Men’s fashion is changing, new designers are emerging with new design and material proposals. Thus, provoking an interest in men towards styling. Fall and winter become allies to those who want to stand out from the crowd by taking risks with new colors, textures and tailoring, in order to look impeccable in any occasion.
Trenches or coats
Beyond the neutral or beige trench lies a world of possibilities. Being the last layer of the outfit, the trench is perfect for risk taking, for example this trench from Louis Vuitton, pre-fall 2018, with a galactic print or Belgian designer Kris Van Noten’s with a military green tone that contrasts with the print, making it an iconic piece for winter.
Pants and tailoring
Two of the most monotonous elements in men’s fashion are pants and tailoring, due to the risk of failing to dress according to the occasion.
However, one of the best ways to stand out is with designs that include prints, patches and embroidery, such as Fendi proposes for autumn-winter. Furthermore, for the risk-taking gentlemen, Dior Homme by Kris Van Assche features neutral colors with fitted blazers and pants, along relaxed fit jeans, t-shirts, contrasting colors, leather jackets and sneakers, to create a new vision of men’s fashion. Nonetheless, Giorgio Armani features the most traditional option with jogger pants in corduroy and velvet creating a classic look with a twist.
To success or failure
No outfit is complete if you lack good shoes and the best way to dare is to use a color range that goes beyond the usual, like Berluti’s proposal with these boots in different blue tones. In addition, Santoni, Italian brand by excellence, brings a more traditional option with loafers in gradient color that will seduce men that tend to take a more classic approach to styling.
The difference is in the details
Card holders, sunglasses, back-packs, watches and jewelry are elements that help complete and reinforce your style. However, there are no rules in accessories, so we have compiled a selection of must-haves.
Tom Ford shows us that traditional wallets are a thing of the past and that colors and materials are redefining the accessories, for example this iridescent leather card holder. Still, the perfect accessory for a gentleman is a good watch such as Mont Blanc’s Heritage Spirit Perpetual Calendar that offers a time experience with timeless design, a key element when choosing a piece of fine watchmaking.
Bracelets and bangles are simple or intrepid complements that can include opposing materials and textures. In addition, they can be used in different seasons and outfits such as these Écrou from Cartier.
A blazer away from success
It has happened to all of us at least once, not knowing what to wear. If you don’t want to wear the classic black jacket there is an easy choice at blazer distance. Tailoring gets reinvented and has choices for the classic gentlemen and for the bolder.
Black and white is the perfect combination for shirt and trousers, but not for a jacket. The jacket should feature a contrasting color or several colors, for example Tom Ford’s blazer with different tones and textures surpasses regular combinations to create total sophistication.
Neutral colors will also be our allies, with the attention spot in the materials, textures and applications, as in these options by Alexander McQueen, tailored in wool with diagonal embroidery or velvet with crystal embellishments, details that transcend the typical black jacket.
