Zegna: Like You’ve Never Seen Before

It came as a surprise to hear Pilati insisting that his transformation of Zegna is happening in gentle increments, because on the evidence, he’s already come a long way in shifting the shape of the brand.

A. Sauvage – African Art for the Suit and Tie

It’s always been a pondering artistic question regarding menswear as to the amount of interchangeable garments available with a gents suit. The number of designers who want to rescue the suit and present it as not-just-a-dressy-thing for today’s man keeps on growing. It is, of course, a testament to how important this menswear staple is, [...]

The Valentino Man

It seems ironical that the designers of Valentino, who pride themselves on some of the world’s most sought after suiting for men, have also designed what the world fashion market suggests is the most sought-after sneaker. It’s ironic, yet not surprising as we see the luxury high-end treating the mid-market as a vessel for uber-artistic [...]

2014 TREND: Taking WHITE Seriously in Menswear

White Noise Saying white will be trendy is a bit of a misnomer because in fashion, white is as classic as it gets. But when it turns up repeatedly, in almost every collection in the form of coats, shirts, pants, suits and shoes, you know it is time to take white seriously. White is incredibly [...]

GABRIELE PASINI’S OPTICAL FLOWER

The mood of the forthcoming GABRIELE PASINI SS15 collection is bodied forth in black and white, expressed through a myriad of different prints, geometries and nuances in both the outerwear and the knitwear.

Menswear trends according to Pitti Uomo

“With Pitti Uomo begins a month-long cycle that tends to leave even the most dedicated follower of fashion feeling as glutted as a foie gras goose on corporate design agendas.” Pitti Uomo? Who?

Marc Jacobs’ Resort for Men 2014 – YES PLEASE!

DAMN RIGHT. We’re really enjoying the written word on the sweaters, which of course was started in the 70′s exposing political dislike among the public. Today, it’s just a given that some of the most powerful designers are going to keep some core items in their collections, saying ‘sumthin sumthin;’ AKA MAXWELL! (Big shout out). [...]

#Balmain FW Menswear Collection: On Safari

Last season’s menswear collection for Balmain, created by Rousteing we entitled “The Lion’s Den’….The colours were safari driven, tonal, latte almost alchemist-esque. This season, Rousteing has again worked a safari theme. Yet this collection arrives in tones of olive green, khaki, and camel, and a more-than-fair amount of exotic animal prints from leopard to zebra. [...]
