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).

Massimo Dutti Fall 2018: Limited Edition collection

The Spanish Fashion brand Massimo Dutti brings a new limited edition collection for the Fall/Winter 2018 season, and showcases in a campaign / editorial.

Starring the Romanian model Roberto Sipos, the campaign is photographed by Gregory Harris.

H&M embraces University style for Fall 2018 Studio Collection

H&M Studio takes us to university with its fall-winter 2018 men's collection. The Swedish brand enlists models Alpha Dia, Jegor Venned, and Salomon Diaz for the outing. Collegiate style reigns as H&M delivers a mix of smart and casual styles.

The lineup includes standouts such as tartan pants, a bouclé peacoat, and houndstooth coat. Additional must-have items range from graphic pullovers to sleek jackets.

JOVÅN Spring/Summer 2019

JOVÅN (based in Milan) has been our addiction last season with his SS18 collection and we have to admit that he did it again with his Spring/Summer 2019 lines.

The founder and Creative director Jovan Stevanovic, continues his fashion journey and he presents men & women pieces in one collection with many lines available for him or her at the same time.

Unisex is the new black and JOVÅN SS19 meets Urban streetwear on its best. Metallic gold, black, yellow and lilac have been combined with red, white and denim blue elements and they propose the ideal look for those who dare to be different, to be unique. 

Another remarkable statement are the JOVÅN  accessories which have been combined in a really playful way. Caps, backpacks, jewellery and our favourite JOVÅN socks have already been the new trend in Milan. 

In conclusion is worth to mention the references to the LGBTQ+ community which have been  added in line with the new collection, reminding us the identity of the brand.

Sexy, playful, unique; JOVÅN is ready to hit the European market.

Versace’s AW18: New campaign with the longest-ever advertising image

Shot by Stephen Meisel, The Versace Fall Winter 2018 campaign features the longest-ever advertising image.

Side by side, the image features a cast of fifty four models symbolizing inlcusivity and diversity, key values for Donatella Versace and her vision for the brand.

“My team doesn’t just extend to my work team. The Versace Clans are made of all members of the Versace family – from customers to models, fans, photographers, stylists, friends, artists and all who believe that staying relevant means moving forward and making your voice heard – all who believe that fashion is not a way to just say ‘look at me’ but rather ‘look at me, I have something to say’.” she stated last when the very first promo video came out. 

Thom Browne Fall 2018: a statement show to remember

Androgynous looks and grey flannel for women; pants down, heels and puppy heads for men. 

A runway which looked like an art studio and “Lady painters painting portraits of ladies, in grey flannel.”  Models styled with androgynous outfits and with hair inspired from 18th century French aristocracy strolled along the runway, taking up positions for the painters while Madonna's 'Vogue' was the main soundtrack of the show. 

For the second and main part of the show, models walked wearing deconstructed outfits, all in the 'fifty shades of grey' flannel Some remind us men's office clothes, some others school uniform and the hero pieces are definitely statements inspired by the same century. 

Half dresses combined with others, skirts as tops and the opposite were some of the highlights.

And as a conclusion the most powerful statement of all: male models wearing grey dog head masks and heels walked out, all harnessed, followed by Grace Bol, the South Sundanese model holding their leashes and wearing a ball gown.
