Men’s fashion: today’s leading voices




All too often, the fashion industry takes its cues from the latest collections on the womenswear catwalks of London, New York, Paris and Milan. Menswear, on the other hand, often gets relegated to the back seat, despite the numerous male designers making headway in the industry. Today, we wanted to celebrate some of the key figures bring menswear back into the narrative.
 

Kim Jones


Dior’s menswear artistic director, Hammersmith-born Kim Jones, has been dubbed “one of today’s most quintessentially contemporary designers” by none other than Vogue. A product of the iconic Central St Martins, Jones has shaped the looks of some of the industry’s key brands, working at Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and providing inspiration for John Galliano. Inspired by the icons of London’s clubland, his work pays homage to the gender fluid fashions and experimental styles that the UK capital has gained a reputation for. As we head into a new era of men’s fashion, and tailoring re-enters the scene as a wardrobe staple, Dior Men’s reimagining of the suit with Jones at the helm, is really leading the way.
 

Timothée Chalamet


The ever-elegant, always-tailored Timothée Chalamet is proving that there’s so much more to a simple two-piece suit. Championing the innovative and experimental styles of Haider Ackermann and Alexander McQueen, among others, the actor is top of the list when it comes to the New Romantic revival and a more colourful approach to menswear.
 

Charles Jeffrey


He’s become the biggest new designer at LFWM and his looks on and off the catwalk are nothing if not original. Jeffrey has become known as a fashion chameleon, taking the latest trends and interpreting them in his collections and in his own looks. Embracing London’s famed sub culture and club scene, Charles Jeffrey is bringing an LGBTQ voice back into mainstream fashion.
 

Kanye West


Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Kanye has style. The rapper-turned-designer is a regular on best-dressed lists and he’s been instrumental in bringing hip-hop culture and streetwear into the luxury domain. Another expert curator of brands, Kanye is a pro when it comes to mixing street style brands, like Adidas, with higher end ones, like Versace. What’s more, his infamous Yeezys are a staple for so many.
