After one week of going round in circles over whether I should or should not do a post on Men’s Fashion (with Menswear Fashion Week and all that) I gave in. The reason behind my utterly disturbing incertitude was simple. I do not know men’s fashion. There I said it. Hold on. I know when a man looks good, is well dressed, stylish & polished… but writing about it? Really? Not quite right down my street. Besides, here at FashionTag the focus has always been women’s fashion. But then… I had this revelation… FashionTag is about fashion & style, and I do have a few lads out there who sometimes click on my humble blog (thanks mates) and read my ramblings or love my photos. Then it’s my male friends. They’ve been asking me for tips and posts lately I was like: ”What?” (so this one’s for you mates). Plus… us ladies are always on the prowl for the next best thing to get our men… We all know how we want our men to look. Hell we get so comfy and full of ourselves every time we put on our stylist hats for them. Aha! So let us all ladies and gents both kick back, have a look & get inspired by what designers have in stores for men, for 2013 – 2014 Fall / Winter. Here are my faves so far!
And for some reason I cannot shake the ‘‘Is it a man’s world” song out of my head, while I’m writing this. Clearly it does not apply in fashion industry. Well it’s actually the only industry where men are a bit discriminated and not given the same attention, while women are the ones cutting the cake and eating it. Still when it comes to fashion week, for the past 2 years or so… you gents cannot complain. You’ve had the same attention, same VIPs sitting front rows (you can never go wrong or ask for better than Anna Dello Russo, right?) fantastic clothes, collections, makeup artists, street photographers (btw have you seen Tommy Ton‘s snap shots? Ah-mazing. I’ll do a post on men’s FW street style these days). It’s becoming the same posh show as the Women’s Fashion Week. Ah… not complaining at all.
So boys when it comes to fashion what do you love & hate? What do you go for? What are your staples? Are you adventurous or rather classic? Is your style smart or casual? How often do you shop? Where? Oh my… Well according to the world’s biggest designers all you sexy lads should dress classic with a twist next fall & winter. Burberry had some simply fabulous trench coats, Marc Jacobs was all about the rock edgy style, Dsquared had some of that old jazz, bohemian smart vibe to their collection, while the Italians were all about the muscular glamour (I don’t even know if this term even exists). I absolutely loved Gucci & Armani. I love the idea of a man in a reinvented suit, leather dark coats, bicker jackets over expensive textures. Dolce & Gabbana collection was again a story you couldn’t but love. From the old Sicily, inspired by the altar boys shirts, the retro peasant elegance and relaxation. Not too classic or easy to pull, yet perfect for those of you who are more experimental and not afraid to step out of the box, style wise. And before you plunge into the photos… one more thing. Apparently the waistcoat will have a huge comeback! You’d better start working on your six packs lads!
