Milan Men’s Fashion Week: Trends for SS15
Last month we saw the coming season’s hottest trends unfold at Men’s Fashion Week in Milan, and whilst some trends we’ve seen before in current season, there are other styles which have made a spectacular debut or long-awaited comeback. Colors such as reds and nudes are set to be huge in SS15, making a bold statement for many collections which have in the past shied away from color. Nude will also be an interesting fashion trial as it’s always been a strong contender, but in women’s fashion only. Here are more SS15 trends, as seen at Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
Denim and Sports Luxe
There’s an element of going back to the bare basics with denim and loungewear-inspired trends. Tom Ford showed us a smarter and slicker way of wearing the casual denim we’ve always known whilst Bottega Veneta embraced slouchy fits, baggy shorts and unbuttoned numbers which gives sports luxe a great name. Think slouchy and comfortable – but never scruffy. Preview Bottega Veneta SS15 on the Dazed blog.
Vintage Accessories and Jewelry
Vintage look accessories have made a comeback and this has been evident in both men’s jewelry and men’s watches. Not only has this been forecasted from Fashion Weeks from around the world including New York, Paris, London and Milan, but the world-famous Baselworld Watch Convention has revealed many vintage inspired pieces from Rolex, Patek Philippe, Hublot and Panerai.

Stripes and Stripes
Forget spots and stripes. In 2015, it’s all about stripes, stripes and even more stripes. This nautical-evolved look is also hot property in women’s fashion for next season, and according to Men’s MFW, the boys are following suit. This trend will incorporate all different kinds of stripes including the Hairline Stripe, the Multi-colored Stripe, the Bengal Stripe, and the Awning Stripe.

Is it time to say goodbye to the trusty hi-tops? It seems that lo-fi trainers are back in the game and the classic white pump is once again sitting back on its shrine. Think clean and simple design and an ‘unbranded’ no-logo look. Grandpa-inspired sandals (avec socks) is also a hot look for next year.
Dolce and Gabbana stunned its runway audience with a 30 strong team of suited and booted males models sporting flamboyant flamenco red from head to toe. A more accessible way of styling this trend is to add red accents to your outfit and using red accessories to bring a monochromatic outfit to life.
