Camel is the new black! Trade in your black coat for one in camel for a sleek, modern and sophisticated look this fall. Showing up on the runways of Calvin Klein and Emporio Armani in all lengths and fabrics was refreshing to see. Since we all know men are creatures of habit, this autumn, buy your same black coat in Camel just to spice it up. Who knows you might just like it!
So long uber slim cuts and hello to Relaxed Tailoring! For all you fashionable men who detested the skinny leg pant and super fitted jackets but equally disdained the overly baggy clothing as well, this is for you. Relaxed tailoring is a hybrid of sorts: looser but still tailored. Raf Simmons and D&G did a wonderful job with this new trend that I forecast may turn into a new classic. Not to worry guys, you can be comfortable and still look well put together with this trend!
Brights were visible on the runways of Louis Vuitton, Dukie Brown, and Michael Bastian. Men don’t ordinary embrace fuchsia, orange and turquoise but I guess they decided to try something new. Louis Vuitton injected bright jade in between his neutrals and blacks while Dukie Brown made us jolt with electric red and cobalt blue pants.
The sixties were in full swing during SS11 with Mods and Rockers out in full force for Burberry Prorsum, Versace and Givenchy. These designers feeling nostalgic decided to pay homage to Britain with black looks in leather, studs and chains.
Some Stick Around A Season or Two
Stripes and Patterns are here to stay! Making their appearance in back to back seasons (SS11 and AW11) it does not appear these trends will be disappearing anytime soon.
The Nautical look showed up on the catwalks from New York to Milan and numerous points in between. Featured on the runways of Salvatore Ferragamo, Juntya Watanabe and Jean Paul Gaultier made us all feel like jumping on a yacht and setting sail. Updating this classic with looser, lighter fabric and replacing the traditional blue stripe with a khaki stripe no one will mistake you for your grandfather.
