The world of men's fashion is constantly evolving, and SS23 is no exception. While some familiar themes make a comeback this season, they have been revitalized and adapted for both the runway and everyday wear. Nostalgic silhouettes and moody layers take center stage alongside savannah-inspired hues and statement pieces. The SS23 collections boast a dynamic selection of trends that will inspire you to refresh your wardrobe for the season ahead.
The Y2K trend has undoubtedly been a major inspiration for mainstream fashion in the past year, and the good news is that it's here to stay. So hold onto your bedazzled tops and trucker caps and embrace the kitschy garments and over-the-top accessories that define this era. To get the look, choose a statement piece to uplift your outfit, like the Diesel 1DR-Pod bag, or GmbH Patchwork Vinyl Trousers, and more from others like MM6 Maison Margiela, Who Decides War, and Fucking Awesome.
BLACK TO BERGHAIN
Black is a timeless staple in fashion and in SS23, the runways showcased an updated and more sophisticated take on the gothic look often associated with the Berlin club scene. Monochromatic looks took center stage, styled with layers and a variety of textures that are anything but dull. Moody jackets, mesh pieces, and leather detailing added depth and character to these ensembles. Create refined and tonal looks that will guarantee you entry into the infamous rave destination with pieces from coveted brands like Rick Owens DRKSHDW, 1017 ALYX 9SM, Heliot Emil and more. To amplify the effect of the aesthetic, accessories or footwear such as the Mastermind WORLD Tape Belt or Rick Owens Low Sneakers are sure to do the job.
MORE THAN CHILD’S PLAY
This season, brands are delving into the theme of youth and nostalgia, taking inspiration from playful apparel and accessories in vibrant palettes and whimsical patterns that evoke childhood memories. Designers are unleashing their imagination and nostalgia, infusing a range of silhouettes like the Icecream Anniversary Jacket, KidSuper Kissing Bag, and more with prints and designs that harken back to the past.

The classic skateboarder aesthetic is making a comeback on the runways, exemplified by JW Anderson's show featuring a look adorned with an actual broken skateboard.

Moving away from its traditional vintage aesthetic, SS23 workwear takes a fresh spin by incorporating new design elements that are impossible to overlook. Beyond the classic worker jackets, carpenter jackets and chinos, you'll discover embroidery, innovative tailoring, bold colors and unconventional fabrics that elevate these pieces, as seen on the Fried Rice Workman Jacket as well as many others. From renowned brands like KENZO, Carhartt WIP, Burberry, Loewe, Prada and more, witness workwear reimagined in unexpected ways that challenge stereotypes.
