Power to imagination, to the free game of contrasts and combinations, rich and eclectic decorations, ironic, colorful and imaginative style. This year men's fashion takes possession of one of the most creative elements of fashion, the print.
With decorative floral patterns or stripes of all kinds, lettering and numbers, symbols and winking smiley faces, prints are the absolute protagonists of men's clothing on the catwalks of Fendi, Ermanno Scervino, Philipp Plein, Missoni, Neil Barrett, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli.
With a bit eccentric taste, the most imaginative matches are between geometric motifs and graphic designs, botanical and zoomorphic prints, in a kaleidoscope of colors and shades that exalt the absolute freedom of style. Through fashion, the modern man can thus be free from the constraints and stereotypes of classic clothing, that tends to be monochrome or nearly so, definitely elegant but sometimes boring.
The prints have the power to give free rein to imagination, but the important thing is to match them in the right way. So here are our suggestions, to give a boost of energy to your wardrobe.
Strange and funny
Prints of eyes watching us, of funny and winking faces, all-over and multicolored prints with numbers, letters and symbols of various types. Go ahead and mix all together: just add some easy pieces such as t-shirts and sporty jackets, a background color like black and the classic jeans to tone down the outfit’s final aspect.
