Dying to know what designers have in mind for the male population this spring? Or just looking for fresh ideas? Look no further: Here are the most exciting new directions in menswear.
- SEVENTIES WORKWEAR
Forget overalls: this smartened-up take on 1970's utility styling mixes functional fabrics, such as Prada’s raw denim, with tailoring for a hardwearing look you could still wear to the office.
These subtly tinted shades of beige and grey are huge, and lent everything from Corneliani suits to Bottega Veneta sportswear a desert-inspired edge on the catwalk.
- ARTISTIC KNITS
There’s nothing boring about tank tops this season. Designers Raf Simons and JW Anderson have updated this humble piece of knitwear with tapestry-like scenic landscapes.
- ITALIAN RIVIERA
The 1950's resort looks made famous by Alain Delon in Purple Noon are infusing preppy style with a lightweight summer feel, thanks to vintage classics like Parke & Ronen’s stripy golf jacket.
- PREMIUM PARKAS
Tailored rather than functional, this familiar shape carried over from winter takes on a more formal and luxurious-looking role for spring, layered over suiting at E Tautz and Les Hommes.
