RUNWAY RECAP

MEN'S FW19

Mario Grauso, President, and Joseph Tang, Fashion Director, round up their top trends and moments from the FW19 menswear collections in Milan and Paris

TOP TREND

Military Man

“Military influences took over with tailoring inspired by uniforms, outerwear with epaulettes and patch pockets, khaki greens and beiges as favourite colours, and utilitarian accessories like vests, backpacks, and belt bags out in full force.”
—Mario Grauso

TOP TREND

Outstanding Outerwear

“Say bye-bye to your plain coat because this season there is a coat to suit any kind of style—whether oversized, bright and colourful, classic in tweed, nylon-slick, or more!”
—Joseph Tang

TOP TREND

Bags, Bags, Bags

“Bags showed up everywhere, and were layered, attached, ornamented, practical, impractical, or worn all over the body—carried on backs, cinched around waists, or hanging around necks. You’re bound to find one, if not more, to love.”
—Mario Grauso

FAVOURITE COLLECTION

PRADA

“This was one of Prada’s best shows ever. All of the men’s—and women’s—looks were must-haves, from the clothing to the accessories. It made you want everything.”
—Mario Grauso

FAVOURITE COLLECTION

Berluti

“Kris Van Assche’s first show for Berluti was a triumph. He added his signature touch to the house’s traditional codes, exploring the importance of patina and leather while delivering razor-sharp tailoring and bold new ideas.”
—Joseph Tang

BEST VENUE

Take a Seat

“The Hermès show was held at the Mobilier National—the French government ministry for state furniture—and it was incredible to be surrounded by so much history and beautiful furniture from France’s past. But even with the incredible setting, the clothes still stood out.”
—Mario Grauso

BEST VENUE

Performance Piece

“I loved the setting of Celine at the Place de la Concorde, with a view of the Champs Elysées. Tapping into the new wave movement, a geometric light sculpture opened the show by drifting down the runway, shortly followed by models, and it ended with a sax solo by James Chance.”
—Joseph Tang

MUST-HAVE

Perfect Pieces

“It’s so refreshing to see clothing you can imagine wearing right away. Comme des Garçons Shirt was true to its name and delivered a perfectly designed double shirt, while Hermès showed the most luxurious shearling coat.”
—Mario Grauso

MUST-HAVE

Statement Accessories

“I’m all about updating an outfit with stand-out accessories, and both Dior Homme and Valentino delivered on this front. Louis Vuitton went big with an oversized quilted backpack, and Valentino made Birkenstocks cool with logo-fied and red hot versions of the two-strap sandal.”
—Joseph Tang
