Autumn/Winter 2015 Trend Guide For The Toronto Man
With all the shows now done, the nine major trends for Menswear are Grey, Over Sized, Slouchy Coat, Layering Knits, Squares Patterns and Patches, Supersize Pockets, Green, Shearling, Baggy Trousers and the One Piece Suit. Green was the second was the biggest colour trend for Autumn/Winter 2015 in the biggest shows in London, Milan and Paris. Green beat out orange, pink and blue for the second spot right after grey. These trends will be in your wardrobe within six months.
There was no particular shade of green that was pro-dominate but forest, dark, military and mint green all made major appearances across the three city shows. As shown in the images below the different shades of green in men’s suiting. I just want to say that I am loving the Any Green Goes trend.
I think HD HOMME will take this trend of Any Green Goes and incorporate it into his “custom and ready to wear men’s clothing, specifically evening wear” (TOM*). Like shown in the Berluti and Hardy Amies images. “HD Homme was created as a line that would distinguish itself as the epitome of sophistication — a line that embodies everything a man should be; strong and classy, a man who appreciates standing out from the crowd but who does so with refinement and etiquette” (TOM*).
Another popular trend was the over sized, slouchy long wool coat. This coat can either single or double breasted but for sure will be the popular coat of the season.
I think Pedram Karimi would follow suit and create an oversized, slouchy coat because in viewing his previous collection he created a long, slightly slouchy coat. I think he would also create an amazing oversized coat that would fit into his Autumn/Winter 2015 collection perfectly.
Lastly, the Oversized Pockets is the last trend being shown. For the guys who like to carry everything in their pockets, they will love this trend, the pockets will be the sized of iPad minis. “Not only that, but they’re going to be the focus of your next piece of outerwear, cut from conspicuously contrasting fabrics and sewn on in prominent positions” (GQ Men). I am jealous of the pocket size because I do not always feel like bring a purse and I would love to just carry everything in my pockets. On a side note, the Valentino coat is amazing!
I think that Worth By David C. Wigley will follow suit and create garments with oversized pockets because he creates fantastic jackets and this trend would fit in well with this style.
These are just three of the major nine trends that GQ Men British has said that everyman should master for Autumn/Winter 2015. Hopefully the Toronto man can master them before them ahead of time.
