Mens fashion Spring/Summer 2016 trendsDecember 16, 2015
Sometimes the latest in men’s fashion is overshadowed by the infamous women’s-wear shows taking place in the hottest locations around the globe. Although it is generally less anticipated, it is every bit as influential when it comes to determining the biggest trends for the new season.
Mens fashion S/S 2016 trends
One of the most prestigious events is hosted in the UK’s capital showcasing the best in British and international design, and proving British men’s fashion is at the forefront of the industry. London is the global home of men’s fashion and continues to bring homegrown talent and fashion heritage into modern culture and design.
Mens fashion – spring/summer 2016
Men’s fashion has seen statement looks appear for spring/summer 2016 and many designers weren’t afraid to embrace a strong feminine touch in their collections. Others displayed vintage inspirations drawing from iconic styling and strong bold design. This season saw the audience focus on the clothing and not the celebrities gracing the front row, giving spectacular design the admiration it deserved.
There were an eclectic collection of looks to watch out for and we’ve put together our top men’s fashion trends for the new season.
Mens fashion – spring florals
As we approach the warmer months, it’s hard to get away from the traditional floral prints we all know and love. Like with many collections, this season has seen a bold and daring selection of designs grace the catwalk. Designer Richard James paired stylish tailoring with an array of spring colour and print whilst Gucci displayed unique wildlife scenes embracing the seasons spirit.
Mens fashion – lace detailing
Not only a big vintage inspired trend in women’s-wear, men’s fashion has embraced this feminine yet powerful trend combination. International designers went crazy for an all over lacey look or exquisite detailing, proving men can pull of an edgy statement style. Moschino displayed the darker powerful side of lace whereas Burberry displayed an enchanting selection of baroque fabrics.
Mens fashion – stripy tailoring
The men’s collections wouldn’t be complete without a fabulous display of classic and captivating tailoring examples. Now match this with bold and vivacious stripes and you have the perfect collection for spring. Many designers including Phillip Lim, Givenchy and Tiger of Sweden all embraced this striking and authoritative look.
Mens fashion – motif love
We all love a great motif and what better way to give men a bit of flavour and excitement in their wardrobe than sporting an on trend catwalk design. Logo lovers Moschino displayed their delight in a full racing ensemble yet Prada opted for a more sophisticated and decadent racing car motif, perfect for a masculine fun and fashionable look.
Mens fashion – crumpled styling
British men’s tailoring is conventionally sharp and astute yet this season saw UK designers take on a messy, crumpled suit style. Something that looks like you’ve left it on the bedroom floor (in a matter of speaking) gave a unique and surprising selection of pieces as displayed by Matthew Miller and Paul Smith.
Men’s fashion is a becoming commanding and influential element of the industry and the next installment is back in January bringing us the best in autumn/winter 2016 looks.
