After witnessing some incredible menswear collections in London, Milan, and Paris, we´re ready to present you with five trends you need to master next season. A (progressive) key trend that kept making appearances on the catwalks was the outdoor trend: lightweight windbreakers, cargo pants, and knitted sweaters, all crafted in embellishments and bold prints. From disciplined silhouettes at Neil Barrett to bold shades at Kenzo and Hermès – this is the season for all-out flaunt manoeuvres.
#1: Yellow Fellow
Hello, yellow. The likes of Paul Smith, Dries Van Noten, and Berluti are all into yellow hues. A risky colour what sometimes doesn’t match anything else, but it can stave off boredom and therefore inject some sizzle in your summer ensemble.
One side effect of one’s love for Honolulu is the revival of the Hawaiian shirt. Louis Vuitton, AMI and Dsquared2 brought this iconic piece back to live by combining it with unexpected items like leather trousers.
#3: Go High or Go Home
Don’t buck the trend, but here’s a scoop six months ahead: high-waisted trousers will be it. Spotted at Rick Owens, Fendi, and Lanvin‘s wide range of functional pieces like technical windbreakers. To be worn with a ‘tucked in’ polo shirt as seen at Fendi.
#4: Earn Your Stripes
Stripes are on the rise. Versace went all the way, Damir Doma is doing it in sophisticated, knitwear – and Marni gave its classic trousers a rich touch by combining it with white shades. We say all or nothing.
#5: Green with Envy
Another colour making inroads into male attire is green. Some brands like Dolce & Gabbana are doing it head to toe and then there are some, like Hermes, who just use this bold shade as an accent to spice up formal looks.
