Is it just me or are we seeing a crossover of trends between the worlds of guy and girl’s fashion?
An example are the India-inspired outfits at Armani Privé Spring/Summer
2007 that found their way into Rei Kawakubo’s menswear collection for
Autumn/Winter via style icon Andrew Logan (as pointed out by Brandish’s
own Tim Hunter).For this season, we saw velvet shirts at Dries Van
Noten not unlike those at Christopher Kane Spring/Summer 2008 and the
flowers on lapels at the Lanvin Menswear show could be seen as an
incredibly subtle interpretation of last season’s (female) trend for
Now we are seeing Spring/Summer `08’s Ombre trend slowly finding its way onto our backs (yes, literally.) This cashmere cardigan from Angelos Frentzos, the Greek designer of both men’s and women’s fashion, sees the trend made masculine with calm colours and a non-fussy print. Wear it with dark jeans, a block colour t-shirt and an over-the-shoulder bag for an modern look.
Right – womenswear Ombre items from Catwalk Queen.
