A Mini Pant With A Handbag – Menswear SS19 Trends

Get rid of them coats and jackets; the sun’s here to stay from now till early Oct and you have your ready-to-wear, ready. Spring/Summer 2019 may be the most stylist gender-fluid season that we’ve had. This ultimate SS19 guide will show you how to dress the male physique.

Short Shorts

Luke Day – Fashion Director from GQ has been longing for the reappearance of ultra-short shorts – SS19 is the time to be rocking this trend. Seen on the catwalk this season were the ‘tiny bum-skimmers‘, especially at Prada‘s collection. Louis Vuitton made an appearance with tie dye leather, not to mention Dries Van Noten‘s swirly-whirly retro prints. The best thing to do now is invest in some.

Sage With Colour 

There are several colour trends, but sage was easily the most wearable one this season. Sage is the shade of SS19. A beautiful Canali two-piece and a smashing Corneliani‘s mac is the perfect embodiment of this.

Hiking Sandals 

I mean there wasn’t a show in 2018/2019 that didn’t feature a pair of sandals in one iteration or another. SS19 featured nylon-webbed strap styles at Fendi, and heavy-duty hikers at MSGM.


You have to admit the handbag is a man’s delight. A woman can’t be carrying everything these days! – LOL. It isn’t a manbag or a murse, not even a pocket. SS19 is 100% the season of the handbag. At Dior, Kim Jones reinterpreted the classic saddle bag (originally designed by John Galliano), into a series of shoulder and cross-body bags. However, the trend was more literal at Prada and Valentino.

Unexpected Shirting

For a while now a billowing bengal-striped shirt has been worn in a casual way. In SS19 however, it’s really all about the weird and wonderful with an edge of high fashion. Alexander McQueen is where you’ll find the best; long sleeves and cuffs were left flapping in a chic way under the arms of the suits. 

All Things Snakeskin

We have tiger print, but for the more summer appropriate – python-skin shirts and co-ords slithered in – one of the surprising micro-trends from the SS19 shows.
