Prada Runway Men FW2018

LAYER UP

"Layers of nylon were everywhere, but no one
did it better than Prada with the incredible
retooling of its historic nylon. The oversized
shapes and fresh take on layering made core
menswear pieces interesting again."
-Mario Grauso

Versace Rugged Patch Plaid Shirt

GET TO WORK

"The rugged work shirt got a luxe upgrade for Fall,
with designers playing with proportion and
fabrication. The shape, buttons, and patch
pockets were all there, but the traditional plaid
was either remixed in bright colours or ditched
altogether for a simpler blue-collar cool." -Joseph Tang

Junya Watanabe Canada Goose Collaboration Marni Black And White Plaid Coat Berluti Runway Plush Outerwear

THE MORE THE MERRIER

"Outerwear of all kinds took centre stage,
whether plush at Berluti, plaid at Marni,
or the cool collaboration between Junya
Watanabe and Canada Goose. For FW18,
one or two new coats just won't do, you'll
be coveting at least half a dozen."

Sacai Mixed Material Patchwork Bomber Jacket

MIX MASTER

"One fabric wasn't enough for designers this season.
Classics like coats and blazers were a mixed-material
manifesto, patchworking both patterns and textures to
jaw-dropping effect." -Joseph Tang
