Leather made a bold statement on the runways this year. The juxtaposition of this fabric with other textures and materials created an intriguing contrast, adding depth and personality to the outfits.

It reflected a fusion of traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design, making it a standout style to try for the modern Filipino man.

Our own designers also unapologetically dared to defy conventional style rules by introducing cropped coats and jackets in their newest collections. This departure from the norm offers a fresh perspective for today’s stylish man, proving that, at times, going short is the ultimate way to elevate your sartorial appeal.

Stay loose, stay stylish

Comfort met style on the runways as loose-fitting pants took over. Wide-leg trousers, oversized cargo pants, and billowy joggers were all the rage. This trend celebrated freedom of movement without sacrificing refinement, offering a great alternative to the often constricting world of men’s fashion.

Baring it right

Subtle sensuality found its place in men’s fashion at the BYS Fashion Week arena. Designers incorporated tasteful cutouts, sheer fabrics, and strategically placed openings in their collections, adding an element of surprise and allure, allowing men to experiment with revealing just a hint of skin while maintaining a sense of sophistication.
