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.
