04 Jul SPRING/SUMMER ’16 MENSWEAR TREND REPORT
Next year boys will be embracing their feminine side, Burberry among others take a step to dare their beloved followers to wear embroidery fabrics and lace textures. Also the pant legs get wider for next season, in the past years the menswear collections have been all about looking fit and slim pants, now they get wide and comfy.
Need for Speed meets Louis XVI in the latest collection of Moschino, where the models were all dressed up as if going to a NASCAR race in the summer and a hot party in Versalles.
“Florals? For spring? – Groundbreaking.”
[ Picturing Miranda raising an eyebrow in our minds. ]
Yes! Florals are back, probably they never faded away. As we have seen in Gucci, Saint Laurent, Moschino, and an oriental garden embroidered in the S/S Louis Vuitton collection, this botanical trend takes over the runway for next spring-summer. Suits are printed with a variety of flowers types and fruits, but some other outfits – as Kris Van Assche did for Dior Homme – are more subtle, instead of prints we have the outline of embroidered flowers on the slim darker suits.
Olivier presented his first menswear show at Paris Fashion Week, a Safari inspired collection where all the models were traveling as an aventurier, as said by Rousteing.
