Ushering in a Return to Tailoring with an Editorial by Photographer Cam Hicks and Stylist Matthew Henson
After years of graphic tees, hoodies, and XL silhouettes dominating the menswear market, it was a welcome change of pace to see a new proposal emerge in the FW19 collections—let’s call it future suiting. Think Kim Jones at Dior, suits worn shirtless. At Celine, Hedi Slimane pumped up his signature tailoring-first aesthetic. Dries gave us the ultimate psychedelic-sleek suiting wardrobe, as always. And then there was Stefano Pilati’s Random Identities scene-stealing baby blue blazer. Ditching the sweatpants, this season is all about embracing a no rules approach to dressing up. Creepers replace dress shoes, while relaxed shirting, loud prints, and utilitarian accents indicate that the old tenants of #menswear are long gone. To celebrate this shift, photographer Cam Hicks and stylist Matthew Henson played around with some of the season's best new suits. No tie required.
