From Milan to London, the Men’s Fall Fashion was daringly rich. Its abundantly repetitious patterns were self evident in Vivienne Westwood and Moschino.
We loved the follow through in prints from head to toe that made runway into moving wallpaper. If the bold color blocking in Iceberg carried a punch the same in Jil Sander was rather sober –a sort of minimal boldness. The silhouettes grew in width just as the volume in the collections of Dirk Bikkembergs.
Already excited about the Spring collections, I am really jubilant about the future of men’s fashion in the months to come! Perhaps the Mayans were correct about the end of the world–the end of monotony that is…
A spotlight on the miniature trends in this Fall’s fashion can be revealing. The Fall fashion affirmed a more than moderate indulgence in black leather, inky blue denim and velvety Merlot corduroy stuff. In a way, it was like the bright lights of men’s fashion making way for the arrival of sartorial elegance.
Double-breasted suit, sport coat, sweater and outerwear jacket made a straight drive into the Men’s Fall wardrobe. The drift from the three-button look to the two-button was conspicuous as several double-breasted suits looked cool and casual.
The accent on leather Skin for coats and sweaters glistened more in combination with other fabrics. The rising grip of texture for the Fall was apparent the way Tweed and corduroy pants had their way to offer a business look when paired with a navy blazer.
In color palette, Green rocked as Olive greens darkened the closet doorways. Denims showed up more in shirts, jackets and jeans with the best pieces coming in darker hues of black, blue and burgundy.
On the accessories front, the penchant for boots stood out no matter the choice was urban, biker, rugged or Red Wing. Perhaps the icing on the cake was newsboy cap that was in harmony with fabrics like Tweed or flannel and adding a new flair to anything that you wear.
