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: Netting

Spring 2015 RTW

The influence of athletic-type netting for more formal dressing seems to have replaced lace for the 21st century.  Used as an overlay or inserted as revealing panels, these sexy looks were hot on the runway.16_Netting_2 16_Netting

 

Trend: Messaging

Spring 2015 RTW

Designers have been using clothing as a platform to call out there seasonal messages for years. Tops are the perfect billboard to call out your feelings for the year.  This season’s messages steer away from the political and pure branding to more abstract expressions of what is going on in these designer’s minds.
