The capital of Great Britain became the most important place for the fashion lovers just for a week because of the menswear fashion week runway shows. London fashion week gathered lots of designers which showed te spring and summer 2016 collections and proved how different the approach to the fashion pieces can be. Novelty was mixed with traditions, colours and prints were rather unexpected and the choice of materials and cuts was gorgeous. So, what new tendencies have we seen in the runway shows of London fashion week? What trends will be on top in spring and summer 2016? Let’s see.
Feminine lace can be rather masculine
Burberry showed that lace, which is traditionally used only for the feminine pieces of clothes can be perfectly applied to the menswear silhouettes. New Christopher Bailey’s collection for SS2016 consists of wonderful shirts, suits, ties and even stylish trenches and coats made of lace. Now this material looks awesome and modern.
Contrasting parts can look great
The designers of Topman Design offer an interesting collection full of contrasting details. They can be a short top and very long pants, wide-leg trousers and a tight turtleneck. Long jackets they offer wearing with stylish shorts. Also they made pyjama-tailored pieces perfect for the everyday life. Relaxed cuts and candy suits look interesting and fresh.
Nautical prints and cuts are fresh and modern
The fashion house of Alexander McQueen created a new spring/summer 2016 collection, which looked very fresh and stylish. Sarah Burton reinvented fantastic stories about the sea monsters and brave sailors, pirates and mysterious creatures and transported them into the prints of the spring and summer collection. The perfectly cut jackets are combined with stylish tight fitting trousers. Long coats are adorned with metallic eyelets.
Zips can be cool
Christopher Shannon added zips and double- zips to the pieces of his spring and summer collection. Such detail looks very modern and can take even basic pieces to the new and cool level. Other designers also used this detail in their upcoming collections. Try applying this trick and you’ll look different.
The fashion of ‘70s is on trend
Stuart Vevers, the designer of Coach, created a wonderful collection of modern pieces with a retro inspired look. Bright colours and bold prints of the jackets now look awesome. The designer paired them with casual shorts and stylish sneakers. Take inspiration from the 70s but make this trend cool and fresh.
Spring and summer 2016 in menswear are going to be bright and very interesting. So, search for the inspiration in the latest fashion collections, create your own outfits and be stylish. Don’t forget about accessories and good mood.
