Men’s Fashion Week favourites, as voted by Team Face

Because we’re so good to you, here are our top picks from the Men’s AW20 shows, featuring Martine Rose, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Dior and more.

Innumerable shows, countless looks and a whole lot of schmoozin’. With so much to focus on, moments to capture and – of course – #content to consider, fashion week (or month, or year?) can make your head feel a bit done-in once the lights go out. But we’ve re-focused and rounded up our top picks from the London, Milan and Paris Men’s shows, providing you with a tidy run-down of some of the very best runway bits that you might well be wearing next autumn and winter. Don’t say we don’t treat you.

COLOUR CLASH

Berluti was the brightest show of all, assaulting the eyes with its wild shades and even wilder combos across the suits, rollnecks and oversized overcoats. How I want to do formal for AW20

SLOGAN TOPS

Unleash your inner narcissist with Martine Rose’s Expect Perfection” long-sleeve top. Wear with a diamond stud on your tooth, for extra gleam.

FUTURISTIC MUFFS

Who didn’t love Raf Simons’ (faux) fur-lined slogan hand warmers? I loved the contrast in the collection: space-age explorer on a solar mission vs suited secret agent ready to storm Area 51.

RAF’S RUNNERS

I’m obsessed with the RAF SIMONS (RUNNER) line, especially the black boot. The whole collection was major – very hopeful and optimistic and future-facing – but it’s these babies that stayed with me. Killer boots, man.

CORDUROY MADE COOL

Mrs Prada took a hardy farmer and an upholstered-armchair-loving English lit academic, smooshed them together and created a low-key look to die for. Boxy, big-lapelled cord jacket, buffed-up boots and a cosy cardie were all delivered with Prada levels of perfection.

KING-SIZED SHOES

Rick Owens is the king of stompy king-sized boots. I love all of his platforms, but the opening pair – iridescent silver with a steel toe-cap and a clear perspex heel – stole the show.

THE IT BAG

Stefan Cooke’s The End” bag is one to carry next to those men screaming the end is nigh” down Oxford St. Very fun.

PLAYFUL JUMPERS

The knitwear at Dior’s AW20 men’s show was skilful and playful. I always want something from every collection.

Andrew Davis, Creative Consultant

CRAIG’S COLOURS

I’d never been tempted by a tunic til Craig Green sent down an electric cornflower blue beauty on true beauty Malick Bodi. Not sure it’ll look quite so good on me, but let’s see in September!

TRACKY TOPS

Wales Bonner’s adidas 3‑stripe zip track top is sporty with a slick 70s feel. Reminds me of the ones my dad wore back in the olden days in grainy sepia pics – when he had a questionable perm.

MODERN BLACKADDER

Jordan Luca’s show was modern contemporary men’s with a nod to Blackadder, Antón shoes by Grenson and Stephen Jones hats. Triple threat.

Andrew Davis, Creative Consultant 

TAKE ME TO 1997 

Late 90s vibes permeated Jacquemus’s soft-hued collection. This gentle yellow, boxy, cropped, pirate‑y waistcoat feels like the thing you’d have worn as a kid to a posh family party. Rave-volume cargo pants, cut-out shirt sleeves and a water bottle holster completed the lewk.
