Prada SS19: Are the super short shorts the next summer trend?

Watching Prada Men Spring Summer 2019 show we have noted a lot of looks that we dream about for ourselves.

We’re talking super short shorts, retro tone-on-tone belts, big puffy hats and a really nice set of bags… but what about those ‘super mini’ shorts?

Inspired by 70s and designed with patterns and colours from the 90s, the new trend proposal from Prada seems to be quite sexy and unusual at the the same time for the men’s world.

Muccia Prada used the words “more elegant” when describing how she wanted her men to look and she definitely achieved it.

I am already in love with those burgundy silky short shorts! What do you think about the new trend?


WE LOVE: Harry Styles in the new men's Gucci Tailoring campaign

On set at a fish and chip shop in northern London, Harry Styles appears in the new GUCCI men’s Tailoring campaign.

Wearing the House’s suiting designed by Alessandro Michele for Fall Winter 2018, Harry Styles walks in a ‘chippy’—the traditional British fish and chip shop—with a chicken and a dog. In a wool mohair jacket with embroidered collar and a striped suit styled with a gingham dressing gown, Harry shares his battered cod and fried chips with his pets, in a sequence shot by Glen Luchford and art directed by Christopher Simmonds.


5+1 menswear trends for Fall/Winter 2018-2019

From bucket hats to hiking boots, and from extra large shoulders to superlative layering, these are the Autumn Winter trends to know about.

Sportswear is well-anchored in this new fashion vocabulary, but this season it made way for a few fashion foibles and chic accents ( thank God, tailoring is coming back!).

LOGOMANIA

Street style is not as strong as last year but the 'logomania' trend is here again and this time is more bolder than ever.  After all the new and upcoming brands 'stealing' the top positions of the fashion industry last year, now the big Fashion Houses are assuming the style heritage that they rejected for so long. Go loud with all-over print, or go home.

WESTERN

A symbol of hopes and dreams, the wide plains of the American West are a seemingly inexhaustible source of inspiration for designers across the fashion capitals. From Raf Simons to Calvin Klein and Dries Van Noten the winter collections are proposing the style of the 'modern cowboy'. All you need is camel or earth colours, jeans, cowboy boots and your shearling jacket and you are ready!

XXL SHOULDERS

80s have been in our memories as the years with the most fashion statement looks. Extravaganza womenswear and more bold and androgynous menswear than ever. That was the decade when Mr Armani took over menswear and shoulders got wider... and wider. Today’s times recall a little of the same ambiant zeitgeist that pushed designers to create jackets and coats with shoulders that were ever wider.

"Fashion armour for an uncertain world."

EXTREME LAYERING

Demna Gvasalia did it again... Balenciaga and Vetements ''were doing the most!'' with superlative layering and really similar looks on the runway, supporting Demna's unique street style aesthetic. A kick in the teeth for global warming and tension around the world, or simple seasonal styling? You decide.

CLUB TROPICANA

From Prada’s archive flame print revival, to rebel skulls at SSS World Cop and Wales Bonner’s sensitive motifs, the print shirt will run and run through next winter. Refreshing and definitely something new for a winter season.

 MidNight GLAM

Sequins and metallic are back again but this season all the midnight glam becomes 'a man thing'!  Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, SSS World Cop and Balmain have already shown the way - you only have to find your favourite now...

We have to admit that this winter is full of new entries when it comes to trends. Some others that we love at REY and you will definitely see in our next editorial stories are the Fetishism of Moschino,  the new Tiger print addiction and the Space Fantasy  ( see Heron Preston or Undercover).

Richard Biedul x King & Tuckfield AW18 collaboration collection

King & Tuckfield is a new menswear contemporary brand, founded by Stacey Wood just 3 years ago. Its signature aesthetic fuses a distinctly British 1950’s feel, with sharp contemporary styling inspired by the colourful stories of Stacey's family history.

The design team is passionate  with quality and sustainable materials, and their inspiration comes from the British fashion heritage and culture.  They always love to mix everything that looks vintage with something that looks modern creating the new classic. 

Model, Art and Style director, Richard Biedul  joined that team to create his first 5 pieces-capsule collection and with these AW18 pieces makes his debut in the design world. 

The collection consists of pieces which everyone needs all the time and every piece seems to be ideal for your wardrobe. Richard mentioned "We've created almost an off-duty uniform… it is about comfort, it's about function and formality" 

And it's actually true. Everything can go from casual to formal depends on the way you style them on you. Modern, elegant pieces that will always be in fashion. 

During this collaboration Richard has discovered a new found love for quality denim and has merged this new passion on his designs too. Focusing also on 100% fine merino wool in a bold spectrum of Navy, Fiesta Red and Clover Green, the collection is inspired with vintage references and a 1950's notion. 

 . Richard Biedul x King & Tuckfield AW18 capsule collection translates back to the main SS19 collection which we had the opportunity to see during London Fashion Week and we have to admit that we fell in love with...

The AW18 collection is now available on kingandtuckfield.com

Gucci t-shirt

Tour merch is no longer that one-off T-shirt you bought in a love frenzy of the band directly post-gig. Nowadays it’s a fashion-focussed affair curated to fit into your personal style. Newly versed in irony, Gucci takes on the trend for SS18, typing out its brand name in exaggerated font on this cotton-jersey T-shirt and underscoring it with a selection of locations. It’s a Gucci gig, and you’re invited. Available on gucci.com

Kappa Kontroll jersey shorts

Talk about a throwback! Kappa Kontroll is back and in a big way. We have fashion’s love affair with the 1990s to thank for that. The revival has a few tweaks mind you. The iconic mirrored man moniker is flipped upside down, and it’s placed in sequence as a side stripe down these jersey shorts. Available on selfridges.com

Givenchy classic shorts

Yes, there were a lot of short shorts on the SS18 catwalks, but if you’re sceptical about that translating to skimpy, fear not. As Givenchy - available on selfridges.com

Sandro Paris Denim Jacket

Denim jackets have pretty much made their way up through the ranks to achieve a 'basics' status that rivals the much-loved leather jacket. Sandro’s iteration leaves buttons in the past in favour of clean and sleek popper fastenings... and yes we go pink! Available on sandro-paris.com

JW Anderson Knot Tee

The knotted sleeve is a small design tweak but it’s come to symbolise the nonchalance and raw creativity of J.W. Anderson’s work. Not to mention those maritime references and they’re rife in this cotton-jersey T-shirt. Available on j-w-anderson.com

BLOOD BROTHER track pants

There’s one thing we can take solace in, and it’s the return of the tracksuit. Comfy enough to contain any wider woes, these sports-jersey BLOOD BROTHER track pants are designed with the classic drawstring waist and branded trims spanning the legs and they are our favourites. Available on selfridges.com
