Gender changes question what is traditionally considered masculine and feminine.
Written by Marques Harper
What seemed evident, at least in the photos of the men's spring / summer 2020 collections shown in Paris and in the Italian cities of Florence and Milan recently, is that designers and brands have taken a great excuse to redefine the male wardrobe.
And, for the record, everything is fine. (After all, in this genre-genre world, who sets the rules on who should wear a dress or pink or carry a handbag?)
The big take-away on the catwalks and the reaction on social media seems to be that exploring one's identity is the way to live in 2020.
Discover the heavy mix of bold colors and prints by Valentino and Louis Vuitton; head-to-head gender bending looks at Thom Browne, Loewe and others; and numerous labels "wear men's clothes, including Versace, Berluti and Emporio Armani, just to name a few.
As you will see later, these collections of catwalks are able to address a long complaint that men's clothing is boring. (Yes, color matters!)
And they also seem to be exploring the cultural changes that are happening now globally, as ordinary people – not just celebrities – define themselves in their own way, particularly when it comes to topics like sexuality and gender.
And with that, here are the six main trends in men's fashion that could end up redesigning your 2020 wardrobe – and you in the process.
Gender bending rounds
The men's looks of the Louis Vuitton, Comme des Garcon, Loewe and Thom Browne 2020 spring / summer collections – together with many other designers and brands – have challenged what are traditionally considered to be male and female shapes and styles.
Bold colors and strong prints
Colors and prints screamed loudly in Versace, Valentino, Dries Van Noten and Palm Angels men's spring / summer 2020 collections and others on recent European catwalks.
The power to stay thin could be over. Consider some of the upcoming spring and summer offers from Emporio Armani, Celine, Vetements and Arthur Avellano as proof.
Signed bags and carrying cases
On the basis of the catwalks, it seems that the boys will flock to the most daring designer bags or elegant transport cases as status symbols next spring. Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, the collaboration of Dior X Rimowa and Fendi offered a new selection for 2020.
Dresses on the first European catwalks, especially with the double-breasted style, had a great time. Have a look at the spring / summer 2020 selections of Emporio Armani, Versace, Berluti and Dries Van Noten.
Take into consideration the use of rose pops, which were also part of the new spring / summer 2020 offers of 1017 ALYX 9SM, Louis Vuitton, Paul Smith and Ermenegildo Zegna.
