The spring-summer 2024 men’s shows ended in Paris on the evening of June 25, after expressing their vision in Milan. From big houses like Dior, Prada or Louis Vuitton to more niche brands like Rick Owens or Sacai, what does next summer’s men’s wardrobe have in store for us? Small summary of strong trends spotted on the catwalks.
The high-waisted pants
Classic of the men’s wardrobe, the pants are displayed this season worn very high on the waist. At Loewe, it comes in a denim effect punctuated with shiny sequins; it is in light canvas and narrow on the leg at Officine Générale, or even cut in black leather with leg warmer effect at Rick Owens.
shades of blue
Strong, solid colors have stood out this season. Between pink and ultraviolet, shades of blue carve out a special place. Baby blue on a biker-style jacket from Givenchy, azure blue on a long loose coat studded with flowers at Valentino or even pastel blue on a set of supple suits and straight coats by Kenzo.
The assumed sensitivity
The new man is no longer afraid to assume his emotions and his sensitive part. At Dolce & Gabbana, this involves transparent pieces in black tulle or lace; at Dior, sensitivity is expressed through pink affixed to a pullover featuring canework, the house’s flagship motif, and we find very beautiful blouses with delicate floral prints on the Prada catwalk.
Discreet or worn majestically, jewelry has entered the men’s wardrobe this season. At Hermès, silver chains are superimposed around the neck; at Sacai, the pearl necklace is worn over clothing, while Etro plays the return from the beach with shell necklaces. Note that Ludovic de Saint Sernin signs this season a collaboration with the Vagujhelyi brand, which imagines majestic jewels to wear around the hands.
The extra large
Is the reign of ultra-close to the body coming to an end? This season, clothes are worn wide, even extra-wide, to leave room for body movements. At Yohji Yamamoto, it’s a layering of flexible pieces, including very loose pants that give this impression of breadth. At Dries Van Noten, the suit cut in a thick woolen fabric also takes off, while a jacket and trouser set from Louis Vuitton seems to float.
