Antonio Banderas’ Fashion Line is Here, and It’s Really Boring

Antonio Banderas’ debut menswear collection, in collaboration with Selected Homme, hit the market yesterday. The line features polo shirts, topcoats, leather jackets, and, you guessed it, jeans. “How exciting! How unexpected!” thought no one. While the collection is certainly high-quality and very wearable, it represents a disappointing trend in menswear: the celebrity designer stepping in to regurgitate the same few biker-chic garments for mass consumption by readers of Men’s Health. Banderas’ collection, while certainly well-designed, is truly interchangeable with another straight male celebrity guest designer of recent weeks: Idris Elba.

While studying at fashion’s Hogwarts, London’s Central St Martins, Banderas was interviewed by school publication 1Granary, where he explained high hopes for his forthcoming collection.

“There is one garment that I love that was lost in menswear a long time ago, and I would like to experiment with it: the cape,” he said.
