Trend Focus: Men’s Monochrome

 MONOCHROME: Simplicity is underrated,

don’t you think?

The fashion world’s gone mono-manic and luckily it’s got to be the easiest Spring/Summer ’13 trend to nail. The black and white brotherhood is timeless and trans-seasonal, smart or casual and a completely blank canvas to work with the rest of  your wardrobe.

And so the hype surrounding the crisp Converse All Star Mono collection is BIG – unsurprisingly. The iconic silhouette of the basketball sneaker has gone back to basics to become clean, classic and when matched with it’s contrary, totally edgy.  Check out the leather styles for added rock and roll.

 

 

monochrome + micro-trend

A key micro-trend  for AW13 is the men’s slip-on shoe. The ultimate travel necessity, the slip-on is comfortable and wearable with an air of continental cool.
Cue Flossy. Founded 25 years ago, Flossy plimsolls are the ultimate combination of comfort and style, originally worn by sailing crew and artists in Spanish coastal towns. Don’t knock ’em until you’ve tried ’em. You’ll never want to take them off, and you’ll never have to, when wearing these wardrobe-staple shades : –
