The London Menswear Collections are a great place to observe the blurring boundaries between classical tailoring and new interpretations from younger designers that make the market today so interesting. Here are 4 key trends of the recent shows:
Military inspirations are nothing new, but what’s interesting here is how smart and luxurious classics contrast with oversized, slouchy silhouettes and unexpectedly curved lines.
New relaxed tailoring silhouettes perfectly serve the modern expectation to look smart, be comfortable and have the ability to blend between wearable occasions all with a contemporary sporty attitude.
A much more flamboyant interpretation still focuses on luxuriant fabrics, large statement patterns and an occasional grungy undertone.
Lastly, 70s influence still remains relevant and pairs new proportional spins with conventional retro shapes. By keenly minimizing or exaggerating details these pieces revitalize the nod to the past.
