Three weeks’ worth of menswear fashion weeks have circulated through European fashion hubs, including London, Florence, Milan, and Paris. Still under way in the French capital, the menswear shows for spring 2014 have been rich with batshit-crazy looks. From a white lace unitard in London to a Hula skirt in Milan, see the wackiest highlights.



There's a grand total of three different floral prints in this single Gucci suit. The jacket, pants, and scarf all bear different patterns, creating a mix-matched garden of sorts.

Italian label Etro is known for its bright prints and bohemian sensibility. But as far as we know, sombreros have never been a part of the equation—until now. This tight-pant look paraded down the house’s spring menswear runway to a caliente aplomb.

Dsquared2 is loved by Europeans for its flashy sensibility. But the jury’s out on whether a hula skirt worn over jeans will take off on the streets.

Umit Benan

This Umit Benan look would almost be normal—if not for the fez hat and terrifying mask. After all, the best way to sell your designs to a roomful of buyers is to scare the living daylights out of them. Makes total sense to us.


Moncler Gamme Bleu

Moncler Gamme Bleu, designed by notable avant garde enthusiast Thom Browne, offered this cricket-inspired look that is equal parts preppy and really whack.

Vivienne Westwood

We'd never evangelize the merits of a beret, but bucking the status quo once again, Vivienne Westwood went and did that in her spring menswear show. As if that weren't enough, she paired the French relic accessory with an orange mesh turtleneck, a silk paisley jacket, and Internet-art printed pants.


Alexander McQueen

The house of McQueen is widely lauded for its of out-of-the-box designs. And it did not skimp on those for its menswear show this season, which included this Baroque lace-print look, topped off with mary-jane shoes.

Yes, you are looking at a white lace unitard. For men.

Dolce & Gabbana

In all fairness, this is the kind of swimwear look that men favored circa 1940. But that doesn't make it that much more relevant for today. To top it off, the Dolce & Gabbana men's show, presented in Milan, welcomed a visit from an unplanned runway streaker. That's true sex appeal.

J.W. Anderson

This label, designed by Jonathan Anderson, has set a new standard for gender-neutral clothing—and this taupe capelet with little bows fits the bill.

It's a printed, unzipped onesie, with a matching pair of underwear, snakeskin sandals, a gold necklace, and smears of neon paint. Need we say more.
