Aug 25, 2015

From London to Paris to Milan to New York and Toronto, we take our first look at some basic essentials and staples pieces that graced Men’s Fashion Week around the world.

Back to Basic – It will be the most essential item in your wardrobe for fall. Turtlenecks dominated runway whether if it was used for layering or as a standalone. Designers across the globe took to the trend and featured it in its simplest form to complement a look or to make bold statement.

Hussein Dhalla for DALLA’s A/W 15 collection in Toronto remained classic, with men’s fur scarves that had masculine appeal and a mink trimmed coat that was surprisingly unexpectedly chic.

Designer Pablo Coppola’s second menswear installment for the heritage brand BALLY A/W 15, collection was inspired by director Wes Anderson’s film The Royal Tenenbaums. Fur pieces had a retro aesthetic and looked luxurious whether if it was a neck accessory or a cognac full body fur coat paired with a tonal ensemble with high tops.

Donatella Versace’s showstopper item from her Versace A/W 15 men's collection was a lavish caramel fur lapel and ivory coat.

Wrap me up – Scarves or neck ties can be overlooked as not an essential item for our wardrobes but with the right selection it can be the finishing touch to complete your look.

The use of a vibrant palette for the quintessential accessory paired well against a neutral collection for Hermes A/W 15.

For Fendi A/W 15 Karl Lagerfeld's oversized cashmere scarves exude drama, and is sure to be hit off the runway.While in house accessory designer Alessandro Michele’s for GUCCI A/W 15 use of a skinny necktie worked well with a military style jacket.
Fine Wine – There are two main colours for fall this season and one of them is burgundy. While we tend to gravitate towards the common autumnal palette of rustic orange, brown and red, there is something majestic about the burgundy tone.

Italian designer Alessandro Satori for Berluti’s A/W 15 collection made great use of the hue for a portion of his collection by meshing combinations of deep and medium burgundy tones while adding the right amount of burnt brown and cranberry to soften overall looks.

Whereas it was all in the details for Valentino’s A/W 15 couture collection, the use of burgundy played well in colour blocking combinations on sweaters and blended well with a mosaic pattern jacket.
