Menswear SS17: Pick Your Fashion Destination

Travel: almost every designer made reference to it this season across all of the fashion capitals; it was the big overarching theme. Hardly surprising, really, that everyone is seeking solace somewhere else right now. Escape is the ultimate antidote when real life brings you down and all you need to do is step inside your wardrobe to have that rectified. So where did everyone go? And who should you shop with to pack for said fashion destination?

 


The Louis Vuitton menswear Spring/Summer 2017 show, Paris, by Guillaume Roujas for NOWFASHION

 

If you’ve a taste for adventure: join Louis Vuitton – the luxury label headed to Africa but took with it a touch of punk London. What to pack? Savannah shades, fluffy jumpers, giraffe-print shirts, some tight trousers, and a great bag.

 


The Balmain menswear Spring/Summer 2017 show, Paris, by Guillaume Roujas for NOWFASHION

 

Oh, it’s something by the sea you say you’re after? Miles of beach and beautiful skies? Let Balmain be your guide with its precious gems and jewel shades, lounge-y silhouettes, and sense of ease. What to pack? A trophy jacket, draped shapes, and lots and lots of denim.

 


The Prada menswear Spring/Summer 2017 show, Milan, by Régis Colin-Berthelier for NOWFASHION

 

What about backpacking? Is that something you’d ever consider? Prada showed us just how appealing it could be with layered up neon techno looks. What to pack? Everything! Attach it all to your back to get the silhouette just right!

 


The Gucci menswear Spring/Summer 2017 show, Milan, by Régis Colin-Berthelier for NOWFASHION

 

Ah, so it’s actually more of a staycation you’re planning but you’re going to imagine you’re going somewhere wonderful? Gucci is what you’re after! The show notes referenced the idea of travel as layers of reality and different existences. The translation for which is to dress up in its hallmark magpie style and let that transport you. Because if you dress the part, your imagination can take you anywhere.

 

The Moncler menswear Spring/Summer 2017 show, Milan, by Gio Staiano for NOWFASHION

 

What about somewhere outdoorsy? Moncler and Acne Studios had that covered with their all-weather looks – sleeping-bag layers for the former and a multitude of raincoats and jackets for the latter. Remember there’s no such thing as bad weather, just an ill-prepared wardrobe.

 


The Issey Miyake menswear Spring/Summer 2017 show, Paris, by Régis Colin-Berthelier for NOWFASHION

 

Or were you leaning more towards somewhere hot again? May we suggest Issey Miyake, which too takes its influences from India for a relaxed elegance and natural textiles.

 

The Giorgio Armani menswear Spring/Summer 2017 show, Milan, by Guillaume Roujas for NOWFASHION

 

Still haven’t come up with the ideal spot yet? Then be sure to look through the collections of Etudes, Armani, 22/4, Paul Smith, Lemaire (as well as so many more) who took and ran (or maybe that should be hopped on a train, boarded a plane) with the idea of travel for Spring/Summer 2017.
