Suits remain fundamental in any man’s life, but this season designers decided to give a new twist to the classically formal attire. Here are five ways you can keep up with the trend:
Under the expansive concept of city-meets-nature, designer Stefano Pilati of Ermenegildo Zegna offers a new and cool alternative to the three-piece-suit. He switches the usual suit jacket with bombers and parkas that bring down the formality of the look but elevate it in terms of style.
Thanks to a couture-like approach, French brand Valentino rarely fails to take its menswear up a notch. This season, it shows us how to wear camouflage patterns like a grown-up. This sharply tailored camo suit in a dark shade serves as a perfectly executed example.
For his namesake label, Krisvanassche injects some humor into his runway pieces with comic book-inspired emblazonments. However, quirky symbols aside, this look is all about the boxy-on-top, skinny-at-the-bottom silhouette that appears everywhere right now. (Exactly the reason you should give it a try.)
The undisputed king of mixing patterns to great effect, Lanvin has done it again with this ambitious and refreshing approach to suiting. However, there is no magic in their potion, just dedication to the rules (mix big patterns with smaller ones) and the discipline to stay within one color spectrum.
A camel suit is not the easiest thing to pull off, but Louis Vuitton makes it seem effortless. It switches the collared shirt with a simple T-shirt and gets the taper of the jacket just right. Please note that this trick also applies to other monochromatic suits you want to wear for a cocktail party.
