As the Mens AW catwalks draw to a close for 2020, our design team have been busy examining what are set to be the biggest men’s trends to kick off this decade.
When it comes to Fashion Week, events are often a reflection of what’s going on in the wider world, and sustainability, gender fluidity and social justice were all themes on the mens catwalk this year.
As Fashion Week moves onto the Ladies AW catwalks, (starting in New York (6th-13th Feb)) here are some of the biggest trends you need to be aware of from the men’s runway…
When it comes to headwear, bakerboys aren’t going anywhere in 2020. Partly due to the influence of Peaky Blinders, demand for old fashioned style flat caps is still booming. Look out for flat caps and bakerboys in winter check fabrics as featured on the Dolce & Gabbana runway. Berets are also set to be key for AW20 in lots of different fabrications.
Short pile furs, borg and leather are all key for AW20 along with the more traditional knits and cords. Statement vinyl pieces were also prominent on the London catwalks, featured by designers including Ahluwalia.
Key prints to look out for in AW20 include Fairisle, stripes and winter checks. We’re also expecting colour blocking as seen on No.21 runway in Milan to be big for AW.
Key colours to look out for in AW20 include camels, oranges, yellows along with more striking shades of rich berry and electric cobalt.
Boardmans are constantly on top of the latest trends. Our experienced design team regularly travel to some of the most prominent fashion capitals of the world and invest in valuable market intelligence and trend prediction.
