OUR MET GALA FASHION PREDICTION FOR MEN

Every year at the Met Gala we’ve seen the trains on women’s gowns get longer and more elaborate as female celebrities walk up that long staircase- almost to the point of being ridiculous. Men’s clothing designers have been watching and urging the bolder men they design for to become more open-minded and consider trains for their own attire. This year ASAP Rocky wore a plaid kilt skirt with a long appendage in the back and P Diddy wore a long and abundant cape that dragged behind. Rappers seem to have the audacity to pull off wearing a garment with a train first (weren’t they first to wear pearl necklaces?) and we predict at least one rapper will have a train next year!

NO SURPRISE: EMILY RATAJKOWSKI LIKES UGLY MEN

Model Emily Ratajkowski’s devotion to her husband of four years, producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, 41, was always a bit of a mystery because she seemed to be way out of his league. But when she accused him of cheating and other unsavory activities, she was quick to file for divorce. So we HAD to laugh when she posted on TikTok a line obviously referring to her estranged husband: “When he thinks he’s a 10 because he pulled you, but you like ugly men.”

MILAN ACCESSORIES FOR MEN: FACEMASKS AND PLASTIC GLOVES

Milan designer Phillip Plein has decided that men will be wearing their possessions such as credit cards, cash etc across their bodies on a chain. And it’s not a bad idea to stash some rubber gloves and a face mask in those little boxes. Milan is under siege from coronavirus which has exploded in a nearby small town. Models and fashionistas are rushing to catch flights OUT of the city before worse things begin to happen…

CAN MENSWEAR IN PARIS TOP MILAN FOR SHOCK VALUE?

Looks like designers showing at Men’s Fashion Week Fall Winter 2020 in Paris are definitely trying to out-do Milan designers when it comes to shock value. Loewe’s clothing for guys is usually pretty wearable, but this outfit – which comes in several colors- is NOT for everybody. Only the boldest–or craziest guys will order this little number, but it IS fun to look at. Come to think of it, we can picture ONE celebrity wearing this…

ITALIAN MENSWEAR IS SUDDENLY A LOT MORE PLAYFUL

Some fashion shows are impossible to resist. Milan is presenting their menswear collections and the competition to be most original and edgy is at an all-time HIGH. Here’s an example of Magliano’s fall and winter 2020 collection for men! The not-so-typical model is wearing a framed painting on a chain around his neck and gloves attached to his belt. Note the strange waistline on the pants. Fun to look at.. It seems Milan is trying to catch up to Japanese fashion…

IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT YOUR MAN TO LOOK LIKE?

Dolce & Gabbana is showing their 2020 fall collection for men in Milan and they call this STREET SYLE! Couture designers are struggling to introduce more designer day wear for guys – inspired by the popularity of hip hop fashion and active wear. Let’s face it, fashion houses are making more money now with designer sneakers than with red carpet gowns. THIS silky ensemble is immediately recognizable as D&G, but looks more like something Hugh Hefner would have worn, than Travis Scott. STREET WEAR? We think not.

NEW FAD IN L.A: HIGH HEELS FOR MEN

Brace yourself. Those insanely high heels that make women feel powerful are starting to look good to men. Young men, anyway. In LA, fads like this start in gay clubs and may or may not go mainstream. Singers like Adam Lambert are likely to jump on the high heel bandwagon first. In the 70’s, rock stars like Mick Jagger and Rod Stewart didn’t hesitate to wear women’s clothes with platform shoes, but rockers today are more macho so it remains to be seen if Kanye West will experiment with heels.
