    25 days ago - By WWD

    Jason Basmajian equipped his men - along with a few women - for the streets of Tokyo in summertime, a hot, urban setting that calls for only the most civilized of trappings.
    “Cerruti is all about relaxed elegance and fluidity, and easy; I really wanted to distill those codes down,” Basmajian said after the show.
    The outcome was a stylish lineup, soft on the edges but verging on preppy. It was built with fluid suits, dressy shorts ensembles and ultra light outerwear made from paper-thin fabric.
    Crotches hung low, the waists high and mostly pleated, while sleeves were pushed up way past the...

  • Ann Demeulemeester Men's Spring 2019

    25 days ago - By WWD

    A romantic vibe infused this full-on coed, gender-bending collection filled with loose garments, black flowers and veiled straw hats. It also juxtaposed fabrics, such as silk, lace, linen and leather in breezy silhouettes, and injected hues like pink into Ann Demeulemeester's traditionally black-and-white color code.
    The brand's creative director Sébastien Munier said he had in mind symbolism, which was birthed in the 19th century when artists pushed back against the industrial revolution.
    “Some dreamers, like poets, wanted to express a certain beauty, a certain decadence,” he said, citing...

  • Alexander McQueen Men's Spring 2019

    25 days ago - By WWD

    In one of her most powerful men's collections yet, Sarah Burton took a tough turn with a lineup of zippered leather, hacked-up trenchcoats and sharp edges to tailoring inspired by Francis Bacon and John Deakin, the 20th-century photographer who captured the louche lives in London's Soho. Burton wanted to focus on how these complicated, troubled men lived and worked: “I wanted it to be very male, very powerfully male,” she said. “There's a sense of danger, and of artistic expression in the cutting and tailoring.”

    There was a lot happening at the Rick Owens men's spring 2019 fashion show. First, let's talk about his version of JNCOs. Remember those ultrawide '90s-era pants? Owens reworked them in his signature black and white tones. Styles ranged from sleek and studded to monochromatic patchwork versions. Then, there were the men's skirts - a...

  • Amiri Men's Spring 2019

    25 days ago - By WWD

    Mike Amiri hit the Paris runway for spring with a coed show that sought to celebrate the tribes of his hometown, Los Angeles.
    The grungy offering was less slim-line, with slouchy sweaters and paint-splashed cut-off jeans joining the mix alongside outsized check shirts glammed up with sequins and zebra-printed jeans. This intermingling gave the whole collection a more improvised, eclectic effect the designer described as a mix of Sunset rocker and Venice skater.
    “It's more of a mix of cultures, growing up in Hollywood and then my parents moving me to Beverly Hills to keep me out of trouble...

  • Misbhv Men's Spring 2019

    25 days ago - By WWD

    Misbhv merged Polish jazz music, poster art and utilitarianism for spring, moving away slightly from the underground club culture that has characterized the young label's ethos until now and giving it a more clearly stated “post-Soviet” aesthetic in a wacky yet fun collection.
    Earlier this month, the label founded by Natalia Maczek staged its first runway show in Warsaw, a coed affair that took place in the iconic-yet-controversial Palace of Culture and Science building, which also appeared on the front cover of Vogue Poland's first issue earlier in the year.
