Asking whether runway fashion inspires street style or vice versa is akin to asking the loopy chicken-or-egg question. One thing’s for sure though: For this Spring 2018 season, some of menswear’s biggest vanguards looked to the streets for their collections’ mood. Sneakers have become the new derbies in Valentino, while cross-body fanny packs, the cooler man satchels in Louis Vuitton. And there’s no doubting where they came from.
In London, Milan, Florence and Paris to discover menswear’s latest offerings, it was that time of the year where style peacocks comprising editors, buyers, models and other assorted fashion fans from every corner of the world came to roost. Fashionably, that is. These snazzy show-goers — the likes of model Richard Biedul and stylist Ana Gimeno Brugada — made it clear that the runways only told half the story.
From baggy pants to nip-tuck shirts to newsboy caps, we advise you to keep your eyes peeled for these new trends that may sooner or later be adopted on next season’s runways. Swipe through to see all the best street style looks served to you by the sartorial-savvy gents — and ladies — who spruced it up for Men’s Fashion Week Spring 2018.
