Seen On & Off the Runways: Men’s White Sneakers

The white sneaker has graduated from grade school. According to the New York Times, these classic kicks were a recurring trend at this month’s men’s fashion weeks, all the way from the models’ feet down to the front-row audience.

But unlike grade school? These are white leather, not canvas. And they’re a whole lot more versatile. In Milan, Giorgio Armani’s menswear collection, “Echoes of Armani,” showed them with classic, tailored suits. Also, Gucci’s collection paired white sneakers with every color, pattern, and type of suit. London’s Alexander McQueen put a modern twist on this happening trend with printed graphic suits, combining British tailoring with an urban approach.

Off the runways? The white sneaker adds a more finished and tailored look than your everyday running sneaker. Josh Peskowitz, the men’s fashion director at Bloomingdale’s, claims he’s “been wearing them a lot more than expected.” He rocks them with formal suits and everyday outfits, on both sunny and rainy days. Jian DeLeon, the deputy style editor at Complex, even went so far as to pair a plaid suit with white sneakers out to the ballet (how bold).

Feel free to wear them with (almost) anything in your closet, from casual Friday to lazy Sunday. But for how long? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if white is here to stay.

The Friday Follow: 4 Instagram Accounts We’re Loving Right Now

The Friday Follow

There’s a kid in all of us. Which is why we can’t resist double-tapping every single photo these fashionable, pint-sized cuties post.

1.  We fell head over heels for little Mayhem’s paper dresses weeks ago. So we obviously can’t stop guessing what @2sisters_angie will post next. 

2. At only five years old, @alonso_mateo already has more Gucci (and swagger) than us.

3. If only we could rock a topknot and aviators like @hails_world. One day, one day.

4. It’s safe to say @masonkjsmommy has mastered the art of layering. His cardigan collection is beyond enviable.

Molto Bene: Giuseppe Zanotti Launches a Clothing Collection

In the world of high-fashion footwear, few designers possess the power to consistently set tongues wagging the way Giuseppe Zanotti does with his ultra-sexy stilettos. (Just check out a Shoe Cam or two at this Sunday’s Academy Awards, and you’ll see what I mean.) If, like me, you’ve ever flipped through your favorite fashion glossy and wondered how Zanotti’s sporty and sometimes punk aesthetic would translate to a top, a pair of pants, or a dress, wonder no more. The Italian designer has launched a new clothing capsule collection.

The best part? The collection is described as showing a mix of “hip-hop aesthetics, urban influences, and sportswear inspirations,” which might just be a nod to the superstar designer’s DJ past. For his devotees, it means clothes that go from runway to reality with utmost ease.
