Menswear Fashion Weeks are over. And these are my favorite collections from the runways that I wish I can wear by next season (a man can dream, right?). I probably missed some gems, so I would like to hear yours in the comments.
During his career, Raf Simons has used clothing to pay tribute to his favorite artist and honor his ancestors. This Spring 2017 collection is an ode to Robert Mapplethorpe, an American photographer whose work explored sexuality and homoeroticism, most controversially chronicling New York’s late-’60s BDSM scene.
Madame Woo & Katie Chung referred to their approach for Wooyoungmi Spring 2017 collection as “organized chaos”. With the wall-workings of minimalist and conceptual artist Sol LeWitt forming their artistic influence, they conducted a swirling lines, tri-stripes, block colours, and grid-prints to the runway. High-waisted pants, overskirts in suit fabric, extra-long fluted sleeves, and sartorial shorts are their key items this season.
Designer Consuelo Castiglioni continued to present a quirky collection with retro aesthetic, cool juxtapositions of proportions and of course the usual set of odd color combos for the new Marni Spring 2017 collection. I love it kind of nerdy cool kid vibes. If I could only wear one brand for the rest of my life it would be Marni.
No other designer quite dominated the fashion headlines this year like Alessandro Michele, the creative designer of Gucci. Everything he created was picked up upon and duplicated, from the delicate prints to the ungainly models, especially the fur lined loafers that had caused such a fuss at the men’s show. The clothes were cinematic, romantic, eccentric and androgynous at the same time. It was like a Wes Anderson wonderland and I love it!
