What a lovely editorial of The Clothes Whisperer in the new Phoenix Magazine!
The strongest trend coming off the Spring Summer 2012 menswear runways in Milan had less to do with color and cut (ok, prevalent consensus appeared there too, and the answers are blue and relaxed, respectively) and more with mood. The Spring Summer 2012 man is a jock of a all trades, dubbed by Vivienne Westwood as “The Gentleman Sportsman,” the iconic male athlete, a zeitgeist no doubt spurred on by the fast approaching 2012 Olympics.
The great male pastime, essentially, the man at leisure, manifested itself throughout Milan’s key collections. At Dolce & Gabbana mainline, there were Sicilian fishermen and Milanese footballers (a motif carried from seaside to soccer pitch via a heavy reliance on netting). At Frankie Morello, cyclists in neon spandex biking shorts teamed with tailored and traditional blazers, at Etro, Riveria-bound eclectic sailors walked proud in an assortment of sort and exotic prints. Calvin Klein showed a quintessentially All-American jock inspired collection, consisting of luxe leather sweatpants and fine cotton wife beaters. At Vivienne Westwood, athletes of all walks of sport, from very quintessentially English and quirky cricketers to barrel chested mini-shorted and somewhat eroticized marathon-runners (her opening look was a tee-shirt printed with a metallic Olympic Torch and all the models were glistened with a faux-sweat).
So while the Olympics are yet in reality still a good year or so away, as far as men’s fashion is concerned, 2012 is already here: let the games begin.
