He did it –  again, again...and again! Philipp Plein. Plein Sport. Billionaire. Three days, three shows. Uff! No designer other than Philipp Plein is crazy enough to commit to three massive show productions within such a short lapse of time, right in the middle of Milan's men's fashion week. Like...
He did it –  again, again...and again! Philipp Plein. Plein Sport. Billionaire. Three days, three shows. Uff! No designer other than Philipp Plein is crazy enough to commit to three massive show productions within such a short lapse of time, right in the middle of Milan's men's fashion week. Like it to not, we were intrigued, which is why we snuck in backstage after Plein's second show –  the...

While trends tend to be a thing of the past amid the changing landscape of fashion, one's spider senses can definitely start to tingle when there's a new mood or feeling being set. Sometimes it's something that’s already been there, it just needs a little more help to be put on the map and become...
While trends tend to be a thing of the past amid the changing landscape of fashion, one's spider senses can definitely start to tingle when there's a new mood or feeling being set. Sometimes it's something that’s already been there, it just needs a little more help to be put on the map and become visible. In Milan right now, that comes via a handful of brands and labels that, vibrant in...

    Love – the good, the bad and the ugly – seems to have inspired two major Italian fashion houses this season, unconsciously putting them in a Baz Luhrmann-esque face-off: two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Milan where we lay our scene. Both brands left quite an impression, after showcasing their respective Spring/Summer 2018 menswear collections. Dolce & Gabbana, for...

Up until now, Milan feels as though it's been lacking. Aside from a handful of labels - namely Marni, MSGM, Sunnei and Damir Doma - the feeling is that there's not all that much to write home about. Notable names are missing, or opting to show somewhere else or via a new format, which leaves the...
Up until now, Milan feels as though it's been lacking. Aside from a handful of labels - namely Marni, MSGM, Sunnei and Damir Doma - the feeling is that there's not all that much to write home about. Notable names are missing, or opting to show somewhere else or via a new format, which leaves the schedule feeling a little empty in substance. Until Prada. Because what lacks elsewhere can be made...

While the guys might have been wearing studded leather biker jackets and sequin bombers, and the girls might have been doing their best riff on Rizzo, who knows when Philipp Plein sent out a rendition of The Fast and The Furious meets Grease. The aforementioned looks wandered down a road-like catwalk - accessorised rather crassly with cigarettes one should add - and fast cars continued to...

It might have been the sunny first day of a shiny new season, but it was impossible to ignore the uneasy, morning-after feeling that hung over London’s menswear shows yesterday. It's still less than a week since the attack in Southwark, just a few bridges downriver from the BFC's official venue on the Strand. And Thursday's general election, preceded by a short, bitter campaign, had just thrown...

In the realms of womenswear, the Eighties has been hanging around as a style sticking point for some time now. But among menswear, it’s taken a little more time to catch up. That time is nigh, compounded by Topman’s spring/summer 2018 offering in London, which was an ode to Blitz kids and David Bowie, a club culture heyday and a certain type of tailoring that requires a certain sort of...

As first jobs go, consulting for Balenciaga isn’t a bad one. And ten years after launching her namesake label that’s exactly what Martine Rose has found herself doing - all the while finding her own brand coming into its own.

By now we all know that London Fashion Week Men’s is celebrating five years of existence. And, of course, once again conversation quickly turns to the future of menswear fashion week: how precarious is it? How much longer will it run, won’t it run? Do we need one?
