#PradaSS20 Menswear was shown in Shanghai at the Silo Hall of Minsheng Wharf. An arrangement of neon lights outlines the industrial form language of the hall, enhancing the intricate geometries, generating a glowing enfilade that shimmers in subtle pastel colors.
It's a news that has had the effect of a bomb: Jean Paul Gaultier breathes his DNA couture in a collection with quotient undeniably street performed in tandem with Supreme. A shopper now in stores in New York, London, Paris and Los Angeles, and on the e-shop of Supreme. All the pictures are here.

A surrealist trapped in reality, a painter on a quest to find his inspiration, and an ever current
Following its first fashion film, “Anamnesis”, the men’s brand Dánte makes a comeback with
“Lobster”, a film praising introspection and the constant, very personal, search for one’s true self.
Inspiration is found in Salvador Dali, one of the most eccentric and controversial personalities of
contemporary art and surrealism.
After Nikos Psarras, the torch is passed to Stavros Svigkos, the talented actor who portrays a
contemporary version of Dali, trying to find his lobster, the inspiration he needs to express his very
own truth without limitations or restraints.
Inspirer of the idea and founder of the brand, Antonis Papastavrou, places the Spanish painter’s
moustache-symbol, which in itself was a statement against the stereotypes of the hyperrealists of
Dali’s time, in the skilled hands of Kontstantinos Dekoumés who magnificently brings to life the
artistic and personal impasse in which the artist found himself, as well as the symbolic association it
had with the inspiration for his famous painting, the lobster..

He introduced himself as Conchita Wurst through Eurovision and he managed to won the competition in 2014. The media wrote ‘‘A glamorous drag queen stole Eurofans’ hearts as she rised like a phoenix on the stage of Eurovision. The win belongs to her’’.
Five years later, Conchita WURST is back and we love every little detail of the new WURST and his music project.
“Hit me with the bullets you make up in your head,” sings Electro-newcomer WURST on his latest song that is released today and will make all heads and legs move. The official video provides unprecedented insights into the artist’s private life.
WURST sings his way directly into memory banks with his Electro-Dance earworm “Hit Me”. At first glance, this dance track seems to be light-hearted and carefree, but its lyrics are an ice-cold reckoning with the past. Even though there are guns and projectiles pointing at him in these lyrics, the artist is convinced that no threat can harm him and his determination makes him invincible.
The brand-new, dynamic song is the second single off Tom Neuwirth’s third album, who will impersonate the two characters Conchita and WURST from now on. Early on in his career as the feminine Conchita, he already sang about being “unbreakable” and “unstoppable”. As his new stage character WURST, who is significantly edgier and more unkempt, he talks about his convictions as unambiguously and unflinchingly as never before in “Hit Me.”
He clearly states how he intends to handle his opponents with lyrics like “You don’t get to point the gun and you don’t get to force my hand, cause I don’t get to mend the matters, I don’t get to fight back.”
In the official music video for “Hit Me”, which once again does not use any special effects, we see WURST as masculine as never before: the radiant stage character and the private person are both equally captivating. Dance performances like in “Trash All The Glam” already hinted at the artist’s body control, and last summer we already got a first taste of his platinum-blond look.
Following “Trash All The Glam”, “Hit Me” is the second release off Tom Neuwirth’s latest project WURST. After his debut album “Conchita”, which was released in 2015, and his second album “From Vienna With Love” with the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, which was released in October last year and also reached gold status, the singles of his third album project WURST now just keep on coming. The electronic soundscapes, which were produced by Albin Janoska and written by Eva Klampfer (“Lylit”), are far more personal for Tom Neuwirth than the songs of his previous repertoire.
Isabel Marant delivers an autumn-winter 2019-2020 collection inspired by urban safari through a sandy-white, off-white, khaki-colored range of ultra comfortable models such as knit sweaters, carrot pants and 80's shoulder suits. Cocooning silhouettes that will, for sure, embellish the men's wardrobe next winter.

Maison Margiela AW19 offered up an antidote to digital overload.
John Galliano presented the latest collection for his band of ‘digital nomads’ and we love every single piece of it.

“This time I wanted the clothes to be the statues,” said Kim Jones
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.
If you were around London Fashion Week Men’s last weekend ,you probably came across the super stylish model and influencer.
Posing for street style photographers or catching up with his fashionistas friends and followers, mr Richard Biedul always brings out a unique energy and image that you can’t ignore. He has been one of our favourites from day one and he made it once again this season with his notable looks.
Well-respected within the industry, with designer collaborations and guest appearances on runways and fashion events, the IMG model loves and supports London’s men fashion week from the very beggining as he has been part of it all the previous seasons too.
The autumn/winter 2019 edition of London Fashion Week Men’s kicked off yesterday in its new home at Brick Lane’s Truman Brewery. Our style editor Martina Ghia and fashion journalist Stephen George have taken over our social media for the weekend and here are all the highlights from DAY 1:
Day one showcased what London has become today: Upcoming and international designer names on the schedule with creativity and diversity on their best.
For Autumn-Winter 2019, Bobby Abley takes inspiration from his family and hometown of Scarborough, where he worked on the collection. Abley revisits his childhood; balaclavas, scarves and baby blankets are all replicated, hand knitted by his mother (and other relatives) and incorporated within the collection as one-off pieces. The family team of knitters also created cardigans and jumpers in fluorescent colours – a palette which recurs throughout the collection. The rest of the colours in the collection are inspired by Abley’s favourite characters from Pokémon.
90s and modern sport wear references were the main characteristics of ICEBERG AW19 show. Mickey became the protagonist of the apres-ski style of the collection which have been combined perfectly with the bold colours and the british punk references on grooming and styling.
JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN:
Live music from London indie group Wild Daughter, a plethora of leopard print and heavy leather trench coats and trousers were some of the John Lawrence Sullivan’s fashion elements during his underground AW19 show. Strong textures and bold colours have been combined to create the new contemporary menswear.
Amidst the current uncertain political and social climate, Qasimi’s urban nomad travels to the near future with a vision of hope within a utopian landscapefor autumn/winter 2019.
Utilitarian sportswear, bold colours with burgundy as the protagonist and protective layering are the three main trends that Qasimi is proposing for the next winter.
Concluding Day 1 it is worth to mention the British emerging talents who turned into tailoring with a twist for next winter.

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!).
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.
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!
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."
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.
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.
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).
