Trends for 2017 – punk, 70s loungewear, northern soul trews
Another month of menswear shows may be just around the corner, but for now we’re turning our attention to three of the strongest SS17 trends served up by fashion’s finest players. 2016 marked 40 years since the most stylish of subcultures, punk, incited anarchy across the globe and this year its legacy lives on in Christopher Shannon's, Dior Homme's and Louis Vuitton’s visions for 2017. Think threadbare jumpers, all-black and patches a-plenty.
Or for a something a little more low-key, try the 70s loungewear trend seen at Cottweiler and Christopher Shannon. Fashion’s latest foray into tracksuit territory has a softer, retro feel that's all about strong graphic shapes and a more muted palette.
Finally, we’ll never give up on trying to get you to trade in your skinnies for a pair of wide-leg trousers, and neither will fashion bigwigs like Givenchy and Dries Van Noten. This time around, their big bellowing bottoms came with an injection of northern soul. Venture into vest territory if you’re brave enough, or update the look with a bomber and shirt à la A$AP Rocky.
