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.

Custo BCN is known for wacky patterns, bright colors and patchwork designs. The AW17/18 collection was no different. Menswear looks were shiny and bold, with metallics being the main focus on the line. Shimmery pants paired with shimmery coats covered with glittery furs were looks that both men and women sported.

All combined, these looks may be a bit much for the average gentleman, the trick with Custo is to take key pieces and combine them with basics. For example, this gold coat would be a great look layered over an all-black outfit.

Or this white could work nicely over any outfit really. The purple glittery bomber jacket could be paired with dark denim or some Y-3 track pants for a casual look.

With Custo, it’s all about finding those key pieces to make a look fit together perfectly.

A tribute to the Black Panthers and Martin Luther King, the Ana Locking AW17/18 collection The Dreamers proved to be a powerful political statement as well as a fashion-forward one. With all models (both male and female) sporting the original black panther-style beret hats, the collection was strong and confident.

While BDMOTP doesn’t normally love men in big furs and leopard print, something about this line just…worked. Any man would adore those drawstring, comfortable pants or the one of the oversized blazers layered over a turtleneck on a chilly winter day. The patterned bomber jackets and printed suit, while slightly outlandish, could be fun for a real statement piece or outfit. And of course, the berets or Dreamer t-shirts could easily be combined with a number of pieces.

Not unusual for AW17/18, Moises Nieto showed a brief flash of menswear including layered, colorblocked separates. Casual and cool, the looks weren’t quite urban streetwear, but definitely weren’t elegant either–which is what we liked: something just a little bit different.

Long, lightweight trenches with cuffed trousers and bright scarves marked most of the menswear.

Pops of bold orange bomber-style windbreaker jackets layered over patterned tops were fun too.

As menswear is relatively new for Moises Nieto, we look forward to seeing what he’ll bring to the table next season.

A tame, preppier side of Roberto Verino came out for AW17/18 at MBFW Madrid. Staunch suit jackets and ascot-style silk neck scarves graced the models of the off-runway catwalk. Suits in black, navy and white were fairly basic except for the “RV” logo sewn into them, a tribute to a dapper Ralph Lauren, perhaps?

Although the Spanish market has slightly recovered from the hit of the economic crisis some years back, fashion has still taken a toll. Perhaps a return to the basics are what Spain is looking for at the moment?

Only time will tell, but men, if you need something to wear to work, pick up a classical RV suit.

Francis Montesinos takes things to another level for AW17/18 as per usual. The show starting off with bagpipes and a set based on Adam and Eve, elf-styled models walked the runway to Peter Pan music, decked out in green, colorful woodsy green outfits and floral patterns.

The men sported Robin-Hood esque furs, sheepskins and feathers, grandpa-esque knitwear in bold colors like purple and bright green and the occasional pop of white when needed. Wearable? Not sure, but certainly fun.

Devota y Lomba brings it back to the classics with a huge presence of menswear f0r  AW17/18–and not just for men. Both women and men sported tweed capes and baggy, belted suits and an all-over masculine vibe.

The belt was a big feature this season, hooking together voluminous layers under suit jackets and snazzy dress pants. Jackets layered over untucked shirts,long vests and colorblocked blazers also took the collection from a typical Savile Row dapper style to an edgy new level.

Tweed and wool offer winter warmth and bowties paired with the baggy trousers offer a juxtaposed tailored, yet untailored look that we at BDMOTP absolutely love. Plus, we loved the layered blazer upon blazer and white cuffs.

Ana Locking presented a collection with just a few menswear looks for SS17 entitled The Thinker. Locking describes the collection as being “chaotic and reconstructed” and it really seems as the garments are just that. Belted layers and torn trousers give the line a street feel, but things still seem tailored, perhaps thanks to the structured blazers, chunky oxfords and round sunglasses.

BDMOTP loved the way Locking incorporated clashing military chic into the collection, even in the form of very short shorts. Locking inspires men to be cool, calm and edgy, so if that’s your vibe, consider picking up a piece from The Thinker collection.

Montesinos is always a costumed whirlwind, and the SS17 collection was just that. Inspired by Montesinos’ homeland, Valencia, Spain, he created a collection of mostly womenswear but a select few menswear pieces: bright, patterned and bold.

A few of the men walked the runway arm-in-arm with a female model, sporting unique, loud vests and even skirts.

It seems that as the seasons go on, men in skirts is still happening (unsure if this is to our joy or dismay–but hey–if you feel confident, go for it).

Once piece BDMOTP can definitely get behind is the vertical striped suit with patterned tee underneath, of course, with a “clashing” pocket square.

We do love this striped number.

As always, Montesinos designs a unique bride & groom set, and this seasons was Alice in Wonderland-esque, with a top hat, gold pants and shagadellic top coat patterns.

Quite the groom.

The Larenza SS17 Mexico-themed collection was showcased at the BONAVERIMILANO showroom, a simple, grey space with high ceilings and plenty of light. This small and curated collection was focused on the Mexican luchador and the bright colors really jumped out against the crisp metals and woods of the showroom.

The Luchador collection was inspired by masked Mexican fighters, and the vibrant colors, masks and stripes all represent the liveliness and boldness of these fighters. The collection, contained to mainly knitwear, would be something fun and casual to pair with denim or khaki for a chill weekend outfit.
