After a wonderful and successful week in Milan, the fashion pack flew all the way to the French Capital to kick-start yet another week of back-to-back men’s fashion shows; and truth be told, it was even better than we imagined. The week started with some pretty amazing shows, from Balmain’s to Dior Homme’s and Louis Vuitton’s collection – all of which attested to Paris’ immense role in the fashion industry.

Designers, models, fashion editors, influencers, the world’s biggest fashion connoisseurs and photographers all gathered in the French capital to participate in the week-long series of runway shows and yes, just as we expected, the street style action was almost as awesome as the runway fiesta. And as all the fashion endorsers have descended on the city of love, we couldn’t help but notice all the great looks spotted on the runways, from Paul Smith’s colorful coats to Dior’s unmatched looks and Louis Vuitton’s unique mastery of leather. And while the big fashion month is still a few weeks away, it looks like all the designers have taken a head-start on all the glorious fashionable statements.

That said, we’ve scoured the best looks spotted on the runways and we promise, they’re worth the wait.

All the Best Looks at Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Men’s Runways

January is probably one of the busiest months in the fashion industry – right after February and September – as it is jam-packed with back-to-back shows, from Men’s runways in London, Milan and Paris and finally, the big Haute Couture week in the French Capital. The street style crowd was as stylish and fashion-forward as the models walking down the men’s runways and we can’t say we’re not looking forward for what’s yet to come.

One thing we’ve noticed is that there was a massive shift in the menswear department, as the trends have been fluctuating more and more towards gender ambiguity. That ultimately means: less differentiation and more androgyny. That said, the men’s runways were chockfull of colorful style for Fall/Winmter 2019-2020 and it all seems very promising. Designers have all shown off their best taste in menswear, from big brands and fashion houses such as Versace, Prada, Dolce &Gabbana and Emporio Armani – amongst others – and they’ve really upped the ante for the next round of runway shows in Paris.

And so, we’ve rounded up the best looks to hit Milan Fashion Week.

Statement-Making Cardigans

Searching for a less casual layering alternative to a blazer? Look no further. Cardigans are your perfect winter companions, taking you through the cold weather in warmth and style. So what’s a cardigan?

It’s a knitted jumper that fastens in the front and that can be layered atop a shirt, a normal tee and pretty much anything else. What makes it a wardrobe staple is that it serves the same purpose of a jacket – keeps you warm and can be both buttoned for a more formal look and unfastened for a casual one. Brands such as Gucci, Polo Ralph Lauren and many others have all put their little spin on the cardigan and it’s all very much promising. Now how to wear it with style? First things first; get a good fit and let it properly wrap your body. Other matters such as the color, the thickness of the knit and the style is all up to you! Our advice? Go for shawl collars this season.

And so, we’ve scoured the best cardigans in the Photo Gallery.

Sole DXB is back from December 6th till the 8th and is introducing with it – for the very first time – Dior Men’s SS2019 Collection and the Capsule Boy Collection by Baby Dior.

Dior Men’s capsule collection by Kim Jones is actually being unveiled in four pop-up stores around the world – from Tokyo to London, Los Angeles and Dubai – to introduce the Bee, the House’s icon revisited by New York artist KAWS and appearing in XXL versions. Dior’s signature is also being revamped by KAWS and it’s all very promising! The pop-up shops will be also showcasing an onsite printing atelier for personalized creations, allowing the House’s clients on the opening day to personalize their t-shirts and tote bags with the name of the location, the time and date of purchase and the number of items sold up to that moment.

The pop-up at Sole DXB spans over three levels with a lounge bar, sneakers wall and twelve-meter high bees by KAWS illuminating the space both inside and out. The revisited Dior logo appears illuminated on the front with exaggerated proportions, reminiscent of the creative world of graffiti.

Berluti presents Kris Van Assche’s First Capsule Collection

Kris Van Assche has finally introduced his first capsule collection for Berluti, a little something to anticipate before his first runway presentation in January 2019.

Indeed, the Spring/Summer 2019 capsule collection represents a reinvented version of Berluti, where silhouettes and volumes are defined and black canvases are tailored into two-button suit jackets, white poplin shirts and black and white tuxedos. Menswear basics introduce a new understated notion, featuring sportswear garments such as the bomber jacket, the letter jacket and the track top as well as bottom.­­

In this spirit, Artistic Director Kris Van Assche takes Berluti’s heritage and tastefully blends it with the codes of a new intergenerational era. Picture the classic ‘Alessandro’ oxford reimagined with a thicker leather sole, and the brand’s traditionally hand-worked patina signature developed in a dual blue and red colourway, echoed in bags. New beginnings are echoed through innovative iterations, such as an eighteenth century manuscript motif inherent to Berluti, featured in a graphic print on casualwear and bags. The collection also features the new ‘Berluti 1895 Paris’ signature, emblazoned on a jacket, sweatshirt and t-shirt as a nod to the future.

Sift through the Photo Gallery below to view the collection’s look book, which was photographed at the Berluti workshop in Ferrara, Italy in June 2018 by Alessio Bolzoni and styled by Mauricio Nardi.
