What will men be wearing next winter? Although we still haven’t taken off our woolly coats, the trends for the next cold season are already being presented in London, Milan, Paris and Florence. We had a look at the most important looks on – and off – the runways.
This much is clear: the athleisure trend is dominating menswear, which means more sports fashion in everyday situations. That was very visible at Pitti Uomo in Florence. Where street style is the order of the day. Lots of visitors wore sneakers or paired suits with sporty rucksacks. Baseball hats were another essential accessory.
The colour black and a generous dose of nylon dominate Prada’s autumn 2018 collection. Soon in a shop near you: oversized cargo pants, tight zipped jumpers and yellow bucket hats – freely quoting ’90s fashion.
At Louis Vuitton the theme is “au revoir”. Because designer Kim Jones is saying goodbye with his last fashion show in Paris. He has been behind the menswear collections at the luxury label for seven years. Male leggings worn with shorts are very eye-catching here, as is the generous use of the LV logo – making a clear statement.
At Brioni, on the other hand, there was a premiere: Nina Maria Nitsche showed her first collection for the house. “Everyday icons” such as three-piece suits, trench coats, caban jackets and car coats have been subtly reinterpreted by the designer.
