Missoni SS20 men's collection at Milan Fashion Week

Memories of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin Inspire the Heady, Romantic Mix at Missoni SS20 show.

The menswear collection was fresh, candind and it served the new elegant style for the summer. Tailoring all the way with strong references of the DNA of the brand with the bold knitwear patterns to lead the runway. The colour pallete was mainly burgundy with cream and sand tones and…. the 50 shades of blue.

Bottega Veneta SS20 men's collection at Milan Fashion Week

“Bottega Veneta is about the individual; it's for you," Daniel Lee ends in a press release on Bottega Veneta's recently concluded spring/summer 2020 women's and men's runway show, and we have to admit that the men’s collection was one of our favourites.

Set within the walls of the Palazzo del Senato, the floor of the venue was completely covered in cream Intrecciato encased in glass.

Sweaters with skin-baring details. remarkable leather pieces including some very cool boxer shorts, and relaxed tailoring were seme of the main elements of men’s collection. The styling gave a feeling of a ‘tailored sportiness’.



TOM FORD mens SS20 collection at New York Fashion Week

Tom Ford has presented his menswear collection for spring / summer 2020 during New York Fashion Week and we love every single piece of it.

Sophisticated suiting, luxurious outerwear, a James Dean silhouette with greased-back, 1950s waves and leather jacket looks. The models rocked the runway as the street punks of today with pastel pink and monochrome looks leading the collection.

LOEWE FW19 by Tyler Mitchell

To showcase Jonathan Anderson’s Menswear Fall/Winter 2019, LOEWE has collaborated with Tyler Mitchell, the rising talent best known for shooting Beyoncé for the September 2018 cover of US Vogue.

Taking the playful masculinity that has characterized the brand’s evolving Men’s collections to a new level, Benjamin Bruno styled a group of young models for the latest hardcover look book. The collection, which had its runway debut in Paris last January, used the historic locations of Piedra del Rey Moro and Museo de Santa Cruz in the Spanish city of Toledo as its picturesque backdrop.

MSGM: TheSS20 show at Pitti Uomo

MSGM has revealed its 10th anniversary collection in Florence, during Pitti Uomo.

Camp collar shirts in lobster, poppy, or bandana paisley prints were mashed against pants and track jackets in lividly clashing two-tone leopard print. Sebago boat shoes and linen blousons and shorts featured naive graphics and heartfelt scrawled messages of summer love. A collaboration with the painter Norbert Bisky produced an attractive fractured portrait used as prints on shirting, shorts, and perforated nylon vests or in panels on the tailoring.

Dries Van Noten AW19 at Paris Fashion Week Men's

Dries Van Noten has presented a selection of voices that accompanied his AW 2019/2020 collection—an aural backdrop of snatches of conversations and interviews with the men Van Noten admires. There was David Bowie, of course: his pleated pants, a flavor of his ’80s persona. There was David Hockney, talking about getting up mid-morning in California, and going out to see what’s around to paint.

There was a burst of Jimi Hendrix—cue a riff on tie-dye. Kurt Cobain, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon, Yves Saint Laurent, David Byrne. And in the middle of it, there was the mordant voice of an Englishman, nailing the state of affairs today. “I think the whole of our society is run by insane people for insane objects," he said. Turned out to be John Lennon, in the ’60s.

London Fashion Week Men's Highlights: DAY 2

The fashion caravan has already trundled off to Milan, but before we take a small break from our reports from Milan, here are a few parting words on some of the second day highlights and shows. 


PHOEBE ENGLISH
 

 
 

This season the English brand participated with a presentation at The Strand which was strong enough to translate the ethos of the PHOEBE ENGLISH label.

 
 

Box and bomber jackets, smart wide trousers and a collaboration with designer Helen Lawrence on chunky knitwear completed the strong visuals of the collection and its installation.

 
 

Christopher RÆBURN

 
 

With Innovative design and always #sustainable, the Christopher RÆBURN AW18 collection was for another one time unstoppable. 

 
 

The inspiration for the Autumn Winter 18-19 collection comes from the beauty and the fragility of our oceans and it consists of pieces that many times can be more functional than only beautiful or trendy. He  chose his own path, he never follows the trends but who cares; that's the reason we love him.

 
 

During the show we noted both male and female models on the runway, even though a big range of the pieces are unisex. A new collaboration with the surf brand Finistere and the Palladium one on footwear completed the sustainable design manifesto. 


Alex Mullins

 
 

Futuristic, colourful and with 90s elements, Alex Mullins rocked the runway. His AW 18 collection pays tribute to the futuristic ideals of his early 90s inspirations of SS18. and continues to revisit his on-going interest of encompassing a timeless wardrobe with a contemporary take.

 
 

Coloured spiral tie dye roll necks paired with tailored pieces, cream and camel longline puffer coats and white shirts with modular cut out detailing feature across the collection.

 
 

Charles Jeffrey

Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY presented his Autumn Winter 2018 collection during  London Fashion Week Men’s and he amazed the fashion world, once again.

We will definitely come back to his collection with another report, but for now we note that in one collection we saw words such as ‘Truth’, ‘Love’, ‘Energy’, ‘Power’, ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ to be translated on clothes. 

Surrealism, intense colours, womenswear on male models and androgynous on female and elements of the Scottish tradition created this collection.
