The annual awards by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has always been a glitzy affair, headlined by the luminaries of the American fashion industry. This year, the association chose to go the digital way.
Last week, the winners were declared online through a pre-recorded video starring Tom Ford, Chairman, CFDA.
“2020 has been anything but typical, and we decided to forgo the in-person event, and instead announce the winners here today,” said Ford.
We take a look at the hottest menswear designed by the champs of CFDA awards this year, for the Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter seasons, from Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss and Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli to Kim Jones of Dior.
Kim Jones, Dior – Global Men’s Designer of the Year Dior Men’s Fall’20 collection by Kim Jones is a blast of colours and prints. Beret caps, hats and bags are the currently trending accessories for men.
Kim Jones collaborated with the Jordan Brand for this exclusive sports-silhouette inspired range of ready-to-wear and accessories. Nothing beats a sharp white and black combo!
This one is a dual-toned bomber jacket in satin techical twill with two-way zipper from Dior’s Winter’20 collection.
Pierpaolo Piccioli, Valentino – Global Women’s Designer of the Year Although Piccioli won the Global Womenwear recognition, his menswear in 2020 was as much trendsetting. Oversized suits and shirts with magnified text prints took the centre-stage in Valentino’s Fall-Winter 2020 edit.
He didn’t shy away from using bold, statement-making colour contrast in Valentino’s FW’2020 men’s collection.
Valentino’s special SS’20 capsule for MyTheresa had Roger Dean’s art printed on the fabric of this formal chic outerwear, designed by Piccioli.
Kerby Jean-Raymond, Pyer Moss – American Menswear Designer of the Year This mint, red and balck ensemble from Collection 3 is a part of Pyer Moss’ Founder and Designer Kerby Jean-Raymond’s docu series American, Also.
Imagined by Kerby Jean-Raymond, this black jacket flaunts clean white lines on the edges and is peppered with graphic visuals on the front.
Reebok by Pyer Moss brings an aesthetic spin to this combination of sporty bomber jacket and ridged nylon pants.
