Men’s Fall/Winter 2018 Runway Trends that Look Just as Good on Women

START body

With the conclusion of Men’s Fall 2018 shows just last week, and the start of Haute Couture now, not only are the show week lines blurred but so are the offerings. Ladies have always loved to borrow from the boys—Dietrich and that whole Annie Hall look, for example—but these days, men’s fashion is so good that women are having some serious trouser-envy. Not to mention the whole genderless dressing movement—a slew of runways including Prada and Berluti showed men’s looks on women. So, in the spirit of gender equality, here are a few men’s runway looks that look right at home on the other side of the closet.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s men’s collection has been on a roll since Kim Jones took the reins. He brought the house down for his last show with the brand last week in Paris by having friends Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss escort him on his final victory walk. The core print of the collection was based on a photo of the Kenyan terrain Jones shot from a helicopter ride. It adored leggings, shorts, and tops, and was imagined as this fantastic fur parka with “just throw it on and go” appeal.

Christian Dior

Dior’s Kris Van Assche explored the suit and what that means to Atelier Christian Dior this season in a show that pleased all—the 1984 Alphaville hit Forever Young, which played as the event’s soundtrack helped that along surely. Hedi Slimane may have ushered in the skinny suit chez Dior, but Van Assche perfected it this season by recruiting a female tailor from the women’s atelier. The result? This double-breasted suit with a nipped waist that offers, in the words of Hannah Montana, “You get the best of both worlds.” Indeed.

Berluti

Berluti’s majorly expensive, smooth-as-a-baby’s-bottom leathers look great on men but Haider Ackermann demonstrated just how good they also look on women. He showed his clothes on female models, not altered or fitted to their specific physique according to a brand spokesperson. Models including Mica Argañaraz and the iconic Stella Tennant walked his show in the men’s clothes, with the latter exclaiming how much she wanted the green version of the anorak she wore on the catwalk. This classic leather coat would be the piece de resistance of a lady’s outerwear closet.

Fendi

The fur flies at Fendi. The house is known for its highly innovative techniques that treat the skins almost like fabrics with dyeing and pattern processes. This season was no exception as several fur toppers graced the runway. Who wouldn’t love this cozy sporty hoodie? Throw it on over your gym clothes to give traditional streetwear a run for its money.

Prada

Prada returned to its roots by fashioning several garments out of the industrial nylon that re-launched the sleepy Italian travel goods brand back in 1984—when daughter Miuccia Prada took over the house. We’re happy to leave those looks to the fellas because this photo-print coat is seriously chic for cerebral fashion fans.

Maison Margiela

Since taking up residency at Maison Margiela, John Galliano has focused on women’s ready-to-wear and the house’s couture collection, Margiela Artisanal. That changed for Fall 2018, when he showed a proper men’s collection for the first time for the house, combining his lauded bias-cut draping with traditional men’s tailoring. The result? Fantastic pieces such as this Yves Klein blue double-breasted suit (reminiscent of those ‘90s Jean Paul Gaultier double-breasted suits popularized by Madonna) that would look just as good on the female form.

Dries Van Noten

Quite often, men’s shows, which happen a whole month a head of the women’s calendar, are a good indicator of what’s to come. If this is true then watch out ladies, there will be some seriously I gotta have it clothing at Dries Van Noten come March. The designer created prints similar to those marbled paper prints that looked amazing on a series of outerwear or this cool shirt that would be great a bit oversized and paired with a skirt.

Valentino

Gucci isn’t the only Italian house to rock a tiger. Apparently, the Valentino archives are also ripe with them. The motif was splayed across this wool overcoat adding a bit of beastly delight to an otherwise tame style perfect for any gender.
