Offering clean cuts and impeccable silhouettes designed with a hint of sly humour, Maison Kitsuné has grown into a cult fashion favourite for good reason. The French label’s proclivity to experiment and push the boundaries is borne out by Acide Maison Kitsuné, its newly unveiled line of arty, genderless clothing. While still anchored to the brand’s DNA of easy and effortless style, Acide Maison Kitsuné adds a twist with a couple of key design differences.

 

First, each piece is made to be suitable for men and women, which gives your wardrobe double mileage. Second, the brand’s emblematic fox logo has been given a high-voltage upgrade by Australian-born, New York-based illustrator Christina Zimpel, who has added a vivid flash of attitude to the inimitable fellow with acid-bright strokes of colour.

 

Featuring unfussy but totally on-point pieces such as a monochrome polka-dot sweater, an essential white polo-neck and a crisp grey cardigan, Acide Maison Kitsuné presents forward-thinking casualwear that has been taken up a notch.

THE BUSINESS OF STYLE

Today’s working landscape has changed. While anyone over 50 might remember a time before cell phones, when everyone wore a suit and casual Friday’s were the thing of fiction, things are now altogether more flexible. There are fewer rules, and the ones we have are being endlessly bent or completely dismantled (trainers with a tuxedo, anyone?)

 

This new way of working brings with it a raft of dressing challenges. After all, you don’t want to be the guy in a two-piece when everyone else is racing around in jeans and slogan T-shirts. To that end, we’ve pulled together an outfit cheat sheet by a man with the sartorial know-how - Trunk’s Mats Klingberg - for three different types of working man, designed to serve as a reference point for anyone who may need a helping hand.

 

 

THE WORLD TRAVELLER

Men in this camp can work in a number of professions, but the unifying rule is they don’t spend more than a week in the same city. When your work takes you on and off airplanes and in and out of cabs, comfort and versatility in your wardrobe take on a whole new importance. “You should basically be able to reach in to your wardrobe blindfolded and pick out a jacket, a shirt and a pair of trousers and they will match,” says Klingberg. “This will make dressing and packing so much easier and you’ll get more use out of everything.” So, staple knitwear, jackets and lightweight trousers in brown, grey, black are a great start.

 

 

 

THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER

If you’re in London, Berlin or Australia, chances are you know at least 13 people who work in graphic design. Are they in suits? No, we didn’t think so. Still, it’s no excuse to let style slide. Sub-30, you can get away with printed T-shirts and light denim, but head north of that number and you’re better off opting on the smarter side. Think Steve Jobs and you’re on the right track. Klingberg says, “Keep it as simple as possible, so that you can put most of your efforts on living life and getting the job done.” That means a loosely tailored jacket, chinos or slim trousers, block-colour knitwear and brown leather or suede loafers.

 

 


THE C-SUITE EXECUTIVE

The 2018 CEO is as likely to be that nerdy 20-year-old in jeans and an old sweater as he is to be suited and booted. We would suggest, however, opting for a slightly smarter rendition of the look than Mark Zuckerberg. For a modern twist that still means business, mix-and-match your jackets and trousers; alternatively, you can always rely on the classic navy or charcoal wool-mix suit. Klingberg advises, “Have things tailored to fit if needed, and you’ll go a long way. We all come in different shapes and forms, so alterations can make a big difference to how something fits, which in turn can make a big difference to how you look and feel. This is not about being vain; it’s about being smart.” We couldn’t agree more.

NEED TO KNOW: ESSENTIAL MEN’S JACKET

Like days off and glasses of fine single malt, jackets fall into the category of things you can’t have too many of - within reason. After all, they’re incredibly versatile: for every outfit you’ve got, there’s a jacket that would coordinate just perfectly. And they work throughout the year, whether you’re transitioning from outdoors to air-con on a balmy day or dealing with unpredictable weather and changing seasons.

 

With this in mind, there’s always good reason to restock your jacket selection. Here are some essential, timeless styles that every man should own, plus some of-the-moment updates.

 

THE BOMBER JACKET 

Bomber jacket were never designed with style in mind: they were originally just for pilots, after all. But this commitment to functionality is what makes them so timeless. They’re lightweight, protective and masculine.

 

The update Technical fabrics emphasise this piece’s utilitarian roots, and look totally contemporary. Thom Browne and Acne Studios are creating versions that hit the balance between timeless and timely.

 

  

THE DENIM JACKET

Equal parts rugged and relaxed, a good denim jacket is one you’ll wear for years. If you’ve shied away from getting one because you live in your jeans and you’re afraid to double up, use this as a good excuse to get into wearing chinos.

 

The update There’s a strong Americana vibe working its way through menswear at the moment: don’t hold back from going full lumberjack and teaming your denim jacket with a plaid shirt and work boots.

 

 

 

THE LEATHER JACKET

The leather jacket has been cool since before cool was a thing. Sometimes, the original is the best, and in this case it was Marlon Brando in 1953’s The Wild One. All these years later, it’s still hard to beat that look: leather biker, white T-shirt and jeans. Perfect.

 

The update Many designers are focusing on shearling right now, and a cosy collar on your jacket is a great way to wear the look. Check out Stella McCartney’s version.

 

 

 

 

 

THE PUFFER JACKET

It’s a familiar scene: a biting wind outside, stuffy heating inside, a mad rush from one place to the next. This is where the puffer jacket comes into its own. They’re lightweight and compact, and easy to layer over any outfit, smart or casual.

 

The update Canada Goose focuses on functionality; for a more style-centred approach, take a look at the latest pieces with bold contrast panels from the experts at Moncler.

THE NEW SWEATSHIRT

When we talk about casual get-ups, it’s pretty much guaranteed that a sweatshirt is going to feature. They’re a comfortable staple that requires minimal effort, and now they’re also an easy way to bring some colour into your off-duty repertoire.

BRIGHT AND BOLD

If you’re into statement shades, then this one’s for you. Stone IslandAngel Chen and Acne Studios are a trio of labels who know the power of colour and aren’t afraid to use it. Take your lead from them and invest in a sweatshirt that’s made to be noticed.


 

SOFT PASTELS AND NEW NEUTRALS

If full-throttle shades are a step too far, then we recommend starting with something a little softer. Sweatshirts with deeper, darker hues make a quieter statement, while pastel versions bring colour without the fanfare.


 

 

CHOOSE PRINT

Whether you’re heading to Paris fashion week or taking a trip to the grocery store, you’ll have seen slogan-stamped sweatshirts on every pavement. Prints and patterns will bring an unmistakably modern update to your look, so get in on the action with these cool picks from the likes of GCDS and Palm Angels.

With so many brands following the same streetwear trends, it can be difficult to discover menswear designers who are creating something that's truly unique. These four brands are changing the game through their unconventional designs, construction and wearability.


GCDS

Founded in 2015 by brothers Giuliano and Giordano Calza, Italian label GCDS - “God Can’t Destroy Streetwear” - has garnered cult appeal thanks to its oversized silhouettes and bold graphics. A favourite among edgy fashion insiders, GCDS is frequently spotted on A-listers like Teyana Taylor, Joe Jonas, Lil Yachty, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Look no further than the brand’s colourful, eye-grabbing collection to make a statement.

 

GOETZE

Berlin might be known for its all-black sporty club-wear, but GOETZE is redefining the city’s sartorial cool factor. Founded in 2011 by Central Saint Martins graduate Sissi Goetze, the label is taking a fresh new take on classic menswear tailoring through striking patterns, unconventional cuts and minimalist design touchstones. Accessible, versatile and timeless, GOETZE’s subtle twist on men’s staples combines laid-back cool with an urban edge.

 

RTA

Los Angeles label RtA fuses street-tinged basics and high-end design through trend-forward pieces that can be worn casually or formally. Launched in 2013 by Eli Aran and David Rimokh, RtA specialises in lush fabrics and European craftsmanship, but with a pared-back West Coast flair.

 

CHILDREN OF THE DISCORDANCE

Tokyo-based label Children of the Discordance is changing the game when it comes to sustainable fashion. Culling together fabrics from vintage outlets and fair-trade pieces from all over the globe, designer Hideaki Shikama combines his taste for early 2000s hip-hop styles with Japanese pattern-making techniques for clothing that’s both one-of-a-kind and personal.
