Juanjo Oliva launched his very first ever menswear line for AW17/18 at MBFW Madrid. The collection, which was varied and ample, showed an eclectic mix of casual sportwear, leisurewear outerwear and suits.
Outerwear came in the form of long trenches and even cape-style coats for men, piggybacking on the cape-trend for women that seems to be back season after season. An interesting windbreaker rain poncho cape was something we haven’t seen before, and there was also a very 80s-style boxy cropped jacket paired with matching pants. Perhaps a modern day take on the suit? A mid-length leather orange coat with a scrunch waist was also something new and bright for fall.
Cropped pants, hoodies and bomber jackets walked the runways and we loved the pops of gold Oliva set throughout the show, especially the gold suit and trench.
