Men’s Folio is finally just a month away from its milestone 20th anniversary issue. And before the real revelry begins, the ultimate amuse-bouche, The Fall Fashion issue, is being served. This could well be MF’s best September issue ever. The line-up includes exclusives with Silvia Venturini Fendi and Tomas Maier, who speaks to Men’s Folio not once but twice – about his tuxedo-influenced Fall/Winter 2017 collection, as well as Bottega Veneta’s new Parco Palladiano fragrances. Via a special fashion feature, join Gucci backstage at its first combined show in Milan, as MF dissects Alessandro Michele’s enormously complex botany-themed collection.
Closer to home, Dover Street Market Singapore opened its doors slightly over a month ago, sending street fashion fanatics into a frenzy over its special tie-ups with Gosha Rubchinskiy and Nike, amongst others. While limited edition DSM Singapore T-shirts got completely snapped up in a matter of 20 minutes, the store continues to see exciting product drops. Discover the latest collections of some of DSM’s top collaborators as well as fashion’s most exciting new innovators, like Craig Green and Vetements, in the Features section.
Wang Chenming is one other rising talent that Men’s Folio has tapped for The Fall Fashion Issue. The model, who’s currently one of China’s biggest breakouts, fronts the issue in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture – new age, sporty suits designed by Alessandro Sartori for his debut collection as artistic director of the house. “For Wang’s whirlwind, 24-hour trip to Singapore for our September issue cover exclusive, he turns up the heat in front of our camera at The St Regis Singapore before quietly confessing to having a love-hate relationship with photoshoots and flying,” says Editor Ian Lee.
And as always, because Men’s Folio believes that it’s not just clothes that maketh the man, the team has also gathered the most captivating timepieces, accessories and scents to complete the season’s hottest looks.
