Which trends should dapper gents be looking out for for Spring Summer 19?
To start with menfolk are embracing their feminine side with gender blender pieces. Typically, floral prints are being embraced by boys this season, with Dior, Versace and Valentino all offering a touch of flower power.
For the well-dressed fellows looking to give their sartorial style a more relaxed summer spin, try wearing suits, (double breasted if your physique allows), without a shirt for a surprisingly elegant, yet still laid-back alternative.
This hot summer look was channelled by brands such as CMMN SWDN, Giorgio Armani, Dries Van Noten and Officine Generale. Hermés showed of a stone-hued suit worn bare chested and for gents unafraid of veering away from normal colours, go shirtless in a baby-blue two-piece by Ermenegildo Zegna. Suits and a T-shirt is also completely cool for those who don’t fancy going through the whole hair or no hair chest scenario?.
And chests aren’t all the men will be baring this summer, with a trend for ultra-short shorts as seen in neoprene at Prada, tie-dye leather at Louis Vuitton and retro print at Dries Van Noten. Brave boys can try bum-skimming shorts from Hermés, Fendi, Cottweiler or Missoni, or sporty elasticated numbers at Off-white.
Colour-wise you can’t go wrong in blue, sage or neon this season. Trench coats are still in , and denim can be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled for on-trend summer looks. As for pockets – the more the better. Think utility pockets like Louis Vuitton, Junya Watanabe, A Cold Wall, Acne Studios, Per Gotesson and Heron Preston.
