About me

  • Autumn/Winter 2022 - MENS RUNWAY TRENDS
    Autumn/Winter 2022 - MENS RUNWAY TRENDSThe Men’s Autumn Winter 2022 shows started off the runway season with a much needed dose of optimism and creative progression, from the vibrant paintbox brights and moody hues that punctuated across Milan and Paris - both on and off the runway - hyperbolic silhouettes from Loewe, Y/Project, and LVMH Prize/Karl Lagerfeld winner Hed Mayner, and the migration to outdoor living that has been heavily influenced by winter sports such as skiing, which saw knitted balaclavas, and fair Isle knits feature
