Sharp Tailoring

This season, menswear designers are reviving the classic tailored look with sharp, precise shapes. Dolce & Gabbana's suits and vests feature sharp lines, while Giorgio Armani's layered gray ensembles provide new life to this traditional essential.


Referred to as "grandpa-core" across social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter, this style embraces elements such as sweater vests, colored cardigans, belted high-waisted trousers, and loafers, all of which were prevalent on this season's runways. While colored knitwear typically takes center stage in this trend, many designers this season embraced neutrals, layering beiges, browns, and whites to craft comfortable and coordinated ensembles.

Cargo Everything

While cargo pants made a comeback some years ago, the cargo aesthetic continues to dominate the fashion scene. Traditional cargo pants maintain their popularity, but now, cargo skirts and cargo jeans have also emerged, becoming prominent in mainstream fashion. This utilitarian look demonstrated its influence this season, with pockets becoming a focal point, appearing abundantly on jacket fronts and trousers. Designers seized the opportunity to experiment with scale, showcasing oversized pockets on JW Anderson trousers and an array of quilted cargo pockets on S.S. Daley jackets.

Faux Fur

Faux Fur

Designers embraced the cozy trend with diverse styles, showcasing everything from tailored, modern faux fur coats at Gucci to oversized, '70s-inspired pieces by Todd Snyder. While faux fur garments featured a wide range of unique colors, including cool tan, honey brown, classic black, and charcoal gray, one consistent element this season was the prevalence of double-breasted coats across the runways.


Vertical Stripes

Pinstripes, wide awning stripes, and banker stripes were prominent features on the men's Fall/Winter 2024 runways, showcased in various styles ranging from traditional tailored suits by Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana to Gucci's modern patent leather trench coat. While some outfits incorporated stripes for visual appeal, others utilized them to add texture, such as Fendi's shimmery gray top where stripes were intricately etched into the fabric, enhancing the overall depth and dimension of the ensemble.


Polished Leather

It's hardly surprising that the runways were brimming with leather this season, considering the renowned craftsmanship of many participating fashion houses, yet the prevalence of polished leather looks caught many off guard. While some ensembles featured leather with a subtle sheen, others showcased the glossy perfection of patent leather. Across the spectrum of colors, from vibrant reds and yellows to rich greens and classic neutrals, designers unveiled leather garments in diverse shapes and styles. Examples ranged from Gucci's impeccably polished deep yellow leather blazer and trousers to JW Anderson's striking emerald green patent leather mini-trench ensemble.


Dazzling Details

Sequins, metallics, and glitter are not just fleeting trends; they have solidified their presence, as evidenced by the Fall/Winter 2024 runways. From Dolce & Gabbana's opulent embroidered sequins to Fendi's understated glitter-woven suit, designers showcased both extravagant and minimalist styles, proving the enduring allure of these eye-catching details.


Shades of Red 

Named the standout color of last autumn, cherry red dominated the fashion scene, gracing runways, red carpets, and street-style ensembles. This season, the vibrant hue has transitioned into menswear, maintaining its prominent presence. Alongside cherry red, burgundy and similar red tones emerged as popular choices, often crafted in luxurious silks and leathers, adding a touch of allure to menswear collections.

Gender-Fluid Elements: Skirts, Dresses, and Tights

This season, designers such as JW Anderson and S.S. Daley brought innovation to the runways by incorporating skirts, dresses, and sheer stockings into their collections, introducing dynamic ensembles that play with texture, color, and form. Additionally, skorts made a significant appearance, showcased in Pharrell's American West-inspired collection for Louis Vuitton Men and reflecting the "attitude of liberation" envisioned by Silvia Venturini Fendi for Fendi's menswear line.

Layers on Layers

Layers took center stage on this season's runways, with designers embracing the art of layering to add depth, texture, and color to their looks. Brands like Auralee and Louis Vuitton showcased this trend by dressing models in vibrant shirts and jackets layered under long, oversized coats. Intriguing details such as zippers and collars added visual interest, creating dynamic and multi-dimensional outfits.
