Rick Owens Takes On Fashion’s Last Taboo: Male Aggression

Surely you’ve seen that meme circulating right now—the one that goes, “Men would rather [do some absurdly difficult task] than go to therapy.” Men would rather start a band, get impeached, become the greatest golfer of all time, spend ten years coming home from the Trojan War…than go to therapy. It’s a gallows-humor twist on a horrifying reality: male aggression, especially white men’s suppressed anger, is at the center of so many of the world’s problems right now.

Men’s fashion, meanwhile, is in a golden period. But designers only glancingly acknowledge that their customer base is in the midst of an identity crisis. Shayne Oliver was maybe the closest to touch on it, with his macho BDSM vibe at Hood By Air, and Demna Gvasalia always hits it in Balenciaga’s biannual fright fests of global domination. But other than these oblique overtures, designers have mostly ignored the monster festering in

Men’s Fashion Trends 2021: 11 Big Menswear Moves to Try Right Now

If you landed here after curiously googling “men’s fashion trends 2021,” we have an admission to make: it’s a weird time to be trend forecasting! Between the plodding pace of the vaccine rollout and the late January chill that’s set in, there still aren’t a whole lot of public forums for getting fits off, which makes it tricky to assess what people are actually wearing right now or what—if any—true-blue trends are forming and blossoming organically. So today, instead of any real era-defining capital-M Menswear Trends, we’re blessing you with an oddball assortment of things we’re really feeling at the moment. New stuff we want to wear, old stuff we’ve been wearing forever, weird stuff that brings us joy. It’s a lot less surefooted and cohesive than the list of men’s fashion trends we gave you last year, which makes sense: this is a much less surefooted and cohesive

Kejuan Clements (15 points, 4-of-5 from 3, 7 rebounds, 4 assists) led Triton along with Ray Grant (14 pts., 9 rebounds), Teonta McKeithen (13 pts.), Morgan Taylor (10 pts., 7 assists, 4 rebounds) and Diang Gatluak (9 pts., 4 rebounds).

An oral history of Kim Jones, fashion’s hardest-working creative director

Is there a fashion designer in the world right now as busy as Kim Jones? Today, the British creative director of Dior Men is presenting his debut womenswear couture collection for Fendi, following in the footsteps of the late Karl Lagerfeld, who held the throne at the Roman house for 54 years. Kim couldn’t be a more perfect heir. Karl, of course, was an unwavering creative juggernaut who effortlessly balanced multiple creative directorships. Kim isn’t afraid of challenges, either. Where others might slow down, or enjoy the comfort of their success, at 41, Kim is ready to step into the unknown, always willing to collaborate and shake up the system. “I feel like he is only just hitting his stride, there’s so much more to come,” says Kate Moss, Kim’s BFF and his first Fendi model.

Kim’s career has been something of a fairy-tale, albeit one filled
