The street scene delivers a grounded view of men’s apparel trends. Mono-colour dressing and statement pieces deliver a strong impact while frayed denim and mismatched styling offers a more relaxed look. Graphics take centre stage in knitwear and also spill across jerseywear in the casual-sports section. Suits are classic and understated with black ranked as the leading colour, exceptions to this are bold-colour jackets and patterned retro styled tailoring

The physical events at London Fashion Week were scaled down and the usual crowds were missing. But this created a strong focus on a group of key influencers and also allowed for a closer scrutiny of each style. It was a unique opportunity, at a time when fashion events are few and far between, for self expression.
Menswear is split between styles that follow a fitted retro/classic line, or contemporary shapes full of volume. Styling moves forward with mixed layering – combining sportswear with tailoring and leather or denim. These casual mixes effectively soften the harder lines of tailoring and refresh sporty styles. Detailing is key throughout, but it’s the unexpected design flourishes that’s pushing this season’s menswear forward.
Unique styling is one of the biggest inspirations this season, and looks that stand out most are those with an individual edge. Sometimes it’s as simple as an unexpected print or colour but it’s the maximal looks that are the most directional. In addition to these maximal looks are bold statement pieces with exaggerated proportions or those with misplaced details, unexpected openings or additional panels. Suits are softened with full wide-leg trousers, a jogger-style cuffed pant or a pair of shorts. Full sportswear looks are out, but some individual pieces added to more formal outfits add an authentic vibe. Leather and leather-look fabrics have exploded onto the scene, not just for biker jackets, but reptile-pattern coats, trousers, skirts, shorts and even softly structured suits.
This gender mix reveals how streetstyle fashion is breaking down barriers with more inclusive ways to style accessories. Over 620 images capture the direction of street trends for autumn/winter 2020. A combination of bold statement pieces, full of personality and more nuanced styles with a softer impact. Personalised styling is key, for example, eyewear with chunky chains or jewellery/watches worn over cuffs or gloves.
One of the overarching style trends is for single-item looks. These consist of a single statement piece, throwing shade on the rest of the outfit and creating a strong focal point – think statement shirts, outerwear and knitwear. Other big ideas to emerge are top-to-toe looks – another purposeful and confident direction. Sportswear is still part of the scene but the impact is softened and merges into other looks. Core casualwear and tailored styles turn to minimal, clean lines in less-heavy shades of stone, concrete, off-white, tan and beige.
Fashion is under scrutiny and as if in response, designers, stylists and consumers are amping up levels of creativity. This has released a flood of creativity on the street. Consumers are customising styles – cropping and restyling their favourite pieces, stylists combine new with old in a hi-low clash, and designers create clever hybrids or adaptable details to extend the use of garments.
Immerse yourself in streetstyle, with over 680 images capturing the latest in women’s and men’s accessories for SS 20. Surprising proportions disrupt the balance and alter perspective. New designs add creative details, a subversive edge – even a touch of humour. Unique shapes add personality and individuality, while design classics and luxury items are used to elevate casual clothing.
Styles might appear familiar and rooted in classic concepts, but today’s menswear is anything but safe. There is a subversive vibe at work, diverting style lines, creating unexpected combinations of colour and pattern and playing with ideas of proportion and styling. Immerse yourself in London’s vibrant menswear scene, where streetstyle trends emerge first.
