Men’s Trends AW14

Men’s Trends AW14 – Eager to know what will be trending come AW 2014? Scandinavia has you covered.

The men’s collections at Copenhagen and Stockholm fashion week continued to showcase why the Nordic region is considered one of the best in the world when its comes to producing minimalistic, well cut clothing. Last months shows in Scandinavia saw established brands and up and coming designers alike deliver strong collections that are sure to be trending come AW14. Personal favourites were Wood Wood, Han Kjøbenhavn and the Greenlandic designer Bibi Chemnitz.

Check out my top trends from last months shows below!

1. Bomber Jackets

Scandinavia is known for its outerwear and AW14 was all about the Bomber. This season saw designers play with boxier silhouettes, multiple colourways and varying lengths as they reinterpreted the military classic

2. Man Tights

Seen everywhere from Wali Mohammed Barrech to the perfectly layered show that was Han Kjobenhavn, man tights have been a regular trend on the international scene and are staying around for another season in Scandinavia.

3. Ski Masks

Ski Masks have gained steady momentum since early 2013 when A$AP Rocky was spotted at New York Fashion Week. This trend is both fashion forward and practical as it gets pretty cold in Scandinavia and having a statement piece like the one from Wali Mohammed Barrech will really set you apart in the snow.

4. All Over Print

Done rightly all over print is amazing. A few designers opted to take the ambitious route this year to varying degrees of success. Below are the ones, who in my opinion, got it right for AW14.

5. Technical Outerwear

Being outdoors and Scandinavia go hand and hand so it is natural that collections included functional outerwear pieces for braving the elements. The collection from Wood Wood  was by far the best in this category and the designers accentuated the technical aspect by hosting the show in an indoor climbing facility.

6. Monochromatic

One of the things I love about Scandinavian fashion is the monochromatic, timeless looks that are present every year. These are the pieces that will not just be trending in AW14 but are versatile enough to be excellent additions to any wardrobe.
