Trendsetters: The 20 Best Designer Brands In The World


Whether you choose to buy from them or not, designer brands are shaping the world of menswear. Directly and indirectly, they dictate what you wear every day, from the print on your shirt to the color of your pants.

All these things that we take for granted only exist as part of our wardrobes, because at some point a designer sent them to a runway and the rest of the world followed suit. And when someone has so much to say about what you wear, it's probably worth knowing at least a little bit about them.

Below is a carefully selected selection of men's designer brands that we believe are the largest and most influential in the world. These are the brands that have shaped, and are shaping, the way we dress, whether in tailoring, casual wear, shoes or accessories. Whether you're looking for high-end brands to buy or just want to learn a little more about the designers who organize your wardrobe, here's what you need to know.

Italian fashion house Gucci is a constant pioneer and has been the world's most popular luxury brand for several years. In its current form, under the direction of Creative Director Alessandro Michele, the brand is known for its floral prints, 1970s-inspired color palette, opulence and androgynous flamboyance.

Gucci is also the source of several iconic models that today can be considered classics in menswear. For example, the horsebit moccasin is a Gucci design that has been endlessly imitated and remains as relevant today as it was when it was launched in 1953.

Today, the Parisian brand is at the forefront of fashion, under the creative direction of Off-White designer Virgil Abloh. LV was instrumental in haute couture's adoption of streetwear, partnering with skate brand Supreme in 2017 in a move that set the tone for what was to come in fashion for the next five years.
