One small step for menswear...
The recent menswear shows, shop windows and general street trends have made it official, the future is here!
Versace’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection was a stylishly curated journey through the solar system. Monochrome and moon grey shades were everywhere you looked, Neil Armstrong would have felt right at home. The tonal shades gave a clean, concise feel and added to the futuristic look.
Donatella Versace described her collection and her customer perfectly. "The Versace man is a pioneer, his ambition as big as the universe. This is a collection for men who are totally real, totally bold and totally connected with the future." Enter the Esquire man.
Never one to shy away from a statement trend, Dolce & Gabbana have added two new sneakers to their footwear range. The new styles have a zigzag rubber sole and velcro straps with coloured mesh upper in orange and blue options. For an easy-to-wear reference to the trend the mized material lace up style may be a safer bet in a simple silver tone. Wear them with smart tailored cropped black trousers and white shirt for a cool, classic look.
Esquire loves watches! Who doesn’t? How I hear you cry, does this new trend tie into the watches of this world? Well, the Franck Muller Vanguard Gravity Collection prove this isn't just for the apparel lovers among us. Directly inspired by the universe of astronomy, the Vanguard Gravity collection puts tech innovation and futurism at the heart of its design.
The Vanguard Gravity is available in titanium, stainless steel and 18-carat gold. This modern, sporty collection has straps that come in a variety of finishes including nylon and alligator.
Fashion, watches, what else has been struck by this all-encompassing trend? Leading Italian homeware and interiors brand Minotti are renowned for striking the perfect balance between tradition and technology. With the recent collection available at Bloomingdales home they have done just this, but leaning towards a more futuristic aesthetic.
The collection explores new shapes using a modern, chic design ethos that evokes visions of a futuristic millionaire’s bachelor.
Modern, contemporary and relevant, it seems this futuristic trend is here to stay.
