Michal Jackson will be the theme for the next Louis Vuitton show

Virgil Abloh has just unveiled the theme for his Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2018-19 show, which will be presented in Paris in January 2019: Michael Jackson.

The American designer has already demonstrated his admiration for pop culture icons through his own-label as seen at the Off-White Spring/Summer 2018 show which presented colorful pieces inspired by the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The graphic themes, a nod to American graffiti artist, Dondi White, seen in Abloh’s Off-White collection the following year also spring to mind. 

January 2019 will see the theme continued as Abloh is to present his second menswear collection for Louis Vuitton in Paris which will pay homage to the King of pop, Michael Jackson. In an interview with Interview magazine, Abloh revealed thatwhen I have Michael singing in the background, it’s a different type of shirt, it’s a different kind of boot, it’s a different fit of pants. Music is key.”  The American designer also revealed other news in announcing that he’d like to design a spaceship someday. Mr. Abloh, you never fail to surprise us…

JW Anderson is launching new Christmas collaboration

JW Anderson did it again and this time has collaborated with Gilbert & George in a new project for Christmas.

For those who don’t know the artistic duo Gilbert & George, they are renowned for their colorful photomontages. This time they gave their inspirational notes for a JW Anderson arty capsule collection.

Jonathan notes:

“For me, Gilbert & George are the ultimate British Modernists and I am obsessed with their work. I really appreciate both the sense of anarchy and order in what Gilbert & George do and in this way it works perfectly with JW Anderson – it’s a marriage of British eccentricities and traditions.”

Dior Men Pre Fall 2019

Kim Jones is building his vision for Dior Men with the notion that rules are meant to be broken.

First, he separated himself from a decade of “Dior Homme” and its super-skinny silhouette with a new name, and a fresh, boxier cut. Now, half a season in, he’s taking his vision on the road, landing in Tokyo with a Pre-Fall extravaganza to rival the season’s blockbuster womenswear shows.

On the runway were items for all kinds of guys, from the ones who want to wear a monogram silk shirt with cherry blossom accents to others who are looking for dapper houndstooth suits with posh, asymmetric blazers. A white astrakhan bomber that shaded into a toile de Jouy summed it up: something elegant as hell, yet grounded in utility, and designed with couture craftsmanship and know-how.

All of this was brought together around a 39-and-a-half-foot statue of a silver robo-babe by the Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama.

Celine's first menswear collection will debut in January

Hedi Slimane will present his first collection dedicated exclusively to menswear for Celine during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris in January 2019.

On September 28, 2018, Hedi Slimane presented his first collection as creative director for Celine at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019. The September show saw Slimane introduce masculine silhouettes for the first time, in a show that featured models of every gender. The menswear pieces had a rock edge, an aesthetic borrowed from the Parisian nightlife scene (which served as inspiration for the show). Now, the fashion world is awaiting Slimane’s first collection exclusively dedicated to menswear for Celine, which will debut in January 2019 at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.

GUCCI will host a new exhibition in Florence during Pitti Uomo

Gucci opened Gucci Garden within the Palazzo della Mercanzia in Florence on January 10, just in time for this year’s Pitti Uomo trade show. Renovated by Alessandro Michele himself, the space holds several exhibition rooms overseen by critic and curator Maria Luisa Frisa, as well as a boutique filled with exclusive products, and a restaurant with the best chef in the world, Massimo Bottura, at its helm. Now, for the 95th Pitti Uomo in January 2019, Gucci has unveiled its plans for a brand-new exhibition, after dedicating one to Alessandro Michele’s collaborations with the house the designer’s homage to Björk’s. Two news artists, succeeding the work of Coco Capitán and Jayde Fish, will present their new murals.

Spread over two floors, the Gucci Garden highlights the history of Gucci, from its founding in 1921 to the present day, through a series of exceptional artefacts such as clothes, accessories, video installations and pieces of art. Each room explores the inspirations that were driving forces behind the house’s success, such as flora and fauna, one of Alessandro Michele’s favorite sources of inspiration and a recurring theme for several seasons now. Artists such as Coco Capitán, Jayde Fish and Trevor Andrew who all contributed to Gucci’s rise in the art world, have also contributed to the space, redecorating its walls with their unique artistic vision. Following the work of Capitán, Fish and Andrew, two new artists will take over the Gucci walls on January 8 2019, just in time for the 95th Pitti Uomo. The new exhibition will take over from the Björk-themed presentation currently in place.

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?

MUST watch: Netflix's Halloween promo video starring Antoni Porowski

Spooky season just got a lot spookier . . . and more sexy.!

On Monday, Netflix dropped a teaser for its sinister new anthology of horror shorts titled “Don't Watch This”, and it features the lovable chef from the streaming service's popular show Queer Eye. That's right, Antoni Porowski — known for pleasantly helping people improve their cooking skills — just showed us a side of him that might make us rethink going to one of his dinner parties (if we're ever cool enough to get invited).

In the clip for the episode called "Antoni Psycho," Porowski is clearly channelling his inner Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. He dons a Greek yoghurt face mask while doing a few yoga stretches in nothing but his Calvin Klein underwear (which isn't a bad start, honestly — LOOK at those abs). Totally normal, right? Well, things take a scary turn as Porowski wipes a knife clean as he eerily declares, "I don't care whether they like what I cook or not. They'll eat it if they know what's good for them." Ummm, what?! Who is the "they" that he's talking about? What happened to our smiley Antoni who just wants to help people make a nice dish of roasted potatoes? Antoni, are you OK? What did Netflix DO to you? As scary as this seems, it looks like we're going to have to give this a watch, because clearly Porowski has a bit of a dark side.

Moschino [tv] H&M collection is now out with strong 90s references

Jeremy Scott presented his collaboration collection, Moschino [tv] H&M.

The show saw playful and edgy pieces with pop culture motifs, such as the Mickey Mouse , repeated throughout. Scott’s now-famous obsession for bling and all that glitters was as evident as ever in the collection’s flamboyant, often oversized, jewelry. ( Could this be the start of a new cult jewelry trend? )

Particularly hard to ignore were the men’s chockers. The first, in leather, had bondage undertones while the second recalled 90s hip-hop nostalgia by means of large silver charms which spelled out “MOSCHINO”.

**The 1990s also proved a prevalent influence within the collection, as seen in these six images.
