is the New Tes­ta­ment of the Show­stopHOOd By AiR per page, and the 37 looks of the brand’s most re­cent cat­walk show make Thom Browne look like a Swiss banker, and Bern­hard Willhelm like a re­pressed di­vin­ity pro­fes­sor. Look num­ber 16 summed it all up: a thin, white polo–neck em­bla­zoned with the brand logo, worn with a pair of zipped and ripped trousers, black shoes dipped in egg yolk, and a furry lit­tle bag sported on the fore­arm ( win­ner of the 2016 gong for most mind­bend­ing man–bag ). Plus a leather tail­coat, and the oblig­a­tory dummy, just the thing for a job in­ter­view at HSBC or to con­vince your gran that you should in­herit the fam­ily pile in­stead of your fawn trench–coat–wear­ing sis­ter.

keys lOuiS VuiT­TOn Mul­ti­ple shades of pur­ple by VER­SAcE,

of thorns by HAidER Ack­ER­mAnn, be­cause, well, this

is my body, take it and eat it. The pleated trousers from HOOd By

AiR: to­tally ir­re­sistible, with their lit­tle yel­low belt that qui­etly

The bowler cap, by ROBERT gEllER. The very or­di­nary red T– shirt

by cRAig gREEn. Ex­cept that it has a sleeve­less

cut and the shoul­ders are raised above the head , with

a small slash for the eyes and a white dot at so­lar plexus

level. Min­i­mal, yes, but so cool you can wear it with the plainest of black

espadrilles.
