Power colour and loose cuts are key trends from London Fashion Week Men's

Jan 10, 2017

The autumn/winter 2017/18 menswear shows that kicked off on January 6 have given us the season's first potential trends, with oversized cuts, bright colors, military inspiration and nods to the 1990s.

One standout trend from the opening days of London Fashion Week Men's was loose pieces and oversized cuts. Topman Design went particularly big on oversized pieces, inspired by the grunge style of the 1990s. The collection included baggy denim pants with pockets on the sides matched with short jackets, plus large, loose, printed sweaters worn over baggy pants.

Oversized cuts were also spotted at Craig Green, with king-sized padded jackets and pants, and at Astrid Andersen, on certain silhouettes in the label's sportswear collection. JW Anderson even rolled out XXL dimensions to accessories.

Although colour is often more muted in winter collections, bright, bolder-than-ever shades are on the agenda for the new season.

Topman Design brought fluorescent pink, green, orange and yellow to the runway, while Liam Hodges reworked military styles with touches of fluorescent yellow and green. Christopher Shannon used bright, lively shades, while JW Anderson splashed the runway with a mix of vibrant hues, playing with colorful prints in app-inspired motifs. Sibling used red, orange, white and midnight blue in geometric prints.

Note that yellow and green -- particularly Pantone's colour of the year, "Greenery" (PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery) -- could shape up to be the shades of the season. Keep an eye out for the colours on the runways of Milan, Paris and New York.
