Tonsure is a relatively new brand, with designer Malte Flagstad launching the brand in 2014 in Copenhagen. With that minimalist Scandinavian touch, Tonsure is has a overcoat or jacket for every man. Whether it’s a puffer, pea coat or plaid jacket, Tonsure’s got you covered for any and every autumn and winter weather situation, whether it be rain, snow, wind or chilly temps.
With garments inspired by 1980s New York, we can’t help but reminisce, with wools, jersey and of course, everyone’s favorite fall fabric, leather. Touches of plaid also walked the runway — after all, it’s not a winter collection without a bit of plaid. Utilitarian backpacks strapped over long jackets and baggy trousers complete the looks, which are practical yet comfortable. The athleisure trend shows no signs of stopping for AW18 as we caught full sweatsuits and windbreakers walking the runway.
Dapper as ever, belted, modern suits covered by fur-lined coats will fit a more classic gentleman, but never losing it’s edgy feel. Touches of patent leather reminded us that athleisure can also be dressy — in fact — these days, athleisure can do pretty much whatever it wants.
Any man would look sharp in Tonsure but especially a city-dweller. Images and city sounds were incorporated into the catwalk, reminding us yet again of a vintage-cool Manhattan. A nostalgic New York gets us every time, and we can’t wait to try out one of Tonsure’s coats. Plus, who doesn’t love a nice pop of orange in the dead of winter?
BDMOTP favorite: a vintage-looking leather and sheepskin bomber jacket in a cool olive green.
