Spring 08 Menswear Highlights

Well this season has moved slightly away from the techno futurist fabrics of season yore towards more natural fabrics such as cotton & silk. Thats not really important but what is, is the use of colour. Alot, like seriously, more than three designers all commented on artist David Hockney as a primary inspiration for the colours used. What resulted was a wishy washy melange of powdery blues, pinks & dove grey. Silhouettes are slimming thanks to the pioneering efforts of Hedi Slimane but not ultra clingy. A fair whack of ease has been put into shirts, tops & jackets. Fabrics appear thin, crunchy & stiff, almost like paper, particularly at BV & Marni.
Just gorgeous. Standout collections were Bottega Veneta, Lanvin, Jil Sander & Marni.
