Summer Collection 2016
Menswear waits for no one. From technical tailoring to trousers that won’t lower your sperm count, this is your first look at the trends we expect to hit hard for spring/summer 2016. On Safari Menswear has always been enamored of utility. But while that’s usually manifest in military-inspired overcoats and camo prints, designers changed tack for SS16, looking to the dawn of aviation and early 20th century safaris for inspiration. At Dunhill, it was in the scorched earth-colored brown wide brim fedora, open-necked shirt and lightweight scarf, while Belstaff went full throttle with a desert combat collection of field jackets, tank suits and multi-pocketed gilts inspired by the Desert Rats, the British forces based in North Africa during WWII. Tank suits, we know, aren’t for everyone, so if you’re giving this trend a whirl steer towards its more wearable aspects: khaki field jackets, chinos and bush shirts (short sleeves and two chest pockets) will all work well for an urban expedition.
