Trend Alert: Americana
Americana has been playing a part in men’s fashion ever since the mid-'40s. However, for Spring/Summer 2014, the trend has gone all-out global.
Super-brands including Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent felt the influence at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris. Sneakers were paired with soft tailoring while teddy jackets were layered with skinny jeans. In Milan, Thom Browne’s offering for Moncler Gamme Bleu was a typical flurry of red, white and blue.
On the streets, bold colours, wide stripes and Ivy League prints have proven key. Polo shirts, high tops, varsity jackets and backpacks are your go-to essentials. Masculine and athletic with a relaxed vibe, this is the perfect trend for everyday.
