Menswear of the future will be defined by its intense connectivity of interdependence with the consciousness of mankind. The captivating news in 2020 is that people around the world learned to live and work together remotely. Yet, despite being united in separation, modern times beckon change. More to the point, 2020 has thrust civilization forward to a new frontier.

The irony of Covid-19 is that as it put the world on pause, it simultaneously stole the energy of the old in the middle of the night and reinvigorated it to the captivating specifications of the modern era.
As menswear embarks on a new journey, a tour-de-force in creativity concord with technology only heightens the winds of change. If any of my readers recall my past written fashion commentary, I predicted this vigorous changing of the guards many many years ago. The writing was on the wall.

In the new menswear (s/s 2021) luxury line-ups, product offerings seemingly demonstrate how techniques have developed —such as sustainable apparel, heroic uniformity as well as traces of history from the past. It is a time of liberty, egalitarianism and brotherhood. More to my point, Big Brother has shown his face and in doing so had redefined menswear fashion through apparel and other fashion items having identification numbers, newness of design silhouettes and rich and modified textures as well as genderless pieces all developed as an expression of continuity and uniformity. The new generation of global luxe menswear is a sacred symbol of extraordinary pieces for an extraordinary turning point in the world.
AMIRI.com -Presenting its collection in Los Angeles for the first time, AMIRI’s Spring-Summer 2021 represents a proud homecoming and tribute to West Coast culture. As the community begins to reconnect, this season encourages a message of comfort inspired by an attitude of wellness and ease that is quintessentially Californian. Overlooking the city, the show is captured at John Lautner’s iconic Sheats-Goldstein Residence in Beverly Hills – a stone’s throw from the brand’s new Rodeo Drive flagship store. An original mix created and performed by legendary LA producer, The Alchemist, floats through the runway. This season, CEO and Creative Director Mike Amiri paints a native’s portrait of the LA spirit: expressive stories riff across an eased silhouette, embracing an attitude of comfort and leisure alongside the house’s rock ‘n’ roll voice. At the heart of the collection, AMIRI’s signature relaxed tailoring is coupled with 70s-inspired sportswear as athletic constructions become the equivalent of a tailored suit. Woolen overcoats wrap around drawstring nylon and lightweight leather sports shorts as louche t-shirts crafted in silk trim offer the formal touch of fine evening wear. Proving that the AMIRI man finds equal comfort in leisure as on the stage, structured blazers contrast with denim and authentic athletic detailing, while collegiate varsity jackets layer over jumpsuits cut at the knees and rendered in rich, soft leather. Drawing codes out of their comfort zones, workwear is treated like tailoring: jumpsuits emerge in deep indigo and white tobacco leather as a nod to LA’s thriving DIY art scene, while dungaree styles accent a relaxed demeanor, crafted in AMIRI’s hallmark denim.

Dolce&Gabbana SS2021 Men’s Collection was presented at the Campus of Humanitas University. Art, design and fashion: the collection is a tribute to the Italian genius manifested at the Parco dei Principi Hotel in Sorrento – designed by Gio Ponti in 1960 – where the colors of the sea mix with the lightness of white. The merge between modernity and neoclassicism becomes the common thread, where geometric and linear designs, referring to the ceramics of the Sixties, are combined with prints of neoclassical statues and busts, in a game of contrasts harmonized by the delicacy of the shades of the sky. Oversized volumes, combination of different materials, overlaps and juxtapositions are the main features of the garments.- Price upon request
