Fashion is often criticized for its obsession with youth but some designers have different takes on it. They interpret this supposed ‘obsession’ as nostalgic windows into “good old times” when perspectives were fresh. Take the Ben Sherman spring 2019 show for example—a flashback into the neat and preppy collegiate style of the 1930s. The show was definitely overloaded with youth as the cherub-faced male models worked the runway in varsity jackets and pastel shorts. There was, however, a modern maturity on how they were styled, like the pairing of the candy-hued pieces with the tailored suits or the subtle clash of stripes. The floral-printed pieces, done in collaboration with the House of Holland, added a contemporary quirk that helped the collection look less 1939 and more 2019. These clothes do look good on the young, although the more mature crowd can still rock them as well.
