Men’s Fashion Weeks 2018 in London, Milan and Paris
Every January, fashion’s luminaries fly into London, Milan and Paris for each city’s Men’s Fashion Week. This biennial menswear show was born in 2012, when London created a weekend dedicated solely to men’s fashion, and other cities later followed suit. Tickets are still available to many shows; just book a private jet to London, Milan and Paris for three weeks of European glamor.
A European extravaganza
With designers’ spring/summer 2017-18 collections just wrapped, excitement for autumn/winter 2018 is in the air. This January, Men’s Fashion Week visits Europe’s three fashion capitals, London, Milan and Paris, for a biennial triathlon of sartorial events before closing in New York in February.
Introduced as the menswear alternative to the womenswear-focused London Fashion Week, the biannual London Fashion Week: Men’s takes place January 6-8 to showcases the pinnacle of British design, with artists like Oliver Spencer, Vivienne Westwood and Bobby Abley showcasing their latest creations on the catwalk.
Held January 13-16, Milan Fashion Week: Men’s is divided into two categories: Pitti Uomo, the menswear trade shows – some of which take place in Florence as well as Milan – and Milano Uomo, featuring Milan’s catwalk shows and Italy’s finest menswear designers including Emporio Armani, Dsquared2 and Versace.
The last stop on our European tour is couture capital of the world, Paris. Paris Fashion Week: Men’s runs January 17-21 and blends both womenswear and menswear in showrooms, events and catwalk shows with creations from designers including Kenzo, Lanvin and Hermes. To see these shows live, apply for accreditation from The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode.
Charter a private jet to London, Milan and Paris
Don’t miss out on these three incredible fashion events. Fly to London City Airport from New York’s JFK Airport in under six hours or from LAX, Los Angeles, in under 11 hours. Air Charter Service (ACS) provides a range of tailored private and business travel packages for a bespoke and luxurious experience.
You and five other fashionistas can benefit from reduced boarding times and private terminals and lounges when you fly in a Cessna Citation CJ3. This private jet offers greater speed, longer range and increased fuel efficiency, not to mention an extended cabin providing more room for carry-on luggage.
After you’ve wrapped in London, the Cessna Citation CJ3 will whisk you to Milan Linate airport in under two hours. Linate is only 5 miles (8 km) east of the city centre, making it the closest (and fastest) choice of airport for your thee-day stop in Italy. After Milan, fly to Paris Le Bourget in just over an hour to enjoy the final men’s fashion week of our tour, before either returning home or heading on to New York’s closing show.
When starting your journey at London Fashion Week: Men’s, why not take time to visit the porcelain piazza at the fashion-filled V&A Museum? Amanda Levete created the world’s first all-porcelain courtyard, an architectural first made up of 11,000 handmade tiles. Elsewhere in England’s capital, see an all-singing, all-dancing show in the West End theatre district, take a spin on the London Eye and scale the O2 Arena for the best panoramic views of this buzzing metropolis.
After landing in Milan, Italy’s capital of chic, be sure to pay a visit to Milano Duomo, the city’s dramatic cathedral. In addition to its breathtaking faҫade and breathtaking rooftop views, the iconic interior is often a backdrop for Milanese fashion shows. While in town, take time to admire the artistic treasures housed at Pinacoteca Ambrosiana library and museum, including Leonardo da Vinci’s early painting The Musician. For a luxurious hotel in which to retire after a fashion-filled weekend, consider the elegant Armani Hotel Milano, located on Via Montenapoleone, the city’s most exclusive shopping street.
Ending your Men’s Fashion Week experience in Paris is a great opportunity to explore the city’s many attractions. Why not get lost in the Louvre, scale the Arc de Triomphe and bask in the beauty of the Luxembourg Gardens? Experience Paris’ finest culinary treats over dinner at Des Gâteaux et du Pain, the crème de la crème of Parisien pâtisseries, or enjoy a glass of Champagne at 58 Tour Eiffel atop the iconic Eiffel Tower. From classic promenades to the best fashion and food in the world, Paris has something for everyone.
