From NYFW to PFW, There’s an Emerging No-Gender, Futuristic Appeal for Menswear Design | SR Review

Going by the presentations seen in the last couple of weeks at the New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, the Spring/Summer 2017 collections are piloting a new direction in the future of menswear and a general theme of man, no gender is the vibe we’re picking up from these collections. They are androgynous, universal, conceptual, edgy, dystopian and futuristic. There’s no doubt that the year 2017 will be a very interesting one especially for the fashion forward and edgy man.

Fashion forward menswear mixes street wear with Asian influences, Moroccan inspired garments with great colors and movement, ethnic prints mixed with leather and layers of garments clamped into place by amour-like vests and utility waist belts, and the highlight of this fashion forward trend is the deconstruction in the cuts of the shirts, pants, and jackets. A new profile form of menswear is featured combining function with an astute attention to details and aerodynamic aesthetics.



Fashion designers are presenting something strategically peculiar and the message is, it’s okay to be different; it is okay to not suit into this world or perpetually live. There’s also a recurring application of traditionally feminine aesthetics into the emerging menswear designs which is why we believe there’s a buzzing ‘no gender’ campaign on the horizon.

Here’s what the future looks like going by the pieces spotted on recent runway shows across the western hemisphere.
