We all know (and adore) London and its cool designers for their edgy, avant-garde way of creating, interpreting and reinterpreting fashion. It is clear that London’s menswear (and so do women’s collections) are been refreshed more and more as years and seasons pass by. A proof of it were these last SPRING / SUMMER 2017 shows. More whimsical, varied, playful, inclusive, lighter and comfortable pieces became key parts in every runway. Without a doubt, costumers want to be pleased by fashion geniuses; and in my opinion, designers are doing wonderfully so!
Here some great trends seen in LONDON’S MENSWEAR SPRING / SUMMER 2017 collections…
STRIPES in all sizes, widths, colors, strategic positions and combinations were all over the place. As classy detailing or with a playful presence, STRIPES ruled on these catwalks. (Katie Eary, Alexander McQueen, Casely Hayford)
Tailored, baggy, skinny or very sporty pants became one the favorites for the more casual risk-takers for their fabulous prints: Geometric, organic, abstract, bohemian, retro or very graphic. (Songzio, Coach, Maison Mihara Yasuhiro)
RAIN JACKETS IN CLASSY COLORS
Fabulous rain jackets in traditional colors and tones: Blue, camel, beige, khaki, burgundy, military green, white… All with magnificent cuts, lengths, fits and detailing; delivered the always necessary amount of classiness to these modern times. (Lou Dalton, Oliver Spencer, E. Tautz)
The athleisure fever is still so very on, as it became pretty obvious with the abundant drawstring -track pants; which did not only reflect the desire and need for comfort; but also the great sense of style that the public of today owns! (Joseph, Liam Hodges, Casely Hayford)
