If you’ve had the chance to peruse Esquire, GQ or Vogue you’ll know that splashes of colour were front and centre on the men’s SS’20 runways. As the fashion show inspiration is beginning to appear in our stores and online, you’ll spot the return of distinct items such as the rugby shirt and 1950’s inspired bowling shirt. But as the clue is in the website title, Bagwhispers, I’m all about the bags; what will the guys be carrying this spring/summer? Continue reading “Men NOT in black! Fashion trends for men for SS’20”
The designers who sent their male models down the runways for the AW19/20 fashion shows had bags carried at every angle. Whilst the styles have their edge, they are high on function, with lots of pockets. Here’s a top 10 list of this season’s bags. And it doesn’t matter if there are corporate days, in a start up or agency or casual weekends, the bag should no longer be an after thought. There’ll be trouser pockets breathing a sigh of relief that they no longer have to be put to the test! And if you have a man in your life who has everything he can want for, this may be your Christmas gift list of inspiration.
Thinking of those spring days and summer nights, there are 3 bags that a man needs to invest in, so that he has every occasion sorted. And no, this list doesn’t include a backpack, as I suspect, most men have one of these (and I’ll share the new designers and styles at a later date). For now, we turn our attention to the 3 bag styles that were spotted on the SS’19 men’s fashion runways. Here’s how to stand out from the crowd, be spontaneous so you can grab a bag and go!
Here in London it’s been all about men’s fashion (LFWM). It’s that time of year to get into the Spring and Summer groove, to be ready for when the New Year sales finish. And whilst GQ and Vogue are reporting the season’s trends in double figures, here’s your bite size guide on what styles to look out for and the bags to match.
Maybe a bold headline but one that takes inspiration from a great performer playing in the background as I type – James Brown. Now he was a man who wasn’t afraid of styling and in my defence, men tend to need a bit of help with their bag styling. If you have a man in your life who needs a new bag, here are the styles and choices that are in demand.
Looking to carry a crafted bag with a clear conscience? Here in the UK we’ve already had 3 years of getting used to bringing our own bag to the supermarket to cut down on plastic – Blue Planet II’s impact is reaching far and wide. And now you might be thinking what else can I do.
When the BBC asks ‘Why is the man bag on the rise?’ it’s my job to highlight the new season’s bag trends for the men who like an accessory to transport their belongings. Autumn/winter 2018’s executive summary of bag trends for men is fairly simple, cross body bags and bags worn over one shoulder; yep just the same as a women’s shoulder bag. But how many men do you know who’ll be rushing to adopt either of these two styles?
It’s only fair the men get a look in when it comes to matching the accessories to the new season’s trends. Whilst the stores are still dragging out their winter sales, Spring is definitely vying for shelf space. For those guys looking to stay trend smart or for those who have a man whose accessories need a refresh (lucky them), here’s your guide to what to keep in hand!
Need a present for a man you know? Should anyone buy a man bag? AA Gill once wrote ‘The problem with a man bag is that it’s called a man bag. “Man bag” is obviously unconscionable’. So let’s drop the namesake and think practically and consider when a bag is required.
