LOUIS VUITTON A/W 2020 Review — Virgil Ablohs New Formal Millennial – A Luxury Art Sentiment

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

After reviewing Virgil’s most recent effort with Vuitton on my Youtube I thought I would writ an article about the growth and creativity displayed. Same thing with Samuel Ross I expect these men were angry with everything that was going on and felt pigeon holed into streetwear so decided to divert.

Personally Streetwear is menswear just as tech wear is and all other styles, It is really down to the artists influences. More of that on Current State of Menswear. Virgil seems to take influence from the many years living in America and being shown what a man is on TV and the dominant white culture over there.

What Virgil did was become a renegade of the ideas of old and chopped and screwed them as  Black Culture does in the creative and to make them palatable for men today. What does a current 30 year old suit looks like “same as 100 years ago”… Not anymore What Virgil has done is give power and presence to a new man that is speaking today. As menswear gets bigger it is now time to influence all the faces that have no preconceived notions of what being a Man is.

That level of difference Virgil has in this show is given to us by the many different colour choices in duffle bag or hand pouch or fur hat and coat or very literally a chopped up suit.

Just as Kiko is doing we are getting new shapes and different patterns on display for how we perceive menswear. As I go on about the menswear revolution Everything I think is becoming more to light as they are displayed on the runway Display in texture/ colour/ patterns/ referencing/ layers.

The Suit is the ultimate form of layering from undershirt to shirt to tie, then waistcoat and blazer you may look at it as old hat but that is the very platform that menswear was founded upon and if you take those principles and stretch them over menswear essentials as Virgil did you get a really creative collection and we are going to see more like this where the runway is bound to dictate how men dress in the street much like Womens fashion for the past hundred years.

When I say Menswear revolution this is what I’m talking about never in the life of people who grew up outside the high society in Britain has there been this amount of men understanding quality clothing outside the luxury names and High fashion zeitgeist. Meaning Sam Has the opportunity to be the guy to walk all men down the aisle and be a fixed position in mens outside the view of people without station but work in stations. This is a British man from ends speaking to tandem and it can work which is what I mean by not playing the Prada (High society) game and play the game we know.

Masculine Revolution — Discussion on the Menswear Renaissance

Bless up from your feet to your head-top,

We Go Again.

I started this discussion years ago with anyone who would listen and as a young artist without resources I did all I could to share it, is the inception of the blog. My guiding Principles and Philosophies dictate every fashion article Write from the beginning. There’s not one article on this website that doesn’t have a distinction among my forecast.

I grew to enjoy writing as a hobby and ended up writing over 100 articles in 2019. Here in 2020 as we approach 2022 where the start of the Renaissance will be as clear as day I wanted to document all things that have been happening. from the art Industry of which I love with every fibre of my being,, the men who speak to men and I understand as propagators of the ethos of what masculinity is and represent it well we all have the same mind and way of understanding.

I decided to make a video on the Ethos and will soon make a video of artists representing Masculinity as they see fit in fashion particularly as it becomes the vehicle of what we see as the conversation maker. Each menswear designer is creating something for not the smallest substrata but the wider demographic.

As much I love avant-garde and andro fashion that is part of a substrate and cross-dressing as well as wearing womenswear is part of an even smaller respectable substrate that needs representation equally. Right beside the designers that are speaking to masculinity as it is and grow with it.

What we are seeing in the fashion industry is a Menswear revolution where we are able to represent masculinity in art in ways it wasn’t able before. the foundations being a working man, streetwear, industrial tech wear, and other things laying the first firmament the foundation of masculinity being the principles of utility and simplicity of use, evolving the conversation and design language.

A Cold Wall A/W 2020 Review — Samuels Chic and Precise new Image

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

I have been waiting for this show for quite some time, as he was part of my Spring of the Rookie series now Sam Ross is flourishing at the Highest level. In Milan Fashion week Sam is giving us more High Fashion and Less concept he displays a ready to wear stylish and Chic collection definitely aimed ay a mass demographic, I would compare it to Prada and see the level of commercial success this could garner him .

 

At this point in. time I do believe he has the potential to Out do Prada in quality and creativity, just not at their own game. He must create his own game and epitomise his ideals of Chic suave and quality artistry for menswear. If he does decide to play Prada’s game I do wonder what will happen.

I do believe we will see more from Sam in terms of buyable clothing on the runway who he is speaking to (men) need that image and understanding. Like I said in my What is Couture Video men need to understand what is happening in a fashion show, The Glamour tee and Luxury hoodie only took over menswear because that is what men understand, Sam’s Ideals need to be walked out step by step for the men he is speaking to, to understand them. I do believe that there is a chance for men as a whole to understand where he is coming from.
