Toni Tran, Fashion Editor of Fashitects and Menswear, Travel & Lifestyle Blogger, shares his views on iconic looks to look out for, great outfits and the next big thing in mens fashion.
They say, hat's complete an outfit. Christopher Bailey the boss of Burberry, sends the models down the runway with flopped wide-brimmed hats. Refreshingly bold and colour coordinated to match his casual tailoring. From Teal blues to vivid reds, there is just about the whole rainbow chart in this SS15's collection. Colourful sneakers, cropped ankle trousers & hat's should be on everyone's checklist for next season trends.
Designer: Alexander Mcqueen
Alexander Mcqueen's captivating graphic's prints, catches the whole audience's eye from a distance. The maple strokes infused with statement symbolic British colours reminds me of the enlarged closeup of camouflage army prints. One for the adventurous kind, if it's an attire to get everyone engaged you are sure to be popular.
Designer: Oliver Spencer
Just to keep you informed, this is not a photobomb or a Nottinghill Carnival Parade. The finale of Oliver Spencer's performance with Bongo Drums uplifted the atmosphere with exotic Brazilian Dancers. Perhaps a reference to the World cup this season, the ladies definitely put a smile on everyones face. The collection was based on Architect Luis Barragen, who is known for his light and form & space of exterior courtyards.
Streetwear Designer KTZ, has the whole edgy & adventurous urban edge
Using contrasting elements of monochromatic blacks & whites, the prints are very graphical, replicating the greek roman patterns. With references of the romanesque Gladiator, the muscular man collection connotates the strong and confident personalities in his platform gladiator sandals.
We all know about the Marketing tactics of Brand's with their logos. Jeremy Scott for Moschino, takes advantage of the brand and creates a vertical and horizontal checked pattern from a distance. It's a walking advertisement for getting noticed, but am sure Jeremy loves to share his personality with the world in his designs.
Designer: Craig Green
One to watch. Craig Green bring's his creativity to the table again. Panelling Patchwork and textured quilted padding, resembles the Japanese like kimono volumes.His simplistic take on garments this season was a beautiful take on a meaningful message, 'the silent protest' as he stated, as models walked bare foot with wooden framed flowing fabrics.
Designer: A. Sauvage
The 3 piece collection to every suit. Not the tailored waistcoat, but a matching printed shirt to blend in with A. Sauvage's Forest leaf pattern. One for the bold character, moving forth with interesting & photographic designs from your traditional tailored suits.
The higher end of high street brand Topman, has the trends rolling faster than olympic runners. The modernised twist on seventies and nineties vintage is reinvented this SS15 with skinny fit silhouettes. Old school but refreshing to see it again, the flairs, waist belt and big curved pap-els .
