Already curious about the Fall Winter 2014-15 menswear trends? Well, after attending several shows in Milan during men’s Fashion Week and following London Collections and Paris Fashion Week on NowFashion.com and Style.com, I give you the 5 biggest trends:

Camel!

Bye, bye, burgundy! Camel is the new it-color! From jackets with extravagant details, skinny tailoring… to pea coats, one of the most chic and elegant colors is back in fashion.

Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2014-15

Salvatore Ferragamo Fall Winter 2014-15

Skinny feelings

I’ve never been a fan of the oversized trend, so I’m most happy designers are turning the tide. Though blazers and skinny trousers always steal the show when it comes to tailoring. The Fall Winter 2014-15 catwalks confirm that the skinny trend is here to stay.

Prada Fall Winter 2014-15

Saint Laurent Fall Winter 2014-15

Knitted

Mix and match, embroidered, multi-colored, patterned, oversized, cable knits… anything goes in terms of knitwear next Fall Winter season.

Fendi Fall Winter 2014-15

Kris Van Assche Fall Winter 2014-15

Furs

Fur, fur, FUR!!! No more to say.

Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2014-15

Costume National Fall Winter 2014-15

Check mate

The never-ending love affair between checks and fashion. Tweed, tartan, Prince of Wales… continue to feature in everything from tailoring to outerwear and of course the odd kilt.

‘Tailored constructions melted with fragments of the Miao ethnicity. Essential looks with slight touches of eccentricity. Minimal, edgy chic, rock ‘n roll. For real women.’ That’s how Ennio Capasa, designer of Costume National, describes his Fall Winter 2013-14 collection. And I must say, I couldn’t say it any better. Strong looks, ideal for the power woman which – let’s face it, ladies – you’re all by heart. Black, midnight blue, white and touches of burgundy, no, mister Capasa wasn’t in a colorful mood. But who needs color if you wear a sharp tailored outfit? One of Ennio’s best collections for Costume National, blessed I could see it live in Paris!
