Fashion month is right at our door, and menswear design is well underway. Over this last month collections have been shown in London, Milan and Paris. While the notion of gender fluidity was present, I felt that there was a strong masculine feel on the runways. They were inclusive, but made a dramatic statement. There was a nod to the outdoors, earthy palettes and heavy fabrics. Coats of course ruled in almost every presentation, but each was so distinctively different from the others in their detail. Fur collars, hem lengths, patterned sleeves, there was a style for everyone. One thing was obvious though, these guys were impeccably dressed.
Louis Vuitton collaborated with New York streetwear label, Supreme, which I thought was an interesting blend of fashion. I also liked the logo necklace very much.

Rick Owens collection was called abstract, but this is everyone’s worst nightmare of what wearing a puffer jacket looks like. I think this presentation was a waste of time. Is fashion art if no one wants to wear it?
