Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For centuries Fashion has always been forward-looking and breaking boundaries in terms of styling, cut and silhouettes. What used to be fashionable in the past, may seem as a passé now especially with the ever changing trends set by high street fashion houses. Before we take a look at the recent menswear collections, let us understand what lead to shift in the 'beauty' concept.
The market in the streetwear / sportswear lux industry is always present in the fashion scene, in a smaller targetted zone years ago. For instance, Supreme and vans have always been in the scene for many years targeting skateboarders and younger generation selling sneakers and t-shirts. Sportswear such as Nike and Adidas have been marketing high-functional, specific shoes for different sports and is highly regarded as the brand to go to for sports related wears. That was years ago.
SUPREME collaboration with Louis Vuitton has been a huge success in the market. Some of the products include SUPREME's trademark red and the LV monogram on bags, shoes, hoodies.
Also to mention the king Virgil Abloh's Off-White and newly appointed LV's creative director in menswear.
How has this changed the menswear suit scene / tailoring scene?
Lets take a look at the recent Dior Homme Spring / Summer 2019 designed by Dior's creative director Kim Jones (sports and streetwear designer):
Now let's take a look at LV's menswear Spring / Summer 2019 designed by LV's creative director Virgil Abloh (sports and streetwear designer):
Here's Valentino Menswear Spring / Summer 2019 designed by Valentino's creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli.
To balance it out, here are some of the designers that are trained in menswear tailoring.

Giorgio Armani Spring /Summer 2019:
This is how you balance streetwear / sports lux / suits.
Word of caution, it may not be 'trendy' after a shift in the future fashion scene. Ultimately, I would recommend a good ol' pair of leather shoes.
