FRENETIC FLORALS – Topman Design SS15, Christopher Raeburn SS15, Astrid Andersen SS15, Topman Design SS15

floral looks

Who says guys can’t wear floral? And we mean proper floral– not just those trendy Dad-on-vacation shirts with the tropical Hawaiian print. 

HIGH VIS – Richard Nicoll SS15, Astrid Andersen SS15, Richard Nicoll SS15

high vis

Whether it is incorporated into some eye-catching lining, striking paneling, or makes up the entirety of a bold, luminous jacket, high vis fabrics seem to be cropping up everywhere lately. Will high vis be for the 2010s, what neon was for the 2000s? 

KEEP IT SIMPLE – Christopher Raeburn SS15, Christopher Shannon SS15, Lou Dalton SS15, Christopher Raeburn SS15, Agi & Sam SS15

minimalism

Minimalism continues to be a mainstay of cutting edge menswear in SS15, in terms of both shapes and especially color. Or, more specifically, the lack thereof. 

GET OUT YOUR AWKWARD – Topman Design SS15, Matthew Miller SS15, MAN SS15, Agi & Sam SS15

awkward

As Agi & Sam assured everyone in the press release for their SS15 show, you’re not the only one who feels awkward in a suit….or, you know, awkward about life in general. Own it!

BOOGIE NIGHTS – Jonathan Saunders SS15, Hardy Amies SS15, Topman Design SS15, Hentsch Man SS15, Jonathan Saunders SS15, Agi & Sam SS15

boogie nights

If you’ve ever secretly dreamed of dressing like a sleazy Miami coke dealer in the late ’70s/early ’80s (albeit with impeccable taste in suits), now is your time to shine.

MAN SKIRTS – Agi & Sam SS15, Astrid Andersen SS15, MAN SS15, Agi & Sam SS15, MAN SS15

man skirt

Usually, the preferred lingo in the world of menswear is to refer to them as “aprons” or “kilts—especially if you are Kanye West in Givenchy. Call them what you will, these powerful looks as seen at Astrid Andersen, MAN, and Agi & Sam prove that man skirts are not necessarily “unmanly” and even, when worn the right way, can make a dude look well tough.
