In a lot of ways, Pitti Uomo has eclipsed Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week.  This is due, in large part, to the fair and its organizers’ ability to purvey a strong identity year after year, achieved through statement events (some projects that shine more than others, but nevermind) and a clear vision...
In a lot of ways, Pitti Uomo has eclipsed Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week.  This is due, in large part, to the fair and its organizers’ ability to purvey a strong identity year after year, achieved through statement events (some projects that shine more than others, but nevermind) and a clear vision and point of view.  Milan, spearheaded by Camera Moda has dimmed, mired by a format that is no longer...

There was a time when the London menswear shows lent heavily on the heritage of Savile Row to propel them into the spotlight and give them credibility.

There was a time when the London menswear shows lent heavily on the heritage of Savile Row to propel them into the spotlight and give them credibility. This was also at about the same time we laughably didn’t think men were too interested in clothes or fashion. But times have changed and now it’s not the Savile Row names one sees on the schedule to reinforce relevance, but the designers and...

Perhaps it’s because it’s the Spring/Summer 2020 shows – with emphasis on the 2020 part – that the menswear collections this season felt for the most part fresh and new.

Perhaps it’s because it’s the Spring/Summer 2020 shows – with emphasis on the 2020 part – that the menswear collections this season felt for the most part fresh and new. It will soon be a new decade after all. Designers pushed themselves to explore new ground, open new chapters, and create worlds that were personal to them, the result of which means the era of the per usual...

Over the past few menswear seasons there’s been relatively little attention paid, for the most part, to the seasons themselves. That’s not to say that there haven’t been coats and sweaters on show every winter, and shorts every summer – but that there’s a kind of standardisation in how we live...
Over the past few menswear seasons there’s been relatively little attention paid, for the most part, to the seasons themselves. That’s not to say that there haven’t been coats and sweaters on show every winter, and shorts every summer – but that there’s a kind of standardisation in how we live now, and in the way we think about clothing, which has blurred the distinction between fashion’s...

Remember when London’s menswear shows started off with a royal reception? Those leisurely, long-ago days (well, 2012 to be precise) feel a lifetime away now.

At some point in every major fashion designer’s career, there is a moment when they look back before they continue moving forward. The past is always a good map to reference when charting unknown territory, especially when the future is as uncertain, complicated, and unfamiliar as the one faced by today’s struggling fashion industry.

The question on everyone’s lips this evening at the Central Saint Martins’ BA show was: how did Fredrik Tjaerandsen do it?
