With Greenery as the pantone of the year, military tones continue into the high end collections for Spring Summer 2018. Earthly tones such as khaki drive the direction for this colour for mens fashion, mixing soft muted khakis with neutral tones and blues is key. A pop of colour such as red can bring this pairing alive.

Catwalk Analysis - Twilight Blue

Deep shades of blue filled the catwalks. A move away from the traditional takes to dark rich navys of ultramarine to more muted oxford shades. A key colour for the season.

1940s Resurgence

There was an abundance of 1940's inspired menswear suiting this season. Inspired by the traditional styling of the double breasted jacket, tailored trousers with a nod to the iconic Anzac trouser with pleating to the waists and turn ups. The styling is brought to the modern day by styling with a loafer and a graphic tee.

Oversized and Upscaled

A key trend coming to the forefront of the menswear catwalks is the oversized suiting styles. With longer lined jackets worn with wide legged trousers, giving a more relaxed approach to tailoring.

Vertical Stripes

Good bye breton, hello vertical stripes. From pin stripes to deck chair stripes, even mixing different scales of stripes is a must have for SS18. Vertical stripes work well especially as small pin stripe on tailoring but we love a bold statement stripe as showcased by Songzio.

Checks are a staple go to for suiting all year around. the update on checks brings simple highlights into tartans. Windowpane checks continue for the season and offer a simplistic, clean feel. More intricate designs such as the Prince of Wales check create a more traditional look.
