LONDON FASHION WEEK MEN’S AW’19
Fluid & theatrical
The 13th edition of London Fashion Week Men’s A/W 2019 had the theme of gender fluidity running through most shows, and while some were pretty out there and avant-garde, others were slightly more restrained in their interpretation of a gender-bender, while others remained heteronormative in nature.
Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt’s first-ever standalone showing was pretty much an extension of the school of style they themselves subscribe to – non-conforming and genderless, with models (not your run-of-the-mill kind) sashaying down the runway in croc-skin tube tops, fluid one-shoulder dresses and skirts of varying length.
The punk, gender-fluid label heralded by Charles Jeffrey was as theatrical as ever, with his sheer dresses with almost macabre motifs on ‘em paired with fringed veils, models with their faces painted like mimes, and makeup, lots of it, and plaid of course. Comparisons to McQueen have pretty much been bang on.
This former Virgil Abloh protege has been hailed for his futuristic take on men’s streetwear, even though he’s not a big fan of the term. Young Ross’s show was one of the most anticipated this time ’round,QASIMI
Khalid Qasimi has fast gone on to become on of the most sought-after designers on the menswear scene in London, for his brilliantly thought of clothes that many everywhere would want to don, from his cazh hoodies to his utilitarian pants. His well-tailored overcoats and jackets clearly his masterpieces.
