Runway | Your Ticket to 2018 Spring/Summer Menswear Collections
2018 Spring/Summer Menswear runway shows are coming to an end. Today, ModeSens fashion editors have curated a list of the most interesting collections: some are easy to wear, some are strange and playful, and some are avant-garde, unrestrained and brimming with talent. Below, 7 top runway collections you need to know right now.
This season Prada’s menswear collection intends to express the contrast between fantasy and realism. Easy-to-wear shirts, overalls and suits are the heavy hitters of this collection. The cut and silhouette extended the vintage style of the previous season. Jackets have become more tailored and simplified. The pants draped and fitted naturally, allowing models to move freely. The highlight of this season is having cartoons boldly printed on the clothes, rendering the style more fresh, unique and graphic.
Posh Poker Game
This season Dolce & Gabbana started playing the poker game. The royal Japanese motifs and color combinations remained true to the brand identity of high glamour. The most notable point is of course our Karry Wang Jun Kai, who welcomed his first runway show, and became the first model to both open and end the show in the history of Dolce & Gabbana fashion shows. Young and successful. This It boy ruled the runway this season.
One of a Kind
Xander Zhou unsurprisingly gave us the perfect answer key this season, using identities from multiple planes of consciousness to achieve a surreal return to earth. When jackets, trench coats, shirts, and polos were enhanced with design elements, they became full of individuality. The effect is both stylish and easy to wear.
Charles Jeffrey Loverboy
Invincible Force from Fashion’s New Generation
Scottish designer Charles Jeffrey with his brand Charles Jeffrey Loverboy 2018 Spring/Summer Collection brought a riot of colors to the runway. This season the designer still believes in unisexism, boldly painting illustrations on the models’ bodies and faces, imbuing the air with cheer and creativity. (You can also buy some non-permanent markers and paint yourself a shirt. Don’t forget to paint the face as well to really attract attention!)
It took us a second to realize that this is not a picture from Burberry’s fashion show, but a picture from Gosha Rubchinskiy’s 2018 Spring/Summer runway show. This time, Rubchinskiy and Burberry collaborated on eight pieces, starting from Burberry’s classic camel color, trench coats, and plaid fabrics, it’s clear that top luxury brands are looking for an entry point to break into a younger market. This season other than collaborating with Burberry, Rubchinskiy also partnered with Adidas, Retrosuperfuture sunglasses, and many other brands. How very Gosha.
Exploring Abstract Construction
Craig Green continued with his multi-dimensional structuring from previous seasons, exploring the possibilities of garment construction. This season’s inspiration came from designer Green’s gym equipment. He says gradually the designs became deconstructed tables. Then after that they became what the fashion journalists called “walking altar decorations.” So the collection is very comprehensive, covering everything from the body to the soul. Laymen report not understanding his designs, nor how to wear them, then let’s just appreciate them as pieces of art.
Teletubbies Stole the Show
Currently based in London, England, designer Bobby Abley is one of the most high-profile designers in the world of fashion right now. In his work, simple tailoring, neat coloring, playful and unrestrained style, as well as his just-because take on fashion released men’s inner child. It’s no surprise that Bobby Abley has already won over many celebrities for allowing them to get naughty. This season he partnered with Chinese girl brand ILOVECHOC and collaborated on the ILOVECHOC X BOBBY ABLEY 2018 Spring/Summer collection, bringing Teletubbies to the runway. Not only are Teletubbies incorporated in the clothes and bags, even models styled their hairs like Teletubbies in fun-loving cheer.
In the end, Bobby Abley even took his bow along with Dipsy, so cute~
