On June 28th the Parisian catwalks were illuminated by a cacophony of colours and patterns during the 2015/16 Menswear Fashion Week in Paris. As many high street styles are inspired by elements of each design, we thought that we would look at the gear we already have in stock and match them up with the essence of the catwalk designs. We are stressing the words essence and inspired because to be quite honest you would have to be a brave fellah to walk down Romford High Street in some of the get ups the models were wearing. We are going to take one look de-construct it and and then show examples of Standout.co.uk clothing that can be worn as everyday fashion.
The Catwalk photograph we have used has been sourced from the on-line Guardian article, ‘10 Key Collections in Pictures’, dated June 30th.
Our featured look incorporates practicality and fun by layering a check shirt and blazer under a trench coat. To make the look summery; patterned shorts, socks and white sandals are added. Obviously the designer must have only had a small window of opportunity to showcase their design and put all of their ideas together in one outfit. We have scoured our vast collection of designer threads to make suggestions of the pieces that make up elements of the look – obviously you are not expected to wear them all at once and because it is summer we don’t have any scarves in stock.
The gear featured in the image are; G-Star Valdo James Trench Coat, Scotch & Soda Knitted Clean Blazer, Gant Wilmington Twill Check Shirt, Farah Vintage Hobart Leaf Print Shorts, Lacoste Fraisier Flip Flops and Bjorn Borg Membrane Socks.
