouettes shunned citified cliché. He opted for relaxed shapes and intense surface interest. A skirt was embroidered with a demonstrative, artisanal riff on the cube motif. A dress featured two overlays of fabric cut away into geometric motifs; another contrasted shiny and velvet sequins. Fine outlines on dresses and skirts that at first glance looked like stitching were actually delicate chain embroideries.

While Maier referred to his tailoring as sharp, it had an off-beat zip, as in a double-breasted orange suit with multiple, demonstrative pockets. The coats were fabulous, almost all bonded fabrics that looked different outside and in, delivering that intimate luxury for which Bottega is famous: camel mohair and wool tiger stripes were bonded to satin; crinkled orchid satin to gray felt.

Maier’s men’s wear reflected a similar fusion of “notice me” confidence with adult sophistication. The designer focused on sportswear looks anchored by an impressive array of jackets and coats, including several shearlings printed with zebra stripes. The cube motif surfaced in a grid pattern etched on a red tailored jacket over bright yellow pants, as well as bold color blocks for pants and a coat.

Balmain Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear FW2018

Olivier Rousteing – Balmain’s designer – reinforced everything the brand is known for, revisiting house classics like the short jacket, the tight pants, the military jacket and the marinière in a torrent of metallic, glittery embellishments. The direction was echoed in the women’s looks, which were hooked on signature sexy, thigh-skimming dresses.
Sticking to his skinny, square-shoulder silhouette, military — one of the season’s key trends — was a major theme, but more for the embellishments than a utilitarian mood, with plays on pockets, zips and lacing on a run of khaki green bombers and bikers.

Vetements Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear FW2018

Demna Gvasalia, the designer of Vetements, went back to his designer roots and to the [Martin] Margiela approach.He wanted to shows his gratitude towards the label where he learned a lot of his designer skills and ways of breaking the rules.
He did it his own way with his signature mash-up of signs and prints, thrift-store sportswear collages and Eastern European peasant styling, with silhouettes built from piled-up oversized shirts in a jumble of prints and headscarves.
But the collection also had a softer, chicer side to it. His idea of turning oversized jackets around to expose the tags was very Margiela-esque, as were the tribal tattoo T-shirts and crumpled suits that looked as though they’d been picked off the bedroom floor.
Remixing his favorite things from his own youth, the designer added Marilyn Manson T-shirts, cut up his favorite T-shirts to create quirky assemblages of graphic messages and included a hookup with Nineties club-kid sneaker brand Swear. The customized denim with hand doodles and kids’ stickers added a playful, more joyful mood to the collection.

Rick Owens Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear FW2018

Rick Owens translated his anger in his fall win ter 2018 collection. He experienced some frustrations lately, he told WWD. He had run up against technical limitations related to his exhibition in Milan, and to some special effects planned for his fall 2018 men’s show, leaving him two options: either push hard to get things done right or tame one’s ideas in the land of red tape. It’s a conundrum that extends to the wider socio-ecological-political climate, he argued.
He unleashed his wrath working within his own framework, mixing grand sartorial gestures with a military-athletic vibe. A lot of the clothes looked as if they had been mutilated, with aggressive cutouts on elongated tunics that allowed for peek-a-boo moments on the body, and asymmetric skirts that looked like they’d been crafted from slashed up shorts.

Conversely, a run of capes had their armholes sewn shut, the arms liberated only through slits at the front. They added some chic drama.
The collection had a great sculptural quality to it, applied to everything he touched including the boots and sneakers with platform molded soles, which added to the brutality of the ensemble. Owens also He reworked shapes from past seasons.
