Is Men's Fashion, Once Overlooked, Finally Taking Off?

Posted by on

NEW YORK (AFP) – Part cowboy, part dandy and dressed entirely in denim, Michael Bastian is a rising star in American men’s fashion. And when he thinks about the future, he smiles.

The era of the fashion-conscious, accessory-wearing and jewellery-loving man has dawned.

Across the United States, clothing brands are multiplying, fulfilling increasing demand for smart and casual wear, accessories and jewellery and mining the potential in a market on the rise.

Menswear and Fashion

“Previously, it has been marginalised,” said Mark-Evan Blackman, assistant menswear professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology, one of New York’s most prestigious design schools.

“People were not thinking of it as being vibrant and sexy and fun. That really has changed within the last decade, and it’s really hitting its stride now,” said Blackman.

Commentators now predict that New York could get its own fashion week just for men in July, attributing the revolution in sartorial demand to bloggers followed by millions online.

“It’s been driven by the menswear blogs,” said Bastian, a designer with an eponymous label and former men’s fashion director at luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman in New York.

“Men are catching up to the women… they’re more interested in style and in fashion and how they look,” he said.

Behind him, models dressed in suede and slim-fit shirts from his spring/summer 2015 collection inspired by Arizona and New Mexico are filmed and photographed by designers and critics alike.

 

Blogs, Kanye and Jay-Z

A feathered bronze chain hangs around the neck of one. Another sports a snakehead bracelet.

Bastian says an entirely new generation is excited about menswear — be it heritage, classic, tailored or streetwear — and for every fascination you have, “there is a blog for it.”

“With social media and Instagram, men are so much more exposed to fashion and needing to look good and stay in shape,” agrees Todd Magill, design director of menswear brand Jack Spade.

Men's Trends With Mark Anthony

Posted by on

From the runway to a day in the office, to even painting the town red at noteworthy events, in recent times, trendy menswear has given fashion an exclusive facelift.

 

For this men's edition of Flair Magazine, we take a look at mens' fashion through the lens of local designer Mark Anthony.

 

Tailor by design, Anthony proudly carries on the creative tradition from his uncle, who he considered a master tailor. And while he never envisioned himself in fashion, with the extra push from his grandmother, he furthered his training by obtaining certification from the Heart Trust.

Despite the issues of exploitation from the 'powers that be' and disunity among fellow designers, and the challenge of sourcing good-quality fabric locally, Anthony pushed on - with the help of divine intervention, focusing on giving featured fabric not only a voice but also a personality.

"Fabric and its texture play a vital role in executing a well-tailored garment. I always work against the grain, so if it's the norm to see a black shirt with black buttons, then you'll see red buttons on a Mark Anthony shirt," he revealed.

With this unique style of designing in mind, he hopes to establish the Mark Anthony Designs brand on the international market, paving the way for other local designers in Jamaica.

Describing his personal style as clean, well-tailored, fresh, chic and functional, he offers a few tips for men aspiring to keep up with the trend:

Every man should have a well-tailored suit in his closet, preferably a coral or gray suit. Double vent and two buttons are more modern and fashionable.

A pair of black and a brown laced wing-tip shoes with matching belts. A reversible leather belt is a good buy and can be found at Boss Apparel.

A pair of cuff links, handkerchiefs, pocket squares or lapel flower, give you the freedom to add extra style and personal taste to your suit.

Only the top button should be buttoned on a two-button jacket.

Find out your size and wear it. This includes wearing the right size suits, shirts and pants. That's the genesis of a well-dressed man.

Anthony is currently in the process of launching a socks line called 'Fashion Trendy Feet by Mark Anthony'. He explained: "This brand extension features a line of socks suited for men. The idea is to make a bold or subtle statement with your feet. It further extends or accentuates the trouser. Six exciting categories of socks are offered. They are 'The Executive, Designer Dress' series,' Trendy', 'Happy', 'Argyle', 'Classic' and 'Casual'."
