There’s an incomparable buzz that comes with watching the latest runway shows and setting eyes on new pieces by our favorite brands and designers for the first time. But what we often forget in the joyful haze of Fashion Week is the painful wait that follows for the must-cop pieces we’ve just seen.
In London, Paris, and Milan earlier this year, we were treated to a truly diverse range of collections and themes. From ultra-chunky shoes and sneakers to tone on tone ‘fits and out-there knits, shows for the upcoming season had so much to offer. With a to-buy list longer than a European winter, we began the wait for the items that grabbed our attention back in January and February. And at last, that wait is over. With Fall/Winter collections hitting stores and dropping online, we’ve picked out a selection of garments that are available to shop right now.
While we could rant about our favorite FW19 Fashion Week moments for days, we’ve picked out five highlight collections that really turned our heads a few months back. Prada took us on a gothic getaway with its Frankenstein-inspired pieces. Marni unveiled an alternative take on suiting, not to mention some wild wool pieces. And everyone’s Fashion Week favorite Jacquemus injected some playful youth into the Paris proceedings, with those modeling the collection rocking up to the Palais de Tokyo in a truck. The entrance impressed as much as the clothes and accessories on display, which you can browse below.
So enough from us, we know you’ve been waiting a while to get copping. Scroll on, and shop our picks of the FW19 runway below.
Inspired by the uniform of French farmers and traditional workers, Simon Porte Jacquemus’ second menswear collection reflected the designer’s childhood years in the rural countryside of southern France. The workwear-heavy line tells the story of his influence through pieces like this earth-tone jacket and twill trousers. Hard to miss highlights, though, were the bright crossbody bags and matching accessories, accentuating the more minimal tone of the label’s wider collection.
1017 ALYX 9SM
In the 1017 ALYX 9SM FW19 show, Matthew Williams was at it again with the technical clothing. Camouflage vests and pants lined up against tactical chest rigs, only to be finished off with drip-heavy accessories such as the gold bracelet below. Before the show in Paris, the brand opened up a pop-up store, where customers could get their hands on Williams’ collaboration pieces, including Nike Training performance gear and Dior accessories. But the brand’s runway show was where the designer really came into his own. The all-new formal upper shoes with hefty removable soles were definite highlights.
