Upcoming! Men's Fashion Trends for Fall 2016!

Hey world! Fall 2016 is approaching and it is considerably important to be aware and sound of the fashion and fashion trends it will bring along. This time around, I personally feel like ample trends I happen to be a fan of, like radiantly chrome and noble military wear, are highlighted this season.

Ten trends to follow and get in touch with this season are checkered patterns, bomber jackets, pink colors, chrome or metallic, shearling pieces, the western theme, tracksuits, puffed-up pieces, knitwear, and military wear.

  • Plaid

Sure, there are stripes and argyles, but plaid is a trend this season. In checks and tartans, the motifs is infinitely universal, shared across oceans in concepts of menswear. Raf Simmons and Dior Homme featured these in some long coats.

  • Bomber Jackets

Varieties of the bomber jacket hit catwalks and are also hitting the sidewalks! Sources like Vogue report that it was originated by Kanye West with Yeezy; this flight jacket is featured by all levels of fashion at accessible to luxurious prices. Topman, ZARA and Diesel Black Gold (three of my favorite places to shop, hands down) have featured these. ZARA even featured this in a leopard print!

  • Pink

Remember that phrase, “though guys wear pink”? While pink may be regarded as predominantly a girls’ color today, and blue for boys, the color pink percolates as a trend into the impactful realm of men’s fashion. These are pinks that vary in color and intensity. Faint pinks to vibrant hot pinks are featured. They are able to be seen (and bought) in Gucci (in cardigans) and in Off-White’s collection.

  • Chrome and Metallic

This trend can be regarded as exclusive to an extent in terms of when and where it is seen. It will be cached and later seen on the common man. No matter how you use or wear this trend, it will certainly needed to be justified by accompanying modulating piece, possibly from the winter.

  • Shearling

Having lurked around, shearling now gets a promotion from the peripheral to a serious item in men’s use of fashion. Featured in frugal representations of color and opulently many uses in terms of pieces, it is featured by many designers and brands. One of them is Coach.

  • Western

This is not Western in the sense of American or European. It is, however, a reflection of U.S. Geography. You know what comes to your mind when you strictly think West or Midwestern—it is cowboys and Texas possibly. This mean calf-skin clothing along with themed prints, overalls, and fringes. It is featured in Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Dolce and Gabbana, even including outerwear!

  • Tracksuits

You may be familiar with the word, “athleisure.” This season’s sport-suits are evoking a nostalgia.  Traveling back in time, this trend is consistent with a sporadic, multidirectional timeline of fashion. It is featured boldly, sometimes in darker color to more vibrant color, and in reds and blues. It even occurs in patterns! It is featured by Burberry, Gucci, and Kenzo.

  • Puff Pieces

The puff jacket got a sizable gain in a few ways this season! From invitingly glossy shades to  eye-catching yellows and subtle but dark purples, thus trend featured a striking yellow for Coach 1941 and an urban, mahogany-ish Burberry coat.

  • Knitwear

These pieces give off a look of having been manually, meticulously made. Rich with varying and abundant color, these astutely approached piece feature patterns, stripes, and are decorated. They are featured by Acne Studios and Ermenegildo Zegna.

  • Military Wear

Cultured military wear graced menswear shows. Always charming and, this time around, noticeably regal, the trend was mainly featured on coats such as by Balmain and Coach 1941 in navy blues.

Chanel Parks Never Expected to Fit into the Fashion World

Fashion features ample things and ideals. It challenges and incites ontological and philosophical questions. It encourages insightful thinking and inquisitive pondering. It is easily a very cyclical phenomenon and so enigmatic, as it is composed of binary elements, such as inclusive versus exclusive, skinny or slender versus plus-sized, subtle or simple versus extravagant and showy, minimal versus baroque, and mainstreams versus hipster.

Fashion is not only an expansive, multidimensional field of aesthetics and artistic beauty blended with social and cultural and philosophical elements, but it serves social, psychological, and cultural functions, like iconisation through models, photography, and themes and consumerism through branding and commodification. It establishes and reinforces codes and stylistic conventions.

According to Mauss and Bordieu, “how we clothe the body” is an active process or a technical means to create or represent a bodily self. The body is naturally trained to inhibit and internalize postures, movement, and gestures. Bodies are worn through technologies of movement, gesture, projection, and restraint.

You can have personified fashion. You can find yourself through it, no matter what you image is. Chanel Park, who never expected to fit into her fashion world’s realms, reflects she did not fit the image. She, however, is in the fashion world and she finds depth and diversity in it.

Models like Marquita Ping, Sabina Karlsson, and Georgia Pratt, walked on the runway that featured a notable amount of plus-size models, according to Parks. She reflected that gender identity has been played with but that racial and cultural identity and diversity was more prominent and dealt with this year at New York Fashion Week.

Seeing fashion is everywhere; it is unavoidable. Relating to it is made easier by diversity, depth, and breadth and meaning becomes more evident.

His absence was prominently felt at NYFW this time, since he was not there to do his job. The touching tribute to the late and legendary photographer was enacted by 75 photographers. On the morning of Friday, Sept 9, 2016, the blue smocks were distributed and the tribute took place.

The visionary lensman’s work will also be on display, running from Sept 21 to Sept 25, according to Feitelberg’s article at WWD. It will take place at the fifth yearly Photoville event, at the Brooklyn Bridge Plaza.

It is important to appreciate Cunningham’s work, especially in the fashion world and how he conducted his photography. His strive to highlight the main issues in fashion in commendable. He illuminated that individuality and self-expression are both immensely important in fashion.

Of course, being a journalist in ways as a photographer, Cunningham proved that photography is indeed vital to the documentation of fashion—the field it thrives in and its life-cycle. Timeless fashion, past and present was a theme evident is his work, creating a timeline in his 40 years in the field!

The Editorials this Season and How they are Presented!

Epitomizing an enigmatic vibe, the genuineness of using actual models and the idea of representing fashion features through undisclosed imagery and photography resonates an imaginative approach to editorial trends this season.

That is why journalism is so intriguing and unrestrained a field, it is where you can be infinitely playful and innovative. Irony is embedded as faceless and lifeless accentuates life and authenticity!

The impossible is envisioned as possible in these editorials, whether it is with make up or anything else you might wear. Accessible and communicative, the editorials showcase whimsical, ingenious, and envision the impractical as real and doable, thus contributing a characteristic newness to journalism, fashion, and art.

The editorials feature gothic streetwear and retro streetwear along with obscured, blurry portraits. The editorials additionally play with age, showcasing grandparents as models. This use of regular people and actual models adds a validating feel.

With dramatic beauty editorials to be complemented by intangible, unfeasible make up schemes, the editorials this month shine through with engaging fan photography included. They are notably expressive, with rocker style showcased along with retro and candid sportswear. Collages and active suburban wear showcased in the editorials, is added to by the abstract concepts complemented by body paint.

Some models are personified in a chameleon-like adaptability, where they encase a range of looks. Metamorphic, forthright, and open-ended, these concepts are open to interpretation, and not only that, but are also susceptible to insight and discussion. Paradigmatic shifts in fashioning of fashion, itself, art, and journalism, or other ways of communicating, can be subtle and go unnoticed, but they can bring excitement, novelty, and newness.
