THINGS: Menswear Fall 2013
It’s a fact we’ve all known from seasons ago that menswear is finally coming back to life, but have have we ever seen the world of menswear this alive? Nope! Don’t think so. Fall 2013 will be the season for prints and pattern mixing and matching, textural layering, and the continued use of colour blocking (which is, for me at least, the most fascinating).
Designers are still keeping with the essentials in fall colours: navy, charcoal, and black. But on the side, they’re adding a little (or a lot) of burgundy, mustard, and the color-of-the-season: forest green. Seriously, by next fall, green will be the new black.
The obsession does not stop there: a heavy use of pattern was seen all-over the menswear runways to come for Fall. Dsquared2 and Moschino knew the exact way to do their black-watch tartan, Kenzo blew my mind with their cloud-printed burgundy coat, and Burberry Prorsum stole my heart with their pony hair-tiger printed jacket. Just wait, I’m not done just yet!
Do you believe in leather as being a second skin? Well Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy), Olivier Rousteing (Balmain), and Martin Cooper (Belstaff) do. There will be no better season to wear absolutely everything leather but this coming fall. Whether it’s full-on pants, jacket, and coat, or just a hint of accessories, wearing leather won’t harm you, in any way.
And before you ask, here are my most favorite collections of the season:
They’re Italian and they can do no wrong, especially when it comes to tailoring.
Kim Jones knows how to turn bring beauty and practicality into reality.
Classic, with a lot of twist. The impeccable tailoring + prints + latex : YES!
