Fashion week is upon us again! First stop, London. Designers are rolling out their Spring 2019 menswear collections, and we’ve rounded up the highlights thus far. Read on to see looks from Iceberg, Charles Jeffrey Loverboy and Chalayan.
Iceberg pioneered athleisure long before the aesthetic became street style clickbait. Creative director James Long stayed true to the house’s sporty roots with his Spring 2019 menswear collection that featured logo’ed tracksuits, motocross-inspired separates and luxe hockey jersey tops as main players.
Charles Jeffrey Loverboy
A fixture in the queer club scene, Charles Jeffrey presented a mix of outrageous and wearable fashion. The exaggerated proportions of some pieces (platform heels, bulbous protrusions and flared hips) harkened to the 80s club scene, even as heavily Comme des Garçons-inspired as they appeared. The suiting, however, was surprisingly sleek and wearable—standouts were a collarless grey jacket and matching pants with geometric seaming.
In the face of over-the-top runway shows (see: Moschino), Hussein Chalayan’s Spring 2019 menswear collection was unflinchingly cerebral. Using the abduction of the Sabines as a historical starting point, Chalayan translated the themes of aggression, resistance and harmony into his latest show. Particularly intriguing pieces include trench coats with criss-crossed collars, single-suspendered trousers, and suiting with quasi-belted, nipped in waists. Even more unique—all garments from the collection are unisex.
