Dubai, UAE, September 15, 2016: While the 90’s trend is sweeping across female fashion, menswear has taken a more decidedly elegant approach, absorbing inspiration for the AW16 lines from the counterculture of the 1960’s.
Statement checks and stripes, a tan-dominated palette and retro shapes which,, include high necks are key. Layering gives the look a modern update, particularly in the form of oversized jerseys, military-inspired rib knits and black suede jackets while Outerwear pieces feature herringbone or dogtooth patterning are the perfect finish to a modern smart silhouette. Bomber jackets are back this season but are given an interesting update in new fabrics such as silk and suede.
Casualwear has a utility influence with plenty of neutral tones, while pops of red trim and unique collar detailing add an autumnal twist. Sportswear is a huge trend for the AW16 season overall and spills heavily into menswear. Track pants have become the season’s essential trouser and are perfectly paired with longline textured coats while traditional workwear has been fused with trending sportswear to create a collection that provides stylish options for the modern man, offering an improved fit using premium fabrics and performance stretch pieces.
