MENS15 TRENDS PLAID Runway | Spring 15 Mens Print Stories

The Spring 15 Men’s shows offered plenty of outlandish and over the top looks. On the conservative side, there were loads of the usual plaids, with some interesting twists, as seen above. The cut-out collage trend continues to gain traction with lots of contrasting and bright color. Expressive brushstrokes add to the drama of the collections as seen below. It will be interesting to see how these looks translate into retail. Probably quite a transformation!

Leslie David’s client list is pretty dreamy with projects for high end fashion houses like Chanel to culture boutiques such as Colette. Working as an art director, graphic designer, and illustrator, David produces consistently inspiring pieces which include print designs, paintings, as well as branding. It’s easy to see why she’s in such high demand. Her distinct, detailed pencil illustrations or clever packaging ideas make her work stand out. View more of this Paris-based designer’s creations here.

When Wildfang creative director, Taralyn Thuot, tapped us to collaborate with them on their high summer collection, we jumped on it. Taking an early 90s direction as inspiration, we created a series of bold graphics and prints, along with a customized version of their wolf mascot, which were then printed or embroidered across a range of garments. We brought the prints to life as large-scale fabric shapes for the in-store displays as seen above. Check out the full collection for a limited time here.

On these hot summer days, the last thing you think about is a bulky knit..but what if you could have knit AND breezy? These designers are showing us the way. Debossing and printing a knit pattern gives us an illusion of coziness without the heat.

Abstract patterns and textures from rocks and minerals act as the inspiration for Supreme Bon Ton’s first silk scarf collection titled, Meteorite. This Paris-based textile design studio was founded last year by Ella Perdereau following a traveling stint in India and Latin America. To capture the playful spirit of the line, Perdereau collaborated with photographer, Florent Tanet. See more of the collection here.
