Womenswear division is currently celebrating the arrival of Spring 2015 collections on the runways of four major Fashion Weeks across four major cities of New York, Paris, Milan and London. Although menswear collections have actually been revealed earlier, there designers who decided to show their new Spring 2015 line a little bit later than the rest. J.Crew for instance, has just revealed its collection in New York last week as the label missed the schedule of Menswear Fashion Weeks a few months back. The collection is absolutely gorgeous so we don’t mind at all that we had to wait a little bit longer.
Aside from J.Crew, other labels like Ralph Lauren, Patrick Ervell, Billy Reid, Duckie Brown and Tomas Maier have also just revealed their Spring 2015 menswear collection. Are these collections worth the wait? Absolutely! Here are our favorite looks from the collections:
J.Crew menswear collection for spring next year is all about the imperfection as mentioned by its menswear director Frank Muytjens. The direction is very clear— from the mismatched layering to broken-in feel of each pieces. Pay attention to the bucket hat used throughout the collection as it is set to become the must-have item of the season.
Patrick Ervell tries to find the meeting point of fashion and furniture design curve with the latest collection from his label. Crafted from borrowed interior design material like polyurethane; vinyl and racing leather, Ervell’s creations came out sporty and architectural at the same time.
If suit-and-tie is not really your thing, Tomas Maier collection is the one to look forward to. Each casual piece is designed for all different occasions from Sunday brunch to the weekend and long vacation. Nothing is over the top. Maier has ultimately succeeded in designing clothes that make casual dressing fun again for men.
Ralph Lauren clothes are usually preppy and the label is well-known for its sharp suits as well as sporty clothes inspired by rugby and polo. There are slight changes for this season’s collection with inclusion of more fun look as evidenced from the pairing of floral pants and patterned sweater as well as the basic streamlined look shown above.
The nineties is cool again on the runway of Duckie Brown. The MC Hammer pants are done differently in modern fabrics and waist brought up several inches. The metallic sweaters are unusually cool alongside the heavy use plaids throughout the collection.
Billy Reid acknowledged its customers who have been cross-shopping. Not to be confused with cross-dressing, cross-shoppers are people who buy items from the opposite sex’s department based on what really fits their personal style. That is why Reid, decided to work on both menswear and womenswear collection simultaneously this season. The result is a collection printed pants, white blouse-shirt and oversized sweat shirts that are made for men but would look equally good on women.
Now, are we all excited about spring next year? Yes, but we still have to wait a little longer until fall is officially over.
