Our favorite new moments in fashion, hand-picked by our editors.
Alexander McQueen SS24 Menswear
Alexander McQueen menswear is here, and along with it, the message of simplistic elegance and an eye for finer details. The Spring/Summer 2024 men’s collection is inspired by archival traditions within the McQueen fashion house, such as sculptural silhouettes with soft curves. Formal designs are aesthetically masculine with feminine touches, such as wool double-breasted tailored coats, suit pants, pleated tailored shorts, vests, and sweaters. However formal the collection may be, it feels cool and relaxed in certain pieces, such as an abstract pair of pants, a leather trench coat, and black and gold metallic prints. Other pieces ooze decadence with hints of crystal embellishments, sequins and embroidery, and even feathers. Everything is tonal white, black, and grey, besides vibrant pops of yellow and bubblegum pink. Check out the collection on Alexander McQueen’s website.
Balenciaga Winter 2023
With its return to its origins in Paris, where Balenciaga first opened up shop, the French couture fashion house has entered a new era of reconstruction, much like the physical building of Balenciaga’s fashion house is being reconstructed in Paris. In a bid to leave behind all of the shockwaves that the label has created, the Winter 2023 collection clings to formal and casual styles without excessive amounts of drama; however, true to Balenciaga fashion, oversized still has a place within their designs, this collection, such as wide-leg pants, baggy tops, and large fur coats. Signatures of the label are still plentiful with their infamous Sock Shoe and the Fennec and Speed eyewear. Check out the collection on Balenciaga’s website.
Vivienne Westwood FW23
There is no doubt that Vivienne Westwood left a sizeable hole after her passing. Impossible to forget and forever to be remembered through her history, impact, and even her lineage, Vivienne Westwood’s Fall/Winter 2023 collection sees her own family members modeling the clothes in her hometown of Hollingworth, England. Themes of rebellion stood tall in Westwood’s designs throughout the years, and the rebellious nature of her designs is still standing strong in this collection through effervescent plaid patterns sewn into blazers and trousers, overflowing trench coats with matching ribboned hats, and punk-chic ruffled dresses made from black tulle. Check out the collection on Vivienne Westwood’s website.
