What we know today as the Beret was called felt hat hundreds of years ago. Yes, the Beret has been around that long. In fact, according to fashion historians, the Beret has been around for millennia.
This disc-like shaped headgear made of wool and worn by anyone wanting to look like an artist, a revolutionary or simply wanting to keep warm, looked nothing like its original form. It is said that the beret (then called felt) is a crossbreed between the floppy Petasos hat and the cone-shaped Pileos hat. Yeah, that’s right, I had to google both these hats to see how they looked like. Judging from their shapes, I wouldn’t argue against fashion historians. At the time, this headgear was made from felt as it was simple and cheap material to use.
So as mentioned in my previous article, I should have shared these with you a few weeks ago. However, better late than never. So without further ado, here are some of my favorites shows from LFWM AW18.
Wood Wood is a contemporary fashion and lifestyle brand based in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was founded in 2002 which makes it the oldest clothing brand in this article.
London Fashion Week Men’s AW18 has been one of the highlights of the past 6 months for me. Unfortunately, I always leave applying for my press pass for the 11th hour and get stressed on the first day trying to get it printed. But apart from the press pass debacle, I am very pleased with how AW18 turned out. As a stylist and influencer, it was a pleasure to see the likes of Vogue, Esquire, GQ and many more featuring me as one of the best-dressed men of the season. However, the one thing that made all the effort of getting up on a Saturday and Sunday morning to head out in the cold was the chance to hang out and catch up with fellow bloggers. Some of these bloggers live outside London and so the only opportunity to see them is during London Fashion Week Men’s. Between catching up with old friends and making new ones, LFWM is the perfect place and time to spot trends or even be part of trendsetting where street style is concerned.
So London Fashion Week Men’s AW18 has come and gone. It has been an incredible event for me personally. Apart from seeing some amazing runway and presentations, I get to hang out with a few of my blogger friends. Unlike previous seasons, AW18 was reduced to 3 days only instead of 4. I was able to attend day 1 and day 2.
