Best looks from Dunhill's autumn winter 2019 show
As we come to the end of men’s fashion weeks, the main talking point for all was the demise of the streetwear trend and the return to elegance and Esquire-loving tailoring. This could not be more evident than at Mark Weston’s AW19 collection at Dunhill.
Just like we saw in the 1990s where the first five years saw designers such as Maharishi with their embroidery and camo-heavy design aesthetics flourish only to be outdone by fashion’s fickle necessity to change and the rise of the sartorial, workwear, and minimalist trends of the late 1990s/early 2000’s with brands like Helmut Lang and Calvin Klein.
On the final day of Paris Fashion Week, with an overabundance of actors, musicians and influencers on display, Dunhill showcased its AW19 men’s collection which did not disappoint.
With the man of the moment and in-demand actor Rami Malek on the front row looking suave and sophisticated, the stage was set for an elegant affair. There was a mixture of sumptuous textures and loose tailoring to make us at Esquire feel extremely happy.
The designer Mark Weston seemed to play with a couple of British clothing cultures as well, namely Sloane Rangers and terrace wear to great effect. Commenting on the show, the Creative Director explained that this season he wanted “that rediscovery of sophistication, of having the confidence for quietness and discretion” but at the same time, still having the “idea of playing with the parameters of taste and recontextualisation of menswear cultures”, something that is inherently very British.
