With fashion trends changing like the weather, designers are constantly leaving their mark on men’s fashion by bringing something new to the fashion table.
Below are ‘Four of the Best’ who’s talents ensure that their clothing will be worn for season’s to come, whilst instantly pulling them up the fashion ranks.
Five years as fashion director for Bergdorf Goodman under his belt and a wealth of design inspiration has placed Michael Bastian in this upcoming list.
His precedence is to design clothing that appeals to men’s usual day to day wear, but with an added dash of flair. The look incorporates classic American design, but with extra panache giving men of today impeccably tailored suits, lavish knitwear, sophisticated trench coats and other outerwear.
Ozwald Boateng is a self styled modernist designing fashion for the male that wants innovation tailoring. A self described ‘bespoke couture’; Ozwald is responsible for bringing Savile Row to the new generation. Clients of this classically refined look include Will Smith, Jaime Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson and Keanu Reeves among others.
The look combines sophistication with lavish fabrics and plush colours which provides that essential amount of flamboyance to any man’s wardrobe.
While sophistication and elegance are an appreciated element to any garment, a Rock and Roll ‘edge’ is equally as important when it comes to men’s fashion.
Keanan Duffty brings this ‘edge’ to anything he creates on his KD Collection, and has provided the eccentric edginess since 1999 to celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Steven Dorff, The Sex Pistols and David Bowie among many others.
This alternative look involves cutting edge designs, unconventional fabrics and British iconography which bring out the chaotic, hotel room smashing Rock Star inside all of us.
Tim Hamilton’s mission is to bring the ‘American aesthetic’ back to men’s fashion. Conservative items are given the ‘Americana’ look by adding modern flair that only Tim Hamilton could administer. The look incorporates masculine ‘Preppy-ness’ and offers a back to basics take on men’s fashion.
Garments include polo’s, cardigans and denim, and provide a new level of fashion for the Preppy-Dressed male of today.
