Marras imagined a British-Sardinian gentleman, fond of hunting with hounds in the wild countryside, but driven by nostalgia and a sense of home. “His style is a mash-up of memories.” A feel of rustic elegance was threaded through the collection, which was focused on outerwear. Peacoats and parkas were patchworked from an array of tweeds, jacquards, corduroy velvets, tartans, and felted wools. Worn inside-out exposing soigne linings, they had oversize, protective proportions; and though they looked sporty and functional, they conveyed the typical Marras flair for eccentric practicality. The British-Sardinian nobleman in question was obviously fond of a dapper touch of tailoring. Indulging in thick, knitted robe de chambre and parading sumptuous brocade tuxedo jackets.

Stockholm’s Filmhuset forms the backdrop for the Tiger of Sweden Fall/ Winter 2018 collection.

It was built as a haven for the art of film-making, filled with cinemas, production companies, costume rooms, a library, set-designs, studios and more.

The Issey Miyake show at Paris Men’s Fashion Week-Day 3 may have been many things but nothing as apparent as the fusion of different styles, iconic feels and wrapped up in some of the best prints seen so far. Instead of just using words alone, below are some points and pictures of just how inspired and artfully eclectic this particular collection was.
What made the Wooyoungmi show unlike any of the others was the cool and interesting tie between retro elements combined with country inspired feels with a modern twist. The striking colour palette that had soothing hues drawn from nature such as buttercup yellow, dusky blue, earth tones, maroon and pale grey.

Which in short means, that the House of Dior had in its wings a multitude of talented individuals working together to present a fresh take on the future of fashion from this global powerhouse.
The postponement of the Balmain Homme show according to schedule was well worth the wait.

The Alexander McQueen show for Spring/Summer 2019 was one of the best in terms of originality and style while still staying true to the brand’s design aesthetic, not forgetting the subtle inclusion of the unexpected, which is always a treat for the eyes.

Nothing could be as simple, innovative and with an impactful essence of Avant Garde than Hed Mayner at Paris Men’s Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2019.

The only visible colour was candy pink and powder blue in various tones and the only print was the pinstripes that were used to the minimum.
The mere mention of Rick Owens and the first thing that comes to mind is breaking the rules. Hence the show that had everything from drama, deconstructed silhouettes, exaggerated elements, architectural shapes, all moved in unison with the aesthetics of the man himself. The styling and attitude of the models, the raw grunge feels and minimalist approach made this collection one of those that moved into a league of its own.

From the abstract to the outlandish, the vibrant colours to the creative techniques of layering.

Here’s just how Facetasm fascinated us at Paris Men’s Fashion Week for 2019.
Designers Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund of Cmmn Swdn made opening night to Paris Men's Fashion Week every bit as memorable as the impact, energy and social awareness the collection had on the audience. Against a background of what looked like the landfills or somewhere in between, where many garments end up as waste and staying true to the hybrid element the brand is known for, the pieces shown couldn't have been any more hybrid than it was. An interesting mix of youthfulness and subculture, a mix of old-world aesthetics and contemporary, tipping the future of fashion vibes that were both edgy and elegantly sleek.

Who knows whether the textiles imprinting of his maternal family or the dash and artistic breadth of his father Gianandrea – one of the tutelary deities of 20th century music – had the upper hand, but it is certain that Pino Gavazzeni had a fortunate entrepreneurial intuition when in 1975 – in the wake of the affirmation of pret-a-porter garments – he created Bagutta which immediately established itself as an international reference point for high quality shirt-making for men and women that was synonymous with creativity and Italian style, dividing itself between its own brand collections and the production of garments for some of the greatest Made in Italy stylists. Now that Pino’s interest is mainly as a shareholder, his son Antonio and nephew Andrea are at the helm of the company, respectively as CEO and president.

The Spring collection had a retro feel, with slightly oversize suits; worn with waistcoats and ruched shirts, they exuded a nostalgic elegance. Denim single-breasted jackets with 3-D appliques were tucked into roomy trousers, and allover floral prints had a feminine flair, in evidence on generous silk shirts or ensembles. Macrame patches were scattered on zippered bombers, fitted formal blazers, and safari jackets. As single pieces, they could add a poetic, gentle flair to the most streamlined masculine wardrobe—which is, of course, the antithesis of everything Antonio Marras stands for.
