Autumn/Winter 2012 Menswear

The Trends – Part 1
Animal Jam
Jil Sander

Animal motifs, appliqué, embroidery and prints of animals’ faces are being seen all over the mens shows for autumn/winter 2012. 
Burberry Prorsum dominated the trend with Christopher Bailey’s owl and fox face beading and prints. 
A very cute trend for the boys.

Parka Pandemonium

To say there is going to be a parka pandemonium on our hands for the upcoming season is truly an understatement. Parkas (aka anoraks) are everywhere on the runways of Milan for menswear autumn/winter 2012 and while this trend is very practical for Europe and the cooler climates, it may not work for the Australian winter. The only way this trend can be pulled off, is if the parka is worn over a full suit – of the super luxe variety . 

Again Burberry lead the way on this one with an interesting mix of textures and textiles.The contrast between the luxe suit and the sporty parka is what makes this look. Unless you have the ability to incorporate an eccentric pair of shorts to the style with perfection – If you can’t handle the heat then don’t try this one at home.

Gotham City

Think firstly of the opening scene from Batman Begins, directed by Christopher Nolan (2005) where the young Bruce Wayne witnesses his parents getting shot and killed by a mugger on the streets of Gotham City. The vibe, the suits, Bruce Wayne Senior’s tux on their way to the opera, 1980’s New York. Then when Bruce Jr. grows up to be the wealthy character played by Christian Bale, it’s all relevant to this trend.
