    Junya Watanabe Men's Fall 2020

    1 month ago - By WWD

    Viva la passeggiata! Junya Watanabe's models exalted that Italian evening ritual on Friday morning in Paris, strolling the curved catwalk dressed in jaunty topcoats, blazers, neat jeans and natty brogues.
    Snippets of Italian dialogue, swooning and cinematic tracks like “Moon River” and some runway preening by models such as Sébastien Jondeau - Karl Lagerfeld's longtime bodyguard and personal assistant - heightened the charm of this display of sartorial splendor.
    Watanabe tends to use the same ingredients for his masculine soup: dark denim, British woolens, bits of outdoorsy ruggedness and...

  • Diplo and Kris Wu Announce New Music At Louis Vuitton

    1 month ago - By WWD

    TECHNO THURSDAY: Louis Vuitton made history on Thursday: the brand invited Cybotron, the electronic music band helmed by techno pioneer Juan Atkins, to play live during its fall 2020 men's show.
    Diplo was visibly impressed.
    “Old school Detroit!” exclaimed the artist, deejay and music producer. “I come from Florida, Miami, and everybody who came from Detroit influenced Miami music so hard. Miami bass actually comes from Detroit techno. It's fire.”
    Diplo, who was sitting front row in a cowboy hat and shades, is currently working on an altogether different genre.
    “I'm doing a lot of country...

  • Botter Men's Fall 2020

    1 month ago - By WWD

    For their first show, Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh sent out an elegant, comforting lineup. Flowers made of padding pushed out of the surface of a coat, a jacket panel peeled away to reveal exquisite linings, reflective material was slicked across an oversize top. Kimble tags shimmered on suits and hats - marabou feathers of the salvage savvy. An accumulation of plastic chairs, toilets and fans by Curaçao artist Tirzo Martha on the runway added to the “positive Arte Povera” vibe.
    WWD Critique: The experience Botter and Herrebrugh have accrued at Nina Ricci is bringing out their DIY...

    1 month ago - By WWD

    Women's tailoring label Giuliva Heritage Collection is embracing men with a debut ready to wear collection with traditional sartorial underpinnings. Gerardo Cavaliere, who co-founded the women's label with his wife Margherita Cardelli, translated made-to-measure creations from his original Neapolitan tailoring business, Sartoria Giuliva, into a men's off-the-peg line.
    He re-worked classic Italian styles, creating shawl collar jackets - tweed for day, blue velvet for evening - and raglan coats in weighty herringbone and other cloths normally used for home interiors.

  • Facetasm Men's Fall 2020

    1 month ago - By WWD

    Hiromichi Ochiai paid tribute to diversity with his coed offering for fall, referencing the multicultural ambience of Paris while steering clear of cultural appropriation. His outsized three-piece wool suits, designed to fit every silhouette thanks to internal straps, rubbed shoulders with parkas featuring Native American appliqué patches and Chinese-style workwear and quilting.
    WWD Critique: Styled on non-professional models recruited on the streets of Paris and presented in a Rastafarian vegan restaurant in the 10th arrondissement, the collection had a definite streetwise aesthetic that...

  • Sandro Men's Fall 2020

    1 month ago - By WWD

    Ilan Chetrite worked a subtle Seventies flavor into his tailored looks for fall, outfitting his smart and youthful Parisian with crisp suits - in a tobacco brown or steely gray - and three-quarter-length houndstooth coats with rounded shoulders. Ticking the seasonal musts, outerwear included a series of fleece-collars on aviator jackets while fluidity came in the form of a loose button-up shirt stamped with French military symbols from the 18th century. The more adventurous looks were jean and jacket ensembles bleached with a cross pattern, while sneakers retreated from chunky to a more...

  • Represent Men's Fall 2020

    1 month ago - By WWD

    More a natural continuation than a new season was the key message for fall from brothers George and Michael Heaton. Revisiting their signatures - denim, flannel shirts and British luxury motoring inspired visuals - they delved further into Cool Britannia, adding a Scottish mohair car coat, a sleek Chelsea boot with a monk strap, shearling jackets and the Reptor, a new mid-top sneaker with a Nineties retro vibe. The siblings are also moving towards faux fur and vegan leathers.
