Fall/Winter trends: menswear staples play with proportions
Tuesday 30 August 2011
This season's blazers are either oversized or very slim, tuxedo jackets get re-interpreted, pants are baggy or skinny and cropped - update menswear classics for a modern feel this fall.
Look to designers such as Issey Miyake for a study on new shapes for the coming season: the Japanese label managed to combine oversized blazers and man skirts in outfits that read as sharp.
Other brands, including Salvatore Ferragamo and Costume National Homme, did the opposite to attain a fresh look and cropped their jackets or blazers for a tighter, more body-conscious silhouette, while Alexander McQueen showed cropped tuxedo jackets. But if you're looking to invest in just one new piece this season, make it a light leather jacket, as seen at Gucci, Versace, and Emporio Armani.
Jackets are not the only things that can be cropped for an updated look this fall, however: the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Vivienne Westwood, and Kenzo did the same with this season's pants, or just rolled them up for a similar effect.
