All about Menswear

Fashion is about creating your own style, in 2020 just about anything goes. People are not afraid to be bold with their style choices, to mix and match smart with street style.

Menswear has evolved from formal suits that were popular at the beginning of the 20th century to casual tops and bottoms thanks to the innovation in fabrics, manufacturing techniques and globalisation. Inspiration and changes to fashion are usually a sign of the times and over the years and has been influenced by sport, celebrities, war, music, women’s fashion and street culture.

At this moment in time youth culture and street fashion influence designers such as LVMH’s Kim Jones and Virgil Abloh who have in recent times changed the narrative of men’s fashion creating a style that has trickled down to the high street. Virgil is a big fan of oversized fit, everyday wear and added details. Kim is a champion for streetwear and artwork fused into fashion. It is the influence from designers such as Kim and Virgil with their collaborations with streetwear brands that have set the scene for this decades men’s fashion.

Cultureville embraces all types of menswear with clothing for all occasions from hoodies and kaftans to shirts and bow ties. There are timeless pieces that you have the opportunity to experiment with, for instance by going with an item a few sizes bigger you can be into the 80’s oversized trend. 

Blazers are traditionally a formal clothing piece, however now the smart casual is in fashion, when not using blazers for special occasions they can be worn with a simple t-shirt for a laid-back feel.

Due to the relaxed nature of fashion, sports style which includes hoodies and joggers are not just reserved for the gym and are now an acceptable everyday wear look. Fashion has adapted to make these items stylish.
