After a decade of sending well-tailored gents up and down the runway in Milan, Burberry is coming home this summer, bringing their bi-annual menswear show to London.
It’s early in the season, but we’ve already seen green emerge as the go-to surprise hue in runway shows from London to Milan. Building off of last fall’s big loden trend, designers like Burberry Prorsum, Jil Sander, and Ermenegildo Zegna incorporated the color in different shades and ways, from hunter green parkas to jewel-toned tuxes that skew more Bond than Oz. Need more proof that green is the new burgundy of fall 2013? See more designers going green here.
The vibe for Spring 2012: The TOPMAN man for next spring is, as they so eloquently put it, a “rebellious decadent.” He’s that dude in a DB, sucking down champagne at a side street cafe at 3 o’clock on a Tuesday afternoon with two coeds draped on each arm: that guy. And he looks pretty good in brilliant Moroccan-inspired patterns, jacquards, linens, and rich-toned, tasseled kicks. TOPMAN, like we saw in many of the other European men’s shows, favors the fitted, double-breasted jacket over much more relaxed underpinnings as the silhouette for the season, a look of equal parts casual and formal, and pretty much all around bad-ass. Done any skydiving in silk slacks recently? You have? Oh, well then let me introduce you to someone…
