Trends to Look out for in 2017

January 5, 2017

All-in-ones

From fierce fighter pilot to laid-back mechanical chic, designers are showing no signs of expelling the utilitarian all-in-one from their menswear wardrobes any time soon. A bold fashion statement that steals the style of workmen in their warehouses, we predict a strong Spring/Summer 2017 trend for jumpsuits and boilersuits.

Rainwear

With a rather damp summer so far in Paris, we welcomed rainwear on the runway. A SS17 essential, sheer at Comme des Garçons Homme Plus, monogrammed at Louis Vuitton and classic yellow at Gucci.

Jackets round the waist

A subtle styling detail spotted at Ami and Sacai or with a fresh conceptual twist at J.W. Anderson, the jacket tied around the waist was a surefire sign that cool nonchalance is making a comeback this season. Think Kurt Cobain's signature shirt checkered shirt slung low around his waist.

The windbreaker

As for mid-season jackets at Prada, Versace and Juun. J, the windbreaker and the parka came in all chromatic shapes and sizes: light parachute-style at Juun. J, printed and tied around the waist at Prada, and hooded at Versace.

Super short shorts

Not seen since the 1970s, could the ultra short be about to make a comeback for next summer? The jury is out, but while we’re waiting on a fashion consensus, it’s worth noting that we saw pyjama-style versions at Fendi and Comme des Garçons Plus and super short retro sportwear at Gosha Rubchinskiy.

Yellow

It’s the color surprise of the season. Yellow accents or even bolder color-blocking lit up the summer catwalks at Hermès, Gucci and Alexander McQueen.

Cream

Neutral linen tones and sandy shades were a dominant element of the tailored looks at Dries Van Noten and Alexander McQueen and the casual military-inspired pieces at Valentino. A quintessential look for summer.
