McQueen is King

I’m going back in the fashion calendar to January, where designers debuted the Menswear Autumn/Winter ’13-14 collections. Now, we’re starting the season that the fashion world have already set out trends for; so I’m going to remind you of them. That way there is no excuse for you to not be clued up on what’s hot, and what is definitely not, this season.


Across all four fashion weeks, it was obvious to see that mono tones are a huge trend for men this season.


Alexander Wang had some sharp tailored suits in black and grey geometric print, whereas Vuitton paired their tailoring with dense black parkas, an obvious recurring trend of the season. Coats should finalise your look.

Interestingly, Louis Vuitton also brought in a mix of navy and burgundy to their collection, setting a bleak, dark colour palette for the season.

Balenciaga’s collection was very defined, with the clothes being block mono coloured, and frequently pairing white trousers with black jumpers and jackets, and vice versa. From all houses, this season is sharp, edgy and tailored.

But the house that stood out the most this season was Alexander McQueen. Their collection enveloped everything from the other houses, but stood out with a striking twist of electric red. Trousers, jackets, jumpers. A statement red piece was paired with smart tailoring to give a mono look a bold new feel.

Boys, hit the high street to try and replicate the style. By now the trends have trickled down and River Island and Topman have started to feature these trends in their winter collection. Hurry lads, before I buy everything…
