“Can you make me look taller?”
With humor and style, you can go great distances. Fresh out of the Parisian Fashion Week debut on women’s ACNE, MyTheresa’s Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner shared a laugh and a moment right outside. Going beyond their impeccable style, it is their attention to detail and tailoring that elevates their eye for fashion and each other. The metal detailing on both their shoes, that good eye for just the right amount of color, and that all around sense of identity are just a few of the factors elevating them beyond. Talk about an it couple.
I have always admired Jone Nielsen’s aesthetic. Perhaps it’s his allure as a designer that gives him that edge to combine urbanity with classic nature. Or it’s the simple fact that he is a man in touch with his persona and suits it exactly right. Nonetheless, it’s Jone’s mix and match that not only make him worth snapping, but also put him on a one to watch radar.
Damir Doma’s aesthetics always inspire me. Something about those silhouettes catering to masculinity with a hint of an androgynous nature in their cut seems both modern and poetic. That’s why I always like to see men in Damir. Caught Alexander Lindseth, a design student at TEKO in Copenhagen. In all black, Alexander was walking proof of the idea of everlasting and a new sense of classical masculinity.
One of the most stylish, amicable faces of fashion week, Hamish Bowles from Vogue US is a synonym of his style. Always right on spot, with dashes of color and extremely sophisticated. A true man knows how to play with color and accessories and maintain his persona and personality. That is what Hamish does. Delightful.
There are few men that I look up to, but this one has never been an exception. With a clear vision of his style and his aesthetics, Angelo Flaccavento always shows up in the most classical, well-suited looks of fashion week. His fantastic collection of bow ties and his combination with classical elements, keep Angelo at the top of any menswear inspiration lists.
Pulling off the Hawaii look is a daring choice. Kim Grenaa of DANSK Magazine, however, puts some color into his outfit by adding some bright orange through his Hawaiian shirt that mixed with that hint of orange in his Burberry Prorsum shoes, combine into an urban look. The Danes have always been masters at that urban sophisticated look and Kim is no different. With a little bit more of color through his green Balenciaga cardigan and that classic denim Marni jacket, Kim is just one cool man.
With the school girl look being overdone, it’s sort of refreshing to see variations of such. More burgundy, yet this time through Fredrik de Lange as the college boy. The contrast of the Mickey Mouse tote and the Proenza Schouler bag makes for that youthful reference, yet it’s that unison in color that keeps it fresh and young.
Few brands are as detail-oriented as Balenciaga. Following their exclusive line, on their show date, boys in Balenciaga stood outside, as car doormen. Not sure if it was the unison in their outfit, the fact that they were there, or a combination of it all, but it simply added to the allure that involves the line. Totally Balenciaga.
Some people just have that alive sense of urbanity. In a denim pilot jacket and a hint of color, Kjetil Sjølingstad is the cool guy walking down the street, munching on a pear and just living life.
With the military/camo look being overdone, sometimes it’s refreshing to see a look that does not push too hard. Falling perfectly between masculinity and playful, Abdul creates a look in beige and khaki fitted perfectly for him. No need to use look like Indiana Jones or a military man to pull off the edged adventurous masculine look.
