Our Selective Guide to This Month’s Men’s Fashion Shows

Charles Jeffrey Loverboy

In addition to his work in fashion, Mr. Jeffrey is an illustrator, filmmaker and impresario. As a men’s wear designer, he mashes up the over-the-top looks seemingly inspired by the New Romantic bands of the 1980s and more recent club-kid wear. His June 10 show is likely to be buzzed about by fashion critics looking for fashion’s next bad boy.

Wales Bonner

Grace Wales Bonner, the winner of the 2016 LVMH Prize for Young Designers, has a knack for coming up with men’s wear that all genders have been grabbing from outlets like Opening Ceremony. She brings together influences from Europe, Africa and the Caribbean in clean, elegant silhouettes.

At the 92nd edition of this men’s wear trade show, 1,220 labels are scheduled present their wares to an audience organizers predict will number around 30,000 visitors.

Jonathan Anderson has left his usual perch at London Fashion Week Men’s for a runway show in Florence on June 14. At the 2015 British Fashion Awards, Mr. Anderson won the top prizes in the categories of men’s wear and women’s wear. And let it be known that four years before images of the male romper crowded social media feeds, he sent them down the runway.

Francesco Risso, a veteran of Prada, took the reins from Marni’s founder, Consuelo Castiglioni, in 2016 and made his men’s wear debut for the label in January. A critic for The New York Times called it “clever in its zaniness.” He returns on June 17.


Massimo Giorgetti’s side job as the designer for Pucci came to a sudden end in April, and so he has lately been turning his full attention to his label MSGM. Designers on a mission to prove themselves tend to make for runway drama, so look for a statement at the MSGM show on June 18.

Paris, June 21 to June 25
