Round-Up Discussion: Menswear A/W 21

published on 30 January 2021

Content editor Calum Knight and features editor Hetty Mahlich discuss the themes which defined the menswear A/W 21 season. Noting the bare schedule, with only Milan and Paris shows on the agenda, together with the shift to digital formats, they discuss the key takeaways from another unusual fashion season. Utilitarian luxury cropped up at Dior Men's and Fendi (complete with dressing gowns), with designers working with comfort in mind; the long johns at Raf Simon's Prada menswear debut are case in point.

Spoken word brought a personal touch to Wales Bonner, Ernest W. Baker and Louis Vuitton, where Virgil Abloh set the tone for fashion's social reckoning. Rick Owens presented male rage and Namacheko Plato's Fallout, whilst the Vetements message, however pertinent, was drowned out by the collection's sheer size (165 looks!) They also discuss Martine Rose's interactive show, which sent one resounding message: at the end of the day, we're all the same.
