Puce, fawn or—it don’t mat­ter. It’s time to bring brown out of the shade

Okay, so you might as­so­ciate brown with grandpa jumpers and army cadets, and, I’ll ad­mit, it’s not been the most pop­u­lar shade of late. But if the spring/sum­mer 2017 run­ways are any­thing to go by (they are), then it’s time to stop tread­ing so gin­gerly and in­vest in brown. Oft as­so­ci­ated with the great out­doors, Neil Bar­rett’s brown— plas­tered with geo­met­ric shapes in black and peach—was noth­ing if not ur­bane slicker. At Vete­ments, the vi­sion­ary Demna Gvasalia col­lab­o­rated with Levi’s and Carhartt (just two of the 18 brands he part­nered with for the show) to cre­ate a brown cor­duroy Levi’s jump­suit, and brown over­sized Carhartt dun­ga­rees and baggy trousers. Paired with brown cow­boy boots and brown T-shirts, these looks un­abashedly cham­pi­oned the colour. Canali made the colour off-du­ty­busi­ness­man-friendly in a look that was re­ally worth faun-ing over.
