Sometimes it doesn’t take innovation, but rather modification to alter a perspective. Why start from the beginning to fix something that isn’t quite broken? This season modification comes in the form of color. In altering the hues of impeccably tailored suits, designers are able to brighten their collections for the spring months.
Rich teal and cobalt blue captured our attention in an overwhelming amount of collections, but the trend extends farther than that. Encompassing other seasonal trends like pastels, colored suits may perhaps be the most important menswear trend of the spring.
Continuing with the momentum of the menswear industry, this season’s suits are familiar in their constructs. Taking on the appearance of a slimmed-down, modern 1960’s, suits this season have several distinct components; the first being the lapel. Narrower than traditional suits, with the widest gorge of two inches, lapels this spring come notched more often than not with a high gorge centered above the clavicle. Double-breasted or single-breasted, one-button jackets run the gamut, accompanied by slim slacks. This spring, history is imbued in a range of hues; moderated by modern tailoring, cool colored suits will have you singing praises of the sixties.
