This Is A Man’s World | Les Hommes F/W 2018-2019
January, like June, is the most male month of the year.
For antonomasia, this month revolves around the male figure, starting from London Fashion Week and then continuing with Pitti, Milan, Paris and New York, all the attention is magnetized on them.
Everybody is looking for the upcoming trends showed through presentations and catwalks but also for the most attractive street-style shots.
One of the most impressive shows this season ( and honest to tell one of the most incredible every season since ages ) was signed by Les Hommes, the brand created by the duo Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch.
I am a loyal admirer of the label and I wore several times, even if I am a woman.
For the next season, Les Hommes took inspiration from a romantic, medieval and dark atmosphere where the models on the catwalks become knights of impervious battles. A fiery past projected in the future, where urban contaminations blend into an iconic ideal of armors.
The battles made across castles give way to the most modern day-to-day fights with the city.
The coats and the shearling jackets, both with oversized fit, are the masterpieces of the whole collection. The sweaters replaced the sweatshirts while the camouflage is reinterpreted with heraldic graphics. The woolen trousers are also oversized and the evening jackets are shimmering and elegant.
The palette is dark and deep, from black to olive green and brown.
The total white sneakers create a major contrast with the dark tones of the clothes.
For the accessories, big attention is given to the elbow-long gloves with laces and buckles while the metal LH initials embellished both tie and caps.
The silhouette are over sized and rounded with a strong usage of layering.
A collection that left me amazed from head to toe and that marks another big success for the Belgian label. When you talk to me about menswear, personally it exist only one answer… Les Hommes.
