Fashion News of the Month- Menswear Shows

Collage of runway shows

While everything else in the world slows down after the holidays, the fashion industry takes no breaks. Here is the January fashion news recap that you won’t want to miss…

Last week we began seeing some fall/winter runways with new collections and collabs breaking out. If you were here with us in October you remember we closely followed and summarized the biggest trends for this upcoming spring/summer so if you haven’t read that yet, you can find it here. If you don't remember, fashion shows are always showing the next seasons. So if we are approaching spring in real time they will show fall and winter collections and vice versa. 

This past week marked the start of the menswear shows in Paris! Now that we have refreshed our memory let's get into the biggest overall themes we saw: 

Modern Tailoring: 

Classic tailoring got a contemporary twist, with brands like Dior Homme, Louis Vuitton, and Jacquemus showcasing sleek suits and structured silhouettes. Clean lines and precision cuts were the name of the game.

Athleisure Ascendancy: 

Athletic-inspired looks continued to dominate the runway, with Balenciaga and Off-White leading the charge. Think sporty silhouettes, oversized hoodies, and graphic prints merging streetwear and high fashion.

Colorful Expressions: 

Bold, vibrant, and unconventional hues took center stage, with brands like Kenzo and Paul Smith embracing a rainbow of colors. From electric blues to sunny yellows, the runways were a visual feast of vibrant shades. The men wearing the same thing every day is quickly becoming a thing of the past. 

Texture Play: 

Textures were aplenty, with designers like Alexander McQueen and Givenchy experimenting with luxurious fabrics. From plush velvets to intricate jacquards, the emphasis was on tactile experiences.

Oversized Everything: 

Oversized garments were everywhere, with Balmain and Vetements leading the charge. From voluminous coats to baggy trousers, comfort and exaggerated proportions were key. This may seem contradictory to the beginning trend, but you really have to look at when and how these pieces are being styled. 

Retro Revival:

Nostalgia was in the air, as brands like Gucci and Prada drew inspiration from the past. Retro prints, vintage-inspired accessories, and throwback silhouettes added a touch of nostalgia to the collections.

Gender-Blurring Fashion: Breaking down traditional gender norms, brands like JW Anderson and Rick Owens showcased gender-fluid designs. Androgynous pieces, fluid silhouettes, and inclusive fashion took the spotlight.

These were just a few of the standout themes that graced the men's fashion show in Paris, January 2024. It's always exciting to see how designers push boundaries and redefine men's fashion. We will see you next week when we discuss how to implement a style that you like into your closet!
