For decades now, the skateboard scene has been having a very strong influence on the latest fashion trends. The skater and fashion communities therefore actually have more in common than people may think. Underlining this fact, trouser label ALBERTO from Mönchengladbach has now joined forces with Germany’s biggest skater community, Rollbrett Union, to put their pant designs through the ultimate endurance test.

That’s the claim of German label Fritzi aus Preußen (Fritzi from Prussia), which uncompromisingly makes its bags from 100 percent naturally recyclable polyurethane and without the use of animal-based ingredients.

Last week, the crème de la crème of menswear got together at the Fortezza da Basso, not only to eye up the new trends, but also display their own sartorial skills. And firm favourites like Givenchy, Salvatore Ferragamo, MSGM and Marco de Vincenzo showcased their creations for spring/summer 2020. Whether hot off the catwalk, or the matching counterpart on the streets, here’s our rundown of the trends awaiting the menswear sector next summer.
Denim meets sportswear – although nothing new, this pairing is always a good idea! Especially when noteworthy brands join forces to create a highly coveted capsule collection. Like in the case of Acne Studios x Starter Black Label.
Black outfits always strike the right balance between sexiness, confidence and attitude – so why switch to bright colours just because the temperatures are rising? With black leading the way, this summer is set to be a real fashion scorcher!
In today’s world, the term ‘talent’ has been watered down through the influence of various television singing and talent competitions and the influence of the world wide web. Anyone who is blessed with a particular skill can show it off on stage in order to experience a moment of success that usually lasts the length of a click or a swipe.
