In 2017, the sporty accents seen on the streets will be joining you at the beach. Think paddle-boarding, parasailing and jet skiing, and equip yourself with appropriate gear. Pair athletic jackets with super-short shorts in the style of Topman Design and Christopher Shannon; wear lightweight sheer shirts with trainers like Sibling; or get ready to go surfing in vibrant board shorts like Katie Eary.
Bright and bold red dominated the footwear seen on models at London, confirming that this is the colour to stock up on for next year. Red suede, canvas and leather took the shape of derbies, trainers, sandals and loafers, as seen in the shows of Miharayasuhiro, Sibling, Casely-Hayford and Coach.
After jog pants, here’s another track gear that’s getting out of the field. Old-school zipped-up jogging jackets will soon no longer be pieces you wear for your morning jog. Team these lightweight layers with jeans, chinos, joggers and shorts for an updated off-duty look for everywhere from a theatre to a bar. Take a cue from Christopher Shannon, Topman Design, Cottweiler and Gosha Rubchinskiy.
After plaid and gingham, classic checks returns next season in yet another version. The extensive use of windowpane highlights the move towards simpler, cleaner patterns. Pick from a laid-back co-ord set like that of Astrid Andersen, Margaret Howell’s business shirt, J.W.Anderson’s spunkier version in the shape of a denim jacket, or Agi & Sam’s subtle deep blue blazer.
