The Fashion Fix – AW19 Menswear Trends
Here’s my selection of trends extracted from the Autumn/Winter 2019 Menswear Collections that are sure fire hits for the coming year…
Oversized Trench Coats
A trend that was majorly reawakened thanks to Riccardo Tisci’s debut collection for Burberry last season, the trench coat has continued to materialise as big news for Men’s Autumn/Winter 2019.
Contrasting renditions of the coat arrived roomy and ready for action in an accumulation of fabrics at the likes of John Lawrence Sullivan, E. Tautz and Daniel Fletcher.
Despite athleisure gear dominating the styles of recent seasons, for AW19 we witnessed a showering of suits, albeit not in their traditional form. Instead of seeing tailoring in its traditional sense, the majority were seen cut from denim as opposed to flannel.
Double denim was the look of the season, from neat little sixties-esque style denim combinations to oversized denim at E. Tautz and Bobby Abley.
The Matrix Reloaded springs to mind when lashings of hard-core thus stylish leather descend on the catwalks, transcending a hells angels’ zeitgeist amongst the 2019 Men’s Collections.
From bondage pieces and heavy-duty leather corsetry at Art School and Daniel Fletcher to the Meatloaf-comeback-tour at Pronounce and Bobby Abley and not forgetting the weighty matte leather fisherman’s smock showcased at Hussein Chalayan.
Mirks (aka ‘man skirts’)
Yep, you’ve heard it – mirks! A singular cylinder of material arrived as the equivalent of a man’s skirt and it was a trend that appeared more than a couple of times throughout the 2019 Men’s Collections.
Gender norms were obliterated with the likes of Iceberg illustrating wearable patchwork kilts infused with a streetwear-inspired vibe and Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY channelling Dusty Springfield-like minis that gave a nod to the ’60s.
