Let’s admit it: men’s fashion is no longer boring. Menswear has – over the years – evolved tremendously into new silhouettes that cross the boundaries of gender. Androgyny is no longer about women wearing trousers; as gender attitudes change, the men’s fashion cycle too is evolving at a frenetic pace.
The organiser of New York Fashion Week, CFDA, also recently added ‘unisex/non-binary’ as a new category earlier this year. More fashion shows are also turning co-ed with brands like Balenciaga, Tom Ford and J.W.Anderson joining the likes of Prada, Gucci and Alexander McQueen who started mixing things up since the early 2000s.
Separate looks for guys in a more one-shape-one-size approach are becoming more apparent. Silhouettes are going supersized with loosely structured coats and trousers billowing from shoulders and from hips.
Exaggerated looks have an oddly glamorous dishevelled effect – somewhat charming with a snip of faintly devil-may-care boyish vibe. Oversized coats and outerwear offer that certain effortlessness that makes heads turn (always for the right reasons).
Big jackets with matching pants are cinched with chunky belts or belt bags for a sharper look. Bold and bright colours like shocking pink, deep purple and canary yellow are presented in collections by Ermenegildo Zegna, Kenzo and Dries Van Noten.
From leather pieces to shearling overcoats and flowing robes to oversized puffer jackets, we take a quick look at the most wardrobe-worthy looks that are must-haves in your #OOTD ensemble this year (and the next because they are simply timeless).
