As we get ready to head into the Summer months, Men’s Life DC would be remiss if we didn’t look back on one of our favorite collections for A/W 2018: Joseph Abboud. If you like gray, then you are going to be all in for this collection. We declare the Joseph Abboud A/W 2018 collection a winner!
Since Joseph Abboud kicked off New York’s Fashion Week in 2016, when the Men’s first split from women’s, his shows have never failed to disappoint. Over the past few seasons, Abboud has upped the tailored look for men. Rich fabrics and elegant pieces have be the de rigeur for his collections and we see that trend continuing in his latest collection.
Joseph AbboudA/W 2018 collection was a look back to Hollywood’s past. It was a time when dressing up meant glamour. It’s that dandy look that is starting to become more prevalent as men are relishing the fact of dressing up. The collection featured tailored looks in a heavy concentration of shades of gray in sumptuous fabrics. The cuts were fuller than some of the other tailored looks then we’ve seen. Abboud is a master when it comes to layering so look to see a lot of this looks come Fall/Winter. And while gray was the dominant them, there were pops of color intermixed throughout.
This collection bodes well for the Joseph Abboud franchise. With Abboud running Men’s Wearhouse as well as Joseph A. Banks, we expect some of this styling to trickle down to these stores as well. What should be particularly interesting to see if any of these styles influence the new Joseph A Banks made to measure program. One would certainly hope so. We can’t wait to get our hands on the Joseph Abboud A/W 2018 collection.
