Take a look at some of the most surprising and popular trends from the runways of Men’s Fashion Week 2018.
5. The Color Brown
With the formerly drab color popping up at Louis Vuitton, Marni, Armani, Craig Green, Rick Owens, and Ermenegildo Zegna, it’s clear that brown is no longer dull. While some designers focused on the color as a primary shade, others used it ubiquitously throughout their accessories line. Brown is definitely the new black – or is it navy?
4. High-Waisted Pants
Can pants inspired by this generation’s Darth Vader be on-trend? It seems the answer is yes. As waistlines rise higher, men’s fashion is following the lead of women’s nipped-in waist. Styled with multiple belts or visible boxers prevents this look from achieving peak-Grandfather status.
3. Opt Outside Inspiration
Designers like Lanvin and Z Zegna showed lines seemingly inspired by your local REI. Sailing gear, technical parkas, and a plethora of cameo prints all made their way down the runway – perhaps in homage to Kanye West’s Season 5 Yeezy showing. In 2018, the trend seems to be blend in to stand out.
2. Raiding Dad’s Closet
If you thought the runway looked like a typical dad’s wardrobe, you’re spot on. Basic sweaters, jeans, and blazers came together to create a strong “dadcore” vibe at the 2018 Men’s Fashion Week. Dad-vibes were prolific on runways like A.P.C., Tod’s, Balenciaga, and Heron Preston.
1. Hawaiian Escapism
Copious Hawaiian printed-shirts saw the runway at Men’s Fashion Week 2018. While the trend has already hit street-style, designers did not let that stop their colorful and creative impulses. Paul Smith, Louis Vuitton, SSS World Corp have all created tropical prints worth grabbing.
