Some of my favorite pieces from men's 2017 fall collections

Summer is about to wrap up and we will be in the fall soon.  It's time to take a look at what's next for the coming season.  Here are some of my favorite items from the upcoming season:

Now that Louis Vuitton x Supreme collection had dropped and finished, which pieces were you able to cop?  There were quite a few accessories in this collection.  Most people would say the IT accessories from this collection would be red Christopher backpack, red epi bumbag, or red epi Keepall.  No doubt those items are lit but to me they are not exactly practical for everyday use or just a bit too screaming LV x Supreme for my taste.  I do love the red epi pouchette jour GM though.  Yes, it's very logocentric, but it's not as in your face when carry under your arm and gives you a nice pop of color for your overall outfit.  It also happen to be the "cheapest" larger size accessory from this collection. So IMO, I think it gives you the most bang for the buck.

No fashionable man can call himself fashionable without a bit of Gucci in his wardrobe these days.  And of course ever since hoodies become synonymous with millennials style via Zuckerberg, it had become a stable in men's closet for many seasons now.  I love this version from Gucci.  I always liked dragon motif on things and in this case, Michele put just the right amount of dragon in this hoodie.  It's kinda out there without being insanely out there as some of the stuff from Michele can be a bit aggressive.  

Talk about pop of color.  Not too many men have the confidence of pulling off a pink sweater.  This one, from Valentino's fall/winter collection, is a stand out.  Pierpaolo Piccioli decided to collaborate with Jamie Reid and I think it's a brilliant one.  You may know Jamie Reid from the Sex Pistol's infamous single cover God Save the Queen.  This sweater is embedded with the words "Beauty is a birthright.  Reclaim your heritage."  It perhaps served as a double entendre for Piccioli's new status as the sole design director for Valentino and commentary of the world we live in today.

What's your favorite pieces from this fall?
