!! OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Walter Van Beirendonck FW17 men’s collection !!

Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck is a fashion legend, one of the original “Antwerp Six” (along with Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Bikkembergs, Marina Yee, and Dirk Van Saenes), and his singular vision has not only endured, but is beautifully executed in his latest collection, shown earlier this week in Paris. The Berlin “licky bear” icon features prominently, along with giant cartoon hands, gay camo, velvet tailoring, lovely topcoats, and fun knitwear.

!! OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Bernie chic in the Balenciaga FW17 men’s collection !!

Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia has perhaps achieved a first in fashion, no small task: He made us do a double take to make sure one of his runway models wasn’t literally a door canvasser for the Bernie Sanders campaign (see photo above). Well done! Bernie Sanders himself even had a few thoughts to contribute on the collection.

As a counterpoint to the civically engaged volunteer look, Gvasalia also presented rumpled retrofuture businessman looks and a layered puffer vest ensemble that prompted this comment from Bernie, “With all due respect to Mr. Gvasalia, who I’m sure is a terrific person, we’ve been wearing this look in Vermont for years.”

!! OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Cédric Charlier FW17 men’s collection !!

Cédric Charlier‘s mens’s wear debut in Milan earlier this week was equally pleasing for its sophistication as for its sense of fun. Leather pants, layered hoodies, monochrome matched sets, and Technicolor outerwear all featured prominently.

!! OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Marni FW17 men’s collection !!

Fall/Winter 2017 is the first Marni collection not overseen by founder Consuelo Castiglioni, so we weren’t sure what to expect, but incoming creative director Francesco Risso (a Prada veteran) continued the madcap, mid-century vintage vibe that Marni is known for while exploring new proportions. Oversized pajama suits, trousers, and shaggy coats were shown alongside puffer separates, hand-painted shirts and plenty of fur hats.
