“But leave it to Wang Kai and Chen Kun to bring a lighter touch to the week. … With fancy footwear and a double-breasted jacket, Kun elevated the baggy, 1980s silhouettes made popular in American Gigolo.” – Vogue.com

As a string of men’s fashion weeks concludes this week, here’s a round-up of some of the looks. We have Kris Wu Yifan in London,  Chen Kun, Wang Kai, Sheng Yilun, Chen Xuedong  in Milan, Yang Yang, Jing Boran in Paris. In particular of note is Kris Wu Yifan, who is the first male actor of Chinese descent to walk the runaways for a high-end fashion show (Burberry).

In addition to appearances at shows, most of them also took some time for street style photoshoots, so you can expect more in the coming weeks.  So, which looks are your favorites?

Milan, where everyone was at.

I know there’s a lot of Wang Kai, but  I’m already limiting it to the shows or else there’ll be four for Tod’s alone.

Wang Kai in Fendi

Wang Kai in the dressing room of Fendi, with two different shoes. Can you guess which one he picked?

Trick question! He picked neither.

I can’t actually tell if this is the same shoe as the one on his left foot or a different one ….

  2. im dying here seeing Wangkai… lols… why sooo hawt man!
    wang kai in white, my least fave. sorry.

    but perhaps, i’ll say, Yang yang. this boy looks adorably handsome, haha
    wow… kris is numero uno??? uhm… preference :P

  3. Kris Wu actually got a solo feature on Vogue.com and was featured heavily by Burberry in their social media accounts (not to mention the Burberry CEO praised him extensively in an interview).

    I think Kris Wu walking the runway and being the first Chinese actor to do so is well deserved. I can’t think of other actors in his generation that would have been able to pull it off. He has the face and the height for fashion show runways.

    All the men looked nice although some outfits were.. questionable (not their fault though, we know the fashion houses decide what their invitees are going to wear).

  4. They all looked so nice! And Jung Yong-hwa being a fan is too cute.

    One thing that annoys me though, is how Western reporters are unable to differentiate between Chinese surnames and given names (a la the Vogue article). It just happens so much, even in very professional sources.

  5. Yang Yang looked good!

    Not a lot of men can’t pull off wearing all red, but Wang Kai looked very cool somehow! I may also add, he’s super skinny. He need to buff up in case his next projects have him needing to carry his leading ladies (granted most actress are stick figure also).
