1) In Neutral Gear
Spring usually brings with it plenty of bright colours, and indeed, we saw plenty of vibrant citrusy shades on the Spring/Summer 2017 runways of brands like Paul Smith and Hermes. Those who like to stand out without looking like neon road signs will be pleased to know that they will be seeing a whole range of neutral, earthy tones like beige and brown next season.
2) All In One
Typically, utility-inspired styles tend to be embraced by the stylish crowd: Think trenchcoats and camouflage prints, both of which have their origins in military gear. The jumpsuit, on the other hand, has not been as readily embraced (perhaps it has to do with the fact that it slightly complicates trips to the bathroom), although brands like Paul Smith, Louis Vuitton and Junya Watanabe continue to suggest new iterations on the one-piece inspired by workers’ boiler suits as well as flight suits.
3) Following suit
As the freelance economy continues to grow and with it, the casualisation of office dress codes, much has been made about the death of the suit. While we still think there’s plenty of life yet in the nicely tailored two-piece, we are also fans of the more relaxed versions of the traditional suit that designers have been proposing. At Salvatore Ferragamo, for instance, this takes the form of a cropped jacket with cropped trousers, done in a jaunty stripe.
