"Fashion at the speed of life"


We were looking through the men’s fashion week in Milan, Paris and London and we had realized how much the men fall 2014 fashion resembled women’s fall 2013 fashion. Is it just us? Here are some female trends from fall 2013 that popped up for men fall 2014:

The color  palette

We saw that the above color palette of 2013 in men trend fall 2014.  In Paris, blue hue appeared at Dries Van Noten. In Milan, Rick Owen and dolce & gabbana both sported black and white. We saw camel and other browns at Etro. Vivienne Westwood created white shirts for her men collection.

Plaid and herribone

No surprise that the men fabric trend for women fall 2013, resurfaced in men fashion fall 2014. We saw both prints show up at Andrea Pompillio, and Etro.  Some bloggers stated it was a return to 1960’s but we saw similarities from the men fabrics trend in 2013 including seeing the look in coats, jackets and pants.

Graphic sweaters

The prints were more subdued and some had a religious feel but the idea was the same, update the sweater with graphic details. Dolce & Gabbana used byzantine style prints in Milan and we saw printed sweaters throughout London Fashion Week.

So why are we seeing the last season of women’s trends cropping up in this season’s of men fashion? The answer may be that most designers create both men and women fashion hence are influenced by their own collections. Another reason is the limited time to create men line which has to be completed 3 months before women so it may be just easier to draw from women’s last season trends which heavily drew on male fashion. What are your thoughts?
