To help you navigate the market, the first of our 2018 seasonal special editions is focusing on menswear. For the autumn 18 season, our regular twice-yearly reports have been relaunched and expanded to reflect changes in the fashion industry, evolving business trends and new buying patterns.

We talk to the founder of online contemporary menswear retailer The Idle Man, Oliver Tezcan, about today’s male shopper and standing out in a crowded market.
We also catch up with Paris Fashion Week designer Alexandre Mattiussi, founder of menswear brand Ami. Demand from male shoppers for new product has prompted Mattiussi to launch a pre-collection this season, expanding from two to four ranges a year.
There is plenty to inform and inspire you both in print and online, whether you work in menswear or not. Look out for The Womenswear Issue (print edition 9 February) and The Footwear and Accessories Issue (23 February).
