This menswear season has been one of firsts, surprises and come backs; with London having its inaugural mens' fashion week, Jil Sander back at the helm and Gaultier skipping menswear and showing it all at Couture. Those being just some of the focal points, the rest was all about the clothes. With a genius display from Umit Benan, tap dancing at Moncler and androgynous sportswear at Prada. So much to mention, so we've summed it up wiht our take on what to look out for for SS13.
On the horizon - Metallics
Having made a slight appearance at Bottega and Neil Barrett last season. Metallics are back with a vengence and can be seen in Lanvin, Versace, Margiela, Neil barrett, Burberry & Frankie Morello (to name a few). Though not a trend to be over amorous with.
Material of the season - Denim
Single, double, triple however you want to wear it there are variety of washes and cuts. Though always prominent from the denim powerhouses (Diesel, Dqsuared, G-Star etc.) this season sees Vuitton and Asshe & Howell amongst others giving thier take on denim.
The trend of the season - Summer Sportswear
A fundamental and inescapable trend every spring/summer, however this coming season a sport identity is shown throughout ranging from baseball shirts, neoprene suits, sports vests, skateboards and utilitarian trainers. Maybe it's something to do with a rather large sporting event happening shortly...
Must have - The bomber jacket
Not be confused with the letterman jackets from seasons past, the bomber is all Top Gun-tastic. At least one was present in the bulk of shows in all the capitals. A wardrobe staple that will remain classic and versatile.
