Focus on details
Over the past few years, menswear has found in the details a way to express their style in a more creative manner, to rethink the male wardrobe starting from shapes and classic garments and renew them in a modern and innovative way.
The particulars of the garments become the protagonists of the winter collections of designers like Letasca, Philipp Plein, Golden Goose, Fendi, Dsquared2 and M.S.G.M.
This new fashion trend runs away from the excesses and extravagant shapes to reach a new unconventional aesthetic, focuses its attention on the small things so as to bestow importance and beauty to modern male clothing. When we talk about details, we think, for example of technical accessories, such as zippers used as decorations, or a way of treating the surfaces and fabrics or a way to something with inserts of different materials and applications.
Through some simple but impactful elements, men’s wardrobe can be completely renewed and acquire a new strong character. Here are our suggestions for interpreting this fashion trend.
Zip and Go!
Halfway between the trend of the do-it-yourself and technical sportswear, the youth fashion breaks the traditional rules through the zipper closures. Not only seen as a functional accessory, they become decorative materials to place everywhere in large quantities, to highlight interesting points, open up new cuts in garments, and give off a very rock metallic sheen.

Scarified, frayed, damaged, badly dyed, patched and apparently dirty. The clothes seem used, but are not. Frayed hems and tye-dye fabrics provide the worn effect of garments, surface treatments make garments or accessories look already used. The new object becomes part of our daily experience, it awakens in us feelings of familiarity and old memories, as if it always belonged to us. That’s nostalgia!

Fashion and style are a way to express everyone’s uniqueness. For this reason, the new clothing and the most innovative accessories underline the male body emphasizing the details and some elements. With leather or fabric insert, special colors combinations and applications, sometimes in fur, even the simplest shape acquires a new character.
