The four-time Formula One winner has gone for the red tartan blazer and trousers but then continued to go for the unorthodox route by pairing the blazer with a black turtleneck, and a flashy necklace. He finished the look off with leathers boots and a handkerchief that matches Versace’s dress.

Lewis Hamilton certainly needed to make an impression at such a prestigious red-carpet event, given that he had one of the leading fashion designers in the world on his arm. While the 32-year-old has admirers aplenty, he opted to escort none other than Donatella Versace,62.

Tartan isn’t a new look to be introduced to the menswear fashion world as its been around since the 17th century before making a few comeback stints, mostly in the seventies. Now in the present-day tartan has reached a new look. Tartan now has a bolder approach to the classic look which can then be backed up by attention catching accessories.

This look certainly can catch on, considering how bold and daring a statement piece like this can make, but only time will tell if this look can find its way into 2018 and dominate the year.

New trends for mens fashion during Autumn-Winter seasons

It’s starting to seem more and more noticeable that the 1970’s has been heavily influencing the men’s fashion scene. Even with warmer temperature than usual, fashion labels have been filling the racks with many seasonal offerings any man can appreciate. With more trends being noticeable I have created a

To start the list of new trends off, the somewhat dull color brown has been making a huge comeback. With Gucci, who arguably started the 70’s trend, having used colors like brown and camel in the past few seasons, now has other big Italian labels hopping on the brown bus. Brands like, Ermenegildo Zegna, Canali and Brunello Cucinelli, have all been smashing the style too.

Up next, the color orange has recently been popping up down many catwalks. Orange has been a more provocative trend this season, being featured amongst the more youthful labels such as Dior Homme, Etro, Marni, and Ports 1961. The fashion inclined youngsters could be seen wearing orange jackets, trousers, or even the full out all orange look. For the most part, though, the orange touch will be displayed with tees and sweaters.

Recently, a move away from the skinny look, which took over much of the 2000’s has pushed its way through, starting with tops and jackets and not pants or trousers. The boxy jackets were storming through Paris, London, New York, and Milan. Brands like Balenciaga, H&M, Paul Smith, and COS, have all contributed to kick-starting this trend. Balenciaga’s Autumn-Winter show had the biggest take of the trend with square shoulders, which will most likely be the biggest influence when the trend goes full mainstream. COS has the most affordable collection for this trend.

It’s beginning to be loose all over with, quite literally, all the major labels sending models down the runways with flowing bottoms. mid-rise and high-rise bottoms have been on the rise this season. The advantage of being looser means the comfort level goes through the roof. Zegna, E. Tautz, Marni, COS, Topman, and Zara, all have their own styles of the loose trousers.

Incoming, Corduroy is making a major comeback. Corduroy was a big part of the catwalk this season. With most labels incorporating corduroy jackets, or corduroy trousers, luxury brands such as Prada and Officine Generale have turned all their attention to having all-corduroy suits. The biggest noticeable part of this trend was the different colors brands were offering. Giorgio Armani, Hermes and more, were offering burgundy, blue, grey and other sophisticated colors to add a more ordinary workwear feel.

Thom Browne Spring 2015 Inspired by Tron

Attending a Thom Browne show is an experience. It is not just the clothes that attendees admire as they strut down the runway, but it is the story that Browne puts behind each show he organizes. For his spring 2015 menswear collection, Browne was inspired by the movie ‘Tron.’

In Paris, 20 models donning plastic masks stood in rows of five. They were wearing gray tailored suits as they silently waited for the show to commence. As the show began, two guardsmen marched out in wool-suit armor. According to the New York Times, after the guards followed the models, who were split into two groups, those wearing puffy jackets and trousers, and those strutting sharper, spikier shoulders.

Browne staged a competition. The competition was between man and machine.

Browne commented, “It would be too easy for us to use Star Wars.”

Every show that Thom Browne puts on is just that. A show. Besides the beautifully crafted suits, there is always a deeper message that Browne hopes the audience takes with them. Many of the shows give off a haunting vibe, as if the set is something that you could imagine in your worst nightmare.

Although Browne has said, “they all lose in the end. That makes man a two-time loser.”
