Street Style From The Fall 2021 Menswear Shows In Paris

Globally COVID-19 has postponed or completely cancelled a number of events, and fashion week was amongst many yearly happenings that have been altered.

Usually around this time, hip fashionistas would’ve traveled across the world to check-out the menswear shows in Paris. However, many shows this year resulted in digital screenings or, skipped fashion week in its entirety. There’s not a complete answer on when fashion week will revert back to normal, if at all but, that didn’t stop a few familiar faces from hitting the streets of Paris to reminiscence on street style practices.

The winner of fashion week is arguable street style where runway show attendees strut their best outfit and walk from show to show with a crowd of photographers following them. This year is obviously different and distant for safety reasons leaving the Parisian walkways perfect for a solo shoot. Creatives like Ellie Delphine and Carrole Sagba

MILAN — Retailers are adapting to seeing the collections on screens, and fashion brands are upping the ante on their digital presentations — although IRL events are still sorely missed.

All the shows at Milan Men’s Fashion Week, which closed Tuesday, were streamed, given the more stringent restrictions to curb the pandemic in Italy — but retailers gave a thumbs up to the efforts put forward by designers. Videos by Ermenegildo Zegna, Fendi and Prada were cited as particularly inspiring and their collections ranked among the retailers’ favorites.

“Designers are pushing the boundaries and creating new experiences that allow everyone from industry insiders to our customers to see the collections at the same time,” said Joseph Tang, fashion director at Holt Renfrew.

Loose and fluid silhouettes and cocooning softness ruled, as comfort continues to be key. Outerwear was hailed as especially strong. Trends included belted blazers and dressed-down coats;

Men’s Fashion Week Fall 2021 was inarguably about the clothes, with a toned-down, natural approach being the dominant trend when it came to hair and grooming. Whether in Milan or Paris, simplicity reigned supreme.

It can be fun when designers and stylists integrate daring makeup or inventive hairstyles, but they’re not always the easiest to translate into day-to-day life. With their emphasis on simplicity, the recent shows left us with looks that are inherently attainable, rather than simply aspirational.

Unkempt, tousled hair

It’s fitting that after a year of spending so much time cooped up at home — rolling out of bed and walking a few metres to a makeshift home office — unkempt bed-head would be all the rage. Of course, these looks were far from unkempt, meticulously placed and tousled just so. But the underlying message was clear: it’s OK to

Berluti to Unveil Fall Men’s Collection in Shanghai on March 5

PARIS While Berluti is opening the Paris Men’s Fashion Week calendar this season, it turns out its video will be just a teaser for the unveiling of the full collection on March 5 with a physical event in Shanghai.

Artistic director Kris Van Assche said the decision was made fairly early not to stage a traditional runway show in Paris and to hold a presentation in China, which has become a magnet for fashion brands as one of the few markets worldwide to enjoy economic growth during the coronavirus pandemic — notwithstanding a new round of lockdowns just ahead of the crucial Chinese New Year holiday shopping season.
