About: Patrick runs an image consultancy designed exclusively for men.
This year and last year, we really saw the rise in looser, unstructured clothing. Men started getting away from more form-fitting clothing and into more flowing and billowy clothing that creates a relaxed silhouette. We’re now in a time where anything goes.
There is no one fit. You can take anything from nearly any era and make it work. This gives a lot of freedom to men looking to experiment with their style. I suspect that long sleeves and longer jackets will be around for the rest of the year and probably into 2019 as well.
Right now there is also a trend in bulkier dad sneakers like the Balenciaga Triple S. In 2019, I think that men will move away from this, still keeping sneakers alive and well, but keeping them more tasteful with less bold coloring. Kim Jones has moved to Dior from his previous role at Louis Vuitton, so I would also look for some more creativity coming out of the house of Dior.
