The Looks of Men’s Fashion F/W 18: A Round-Up

craiggreen_GRE0285As womenswear season commences, and the first fashion week of the season taking off in our native Copenhagen, we’re still digesting January’s menswear presentations. Hell, by the time we got to Paris, our body fluids consisted of 33% champagne and we were scrambling to tell apart Gabbana from GmbH (kidding, if that was the case, we shouldn’t be doing what we do). The reasons why this season felt particularly overwhelming was perhaps due to menswear still being the most exciting field in fashion today. In its third chapter of its very own golden age, menswear has not only overcome the standardized fascism of the 20th century suit, but is beginning to diverge from a particular “sportswear” silhouette, which dominated much of the early 2010s. With young, internet-savy consumers emerging across the world, today, men’s fashion is as exciting and as liberatory as its female counterpart – delivering visions that are not only breaking free from traditional gender stereotypes, but thinks critically about form, function, and materiality. Signification is about as hyperactive as a Roland Barthes book from the 70s – complete obscurity has overtaken postmodernism, which is only to be celecrated. From the creepy stoicism of Dior Homme to the kinky Pokemon get-ups of Walter Van Beirendonck – here are some of our favorite moments from the past season – with suggested archetypes who we predict to find such outfits not only appealing, but essential.
