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.

How do you make high-end fur look grunge and pop? Jesus Lorenzo did a creative and retrospective job updating his fur and leather looks to represent a 90’s generation for AW16/17. Whereas there were very few menswear looks, what there was not only had a cool retro vibe but also took in the trends that are stylish right now for next fall and winter.

Of course, the longer coats with the fur collars and touches here and there of fur detailing were the focal point for me. In fact, on all the runways in the world this seems to be the focal point for men in AW16/17–and what better to do so that a fur designer! Of course, the all-fur short jacket, though slightly feminine in look, was super cool, and if paired with masculine separates, would be perfect.

Jesus Lorenzo uses only the best the of best when it comes to his fabrics. Luxurious, soft Chinchilla and Fox fur and smooth, supple leather make up the menswear looks in the collection.

Exteberria created a warm and cosy AW16/17. The catwalk started off with gentlemen “sleeping” among the trees…perfect timing for the Spanish release of the Revenant into theatres…would this be a similar experience? The truth is, no. Once the waltz music started playing, I had visions of travelers resting in a Bavarian forest, waiting for dawn to come, comforted in their giant fur coats. Not warriors, but simply men–men in big, furry, wonderful coats. As the first two models waltzed down the catwalk, I knew this line was all about comfort and ease.

The collection featured garments (well–outerwear) for both women and men, and most of the looks incorporated some sembalance of fur, in fact, loads of heavy, heavy fur, perfect for Nordic, Mongolian or Canadian winters. Leather was also used prominently in many of the designs as well as tweed. Colorblocking and even pattern blocking were also repeatedly used, and of course, right on trend with the New York, Milan and London runways for AW16/17, long, long coats with fur or shearling collars were out in full force.

Each model sported warm wool socks with leather and patched detailing to accompany the coats–not a single shoe or boat was present in the collection. The focus was definitely all on those fluffy, stylish coats. All eyes on the coats!

Any man that wants to be well-outfitted for a very chilly winter should derfinitely pìck up some Exteberria outerwear.

Francis Montesinos created a very special collection this season at MBFW Madrid. The line, called Fashion Reliquary, is an ode to Spanish fashion designers and the country of Spain itself. With tributes to well-known Spanish fashion designers like Elio Berhanyer (who, at 86, assisted the show and of course was seated in the front row) and the late Jesus del Pozo, the garments were all inspired and created with these fashion gods in mind.

Creating garments that pay homage to 6-7 different fashion designers isn’t an easy task, and it probably wasn’t the most uniform collections Montesinos has ever done, but it still worked. The few menswear looks consisted of mixing and matching textures. Knitted wool sweaters with velvet pants, leather shorts with cotton tops and sheer material underneath suits. Sporty sweatpants were also paired with more tailored tops, and some very interesting medieval and disco patterns were used for a little flamboyance.

You never know what Montesinos is going to bring to the table, and this season he brought quite a different outlook on fashion. A tribute collection will always be remembered, that’s for sure.
