Curious about the Fall Winter 2015-16 menswear trends? Well, actually there is nothing to be curious about. The trend is that there are any new trends. A lot is the same as previous Winter seasons – with some nuances, of course! Here are the 5 biggest ones:

50 shades of grey

Black may be the all time favourite color during Winter, grey is slowly taking the leading role. Try the head-to-toe grey look and dare to combine different shades.

Calvin Klein Collection Fall Winter 2015-16

Canali Fall Winter 2015-16

CAMEL

Probably one of the most chic colors there are. Camel continues to be the trendiest of them all. All things camel, from coats to suits.

John Varvatos Fall Winter 2015-16

Coats!

Coats are a key piece in every men’s Winter garderobe. But next Fall Winter season coats will never be so important. Only 1 rule you have to keep in mind: go oversized, taillé est passé!

Dior Homme Fall Winter 2015-16

Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2015-16

Furs

Bold, patterned, oversized… fur – even faux! – was never so extravagant! Fur is all you need to spice up your Winter outfits.

Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2015-16

Fendi Fall Winter 2015-16

Statement sweaters

Gone are the boring sweater days. Nowadays, sweaters are comfy and fun, ánd they are making a statement.

When I look back at my Milan Fashion Week carreer, I can say that I barely missed an Etro show in the past 5 years. Kean Etro always goes back to the roots, but gives his collections a modern twist that makes Etro an up-to-date and trendy brand. For the next Fall Winter season he created a world of illusions. Pattern rises and falls, loosing its borders and confines while prints appear and disappear like an illusionist trick – think trompe-l’oeil and ombré effects. Plaids and Etro’s signature paisleys, checks and tweeds, meeting up in an alchemy only Kean knows how to do, with the low scrotch pants as the ultimate eyecatcher. This collection is all about the color brown, spiced up with hints of camel, burgundy and mustard, toned down for Winter.

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.

Surprisingly Vivienne Westwood shied away from her roots and did not hold a military tattoo as we’d come to expect from her infamous signature style. Black watch tartans and other plaids were left to Scervino, Etro and Corneliani this time, who went wild on them.

As if wandering through an eclectic art gallery, the house of Westwood chose to bring a whole mix of silhouettes in the parabolic long hall of the Triennale. Thirty-three outfits between which a connection was truly hard to find. Cartoonesque models showed an amalgam of kitty cat teeshirts, candy stripes, assymetrical knits, flashy bombers and baggy jumpers which were alternated with more stylish suits that all marched a few steps forward on good old sartorial lane. Closures off centre, bashful patterns, waiter-vest short, contrasting insets, big lapels on waistcoats overlapping the jackets… it was all there. Creative at heart, truly beautiful at times, flashy yes, but rather incoherent to say the least. Westwood fans will love it though and there is really something for everyone in it, as the grand picture of the collection is very wearable indeed. A different Westwood.

From the shores of Southern Italy to the plains of Australia, Etro took us on an epic journey of signature style checks and paisleys richly tailored for the classic fashionisto’s needs. Up beat Scottish pipes followed by gripping didgeridoos set the mood for elegant combinations as we’ve grown to expect from this family where creativity flows in every member’s vains. Not afraid to break with any design rule, bearded balding men were effortlessly dressed and set to walk the stage alongside cleancut younger models with many of life’s lessons yet to learn. Clearly Etro targets a wide range of men offering bolder combinations as well as toned down versions of their often flamboyant style. The family prides itself on its beautiful and bold execution of craftsmanship, as shown to the international audience as they all took a trip down the runway in suits strikingly decorated with measure tapes, needles and pins. Exciting still!

Let’s start my Milan Fashion Week reviews with Etro, one of the shows I enjoyed the most. Where other designers decided to deliver sober collections, Kean Etro did the complete opposite by adding lots of color, from pumpkin orange to midnight blue. A color explosion toned down for Winter. It’s always nice to see those kinds of collections. It gives you instant happiness.

Kean looked to barbarians and Celtic symbology to create a multicultural mix of menswear ideas. Jersey knits play the main role, appearing throughout the entire collection and ending up looking like tartan or corduroy, even in suits. Lots of patchwork, velvet, fur, jewelry… no, an Etro collection is never boring! The look is elongated and agile: slim at the bottom under egg-shaped tops with dropped shoulders and generous volumes. Just the way I like it!
