Fashion: The spring/summer 2014 menswear collections relive the days of rave


The Haçienda rides again - albeit, in a fresh-from-the-box form.

The spring/summer 2014 menswear collections, with their neon brights, pop graphics and abbreviated shapes, owe a debt to Peter Saville's Factory and the hyped-up Postmodern interiors of legendary eighties Madchester super-club The Haçienda.

Raf Simons offered an ode to Belgium’s early-nineties Gabba scene in an art gallery in Paris, while Christopher Shannon relived sweat-soaked club culture at the turn of the century in latex-clad lads with glitter-smeared hair-dos.

Add Craig Green’s psychedelic tie-dye and the acieeed brights of Ferragamo, Vuitton et al, and the future’s looking bright.

Rave safe.
