Trend: Androgyny

Fall 2015 Menswear

A lot is changing in the identity of menswear.  Gucci has installed a new creative director, Alessandro Michele, to bring a new contemporary look to the brand. That look brought an androgynous styling of blouses for men.  J.W. Anderson started his career by provoking a gender bending question to what menswear might become.  He is now designing his label for luxury powerhouse L.V.M.H.

Across the board we’re seeing what was once considered feminine as part of a new dialog for menswear.  Gender identity is not so black and white.  It can be seen in all colors, shapes, textures, styling, and patterns.  Here’s a view of what some designers are proposing for the Fall 2015 season.

Trend: Fringe

Spring 2015 RTW

Fringe was seen in all types of applications; as tops, skirts, on pants, boots, or just some added detail.  It wasn’t all hippie chic but chic none-the-less.

Trend: Little Black Dress

Spring 2015 RTW

The “little black dress” is more diverse than ever and less shy than the traditionally appointed idea of this essential part of a woman’s wardrobe.
