This year’s spring/summer 2024 men’s fashion week is set to be one for the history books. Seven years ago—when the men’s arm of women’s ready-to-wear shows were still steeped in relative obscurity—we might not be making that kind of statement. But in 2023, it’s far from an exaggeration. This season, Pharrell Williams will make his big debut as the new creative director for Louis Vuitton menswear; Fendi, meanwhile, is headlining at the Pitti Uomo trade show in Florence. Ludovic de Saint Sernin will close out Paris Men’s Fashion Week just a month shy of it being announced that he was leaving Ann Demeulemeester following a single short season at the helm of the house. Presentations from Loewe, Hermès, Wales Bonner, and Valentino will take place across London, Florence, Milan, and Paris this month—and on June 12, Saint Laurent kicked things off with a special show in Berlin.

Many celebrities continued the awards season fashion trend;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “awards season fashion trend of bringing a modern twist to classic men’s suits, such as wearing traditional tuxedos in bold colors or swapping fitted suits for more casual silhouettes.
This was seen on actor Seth Rogen, who has become known for his bold, casual-meets-high-fashion style. Rogen attended the Oscars in a Brioni white tuxedo jacket paired with dark gray trousers and a matching bow tie.
Come for the spectacle, stay for the clothes. That’s the best way to think about Anthony Vaccarello’s tour de force spring 2023 menswear show. He wisely knew when to turn things up to high drama level—and when to turn them way down so that what he showed, his best men’s collection yet, felt intimate and real and strong. Of course, the setting helped. Vaccarello had decamped to the Agafay desert, an hour or so out of Marrakech. It’s a city with real significance to Yves Saint Laurent the man (he had two homes here, most famously Villa Oasis, nestling beside the Majorelle Garden) and the brand (Marrakech is the location of the Musée Yves Saint Laurent). And then factor in the show’s mise en scène: an epic and haunting circular light show installation designed by artist and set designer Es Devlin, which rose up from a mirage pond, and was

Speaking after the group disclosed that net profit rose 34 percent in the first half versus the same period last year, group managing director Jean-François Palus said Kering was encouraged by the success of its eyewear division, launched in 2015, for which it is targeting revenues of 2 billion euros in the medium-term.

Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé first traveled to Marrakesh in 1966 and were met by an entire week of rain. But the day the sun came out, the couple fell head over heels in love with the city, immediately bought a house there and returned regularly over the years with their friends. Morocco became their home away from home and a creative sanctuary for Saint Laurent, the country where he would sketch designs for his upcoming collections before bringing them back to his studio in Paris. Stephan Janson, French fashion designer and friend of Saint Laurent and Bergé, speaks about how Marrakesh opened the trailblazing 20th-century couturier’s eyes to color and the “Love” exhibition running until October 30, 2022, which he co-curated at Palácio Duques de Cadaval in Évora, Portugal, alongside Mouna Mekouar and Alexandra de Cadaval.
