It seems that the long-overdue streetwear trend has finally begun its descent from mainstream style consciousness. The return of menswear to its glory days of master craftsmanship and refined tailoring has come to the forefront as a new age in fashion commences.
the fall-winter 2020-2021 collections, hailing from the world’s fashion capitals, have given that glimpse of renewed hope with its fidelity to what fashion is really about: intelligent design. From Kim Jones’ haute couture details sewn into ready-to-wear pieces with elegant embroideries peeking from long-sleeved shirts and ’50s silhouettes and styling at Dior Men to Dries Van Noten’s gender-fluid accents of lavish (fake) fur shawls and bejeweled accessories crawling on leather belts and coat toppers, menswear is exactly where it needs to be at the moment with its exuberance and expression of the modern dandy.
Here are the trends we are recommending everyone to try in the new decade. Whether it’s the color red dominating the season, or the classic winter tartan print turned whimsical, you’re bound to find quite a few gems that would up your style.
Print on print
Whether it’s modern geometric prints or ’70s flower power patterns, winter 2020 is all about the total print look. Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Sacai take the top prize.
Man purse 2.0
After the bumbag’s resurgence in the last few years, it is the time for the man purse to have its moment in the limelight. Our top picks come from Gucci, Fendi, and Prada.
What’s more elegant than a top-to-bottom red ensemble for the season (and decade) in fashion? Get your style cues from Off-White’s Virgil Abloh and Givenchy’s Claire Waight Keller.
Fashion labels Hed Mayner, JW Anderson, and Raf Simons all showed how oversized coats are the must-haves of the season. Be sure to don one that’s structured with strong.
For winter, the daytime disco look takes center stage with Dior Men, Alexander McQueen, and Balmain championing the movement.
It’s definitely the year 2020 as more and more fashion houses release models in gender-fluid pieces. Tyrone Dylan Susman opened the Rick Owens show in a one-sided jumpsuit, while Hugo Gillain donned an off-shoulder leather top for Ludovic de Saint Sernin.
