Pitti 87 ended with a record number of participations, and for winter 2015 fashion trends revolutionize the contemporary men wardrobe, inventing fresh styles, boldly mixing colours and trends, almost exaggerating by adding creative details, vintage notes, fantasy or underground harmonies.
Next year, men’s fashion will mainly turn to creative urban style. Shirts are the real protagonists of the Pitti event, versatile items designed for several purposes, suitable both for office and leisure. Men’s shirts fabrics evoke the patterns already anticipated on latest summer; as stripes, gingham, geometric design, high quality fabrics mixed with hi-tech accessories. New trends to follow: flannel shirts paired with classic five-pocket denim, military-inspired or ethnic jackets, enriched with printed leather details, fur, nylon, for a final dandy/underground effect.
Winter 2015 men are daring, are able to exaggerate but always with class, mixing luxury and unconventionality, charm and rebellious spirit. They also are innovative in style, choosing technological materials and basic, almost androgynous shapes: microfiber parka and reversible jackets, waterproof cottons, rubber fabrics, for an essential and unconventional look, even with unexpected combinations of textures. Pleasure of dressing up and personal take care are coming back: beautiful quality garments, hand-tailored as in the past with valuable raw materials, joining up tradition and innovation, elegance and comfort.
A slightly subversive nonconformity is also present in details: cuffed trousers which show fancy and even odd socks, asymmetrical zip, metallic effects, special retro-inspired elements combined with fine details. Eye-catching colours for next Autumn-Winter 2015/16 trends: yellow, orange and red will be next fashion mainstay hues. Feisty and rebellious yet elegant, while never giving way to conventions. Third millennium men express with their outfit a strong character, sure of their charm, and especially oriented to future, innovation and free interpretation of trends.
