Trend: Men’s Bomber Jacket

Fall 2015 Menswear

The biggest trend in men’s jackets witnessed on the Fall 2015 runways was “The Bomber”.  The bomber or flight jacket has been around for almost one hundred years.  This military inspired piece of wardrobe continues to be reinterpreted in many shapes and fabrics.  The knit cuffs and waistbands are a common thread but the silhouette can be seen short to long.  Fabrications are the real differentiator here.  Bombers were seen in fur, satin, knit, camouflage, plaids, leather, velvet, pinstripes, quilted, prints, metallic, sequins, nylon, and wool.  It’s a classic mens wardrobe piece that these thirty-six designers continue to design for the 21st century.

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: 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.

Trend: The Futurist

Spring 2015 RTW

The future is a mixed bag.  What we observe as tomorrow’s fashion can be seen as back-to-the-future, deconstructed, techno-fabricated, and shiny.  The utopian ideal of a future perfect has gotten more diverse than ever.
