BREEZY AND LOOSE IS THE LOOK DU JOUR.
Lee Oliveira files from Milano, where buttons remain undone
These pictures from Milan feature a number of the year’s menswear trends brought to life on the streets of the fashion capital.
Unbuttoned shirts over a singlet or tee were prominent on catwalks during fashion weeks this year and continued outside the venues for that cool but casual look.
Slides and futuristic trainers are an essential part of the highend athleisure look, along with pants you could potentially go skateboarding in and then wear to cocktails afterwards.
Statement graphics, logos, retro art – any or all of the above are a de rigueur part of the upmarket smart casual we see here.
On the opposite page are a few looks from Street Seens taken from earlier issues this year.
The take-out? There is no discernible thread running through mesnwear trends at the moment. In fact, it’s something of a stylistic free-for-all with a number of competing movements at work for the attention of the male consumer.
Which ain’t a bad thing, per se... Visit mensstyle. com.au during the hiatus until our Autumn 2018 issue for regular updates on menswear news and trends.
