The latest trend in men’s fashion: robes

Prepare for climate change with flowy, comfortable outerwear.

It could be the relaxing of rules of what constitutes masculine, our ever-increasing interest in other cultures, or simply the fact that the weather can get so darn warm these days. Whatever the reason, the upcoming Spring/Summer 2020 (SS20) sartorial season will bring with it plenty of flowing silhouettes. Whether it’s inspired by traditional Arabic djellabas, Grecian robes or, well, your average dress, this trend is good news for those who like their clothing cool and comfortable. Here, we take a closer look at the fluid offerings of three brands.

  • Loewe Men's Robes


    Among the brands that are going long and loose, Loewe offers a selection with the most palpable ethnic influences. Under creative director Jonathan Anderson, the brand has seen a renewed “dedication to global craft”: Paired with accessories such as moccasins and moon-disc pendants at Loewe’s SS20 show, the collection includes flowy tunics made of hand-embroidered cotton from Bangladesh and hand-dyed indigo cloth from Burkina Faso – as well as caftans cut from lush cashmere-suede (pictured).
