vivienne westwood men spring 2014

 

I'm sensing a trend. While womenswear is being heavily influenced by men this season, next season we are going to see the bright colors that dominated womenswear gain prominence in men's clothing. Why do I say this? Because most of the men's collections I've seen so far have had neon bright colors (see In the Showrooms: Diesel Spring/Summer 2014).

Vivienne Westwood's men collection, although filled with traditional subdued tones, was sprinkled throughout with pops of color in bright oranges, fuschias and seafoam in all over prints. Patent oxford shoes looked like edible candy dyed in the same hues as the apparel (see below). With the popularity of neon bright sneakers, it's not too far-fetched to think that bright colored oxfords for men could go mainstream. You heard it here first. 

One of my favorites of the collection was the rust-colored ombre denim shirt (above), but not for men. For me! I love the womenswear-inspired details evident in the ruched sleeve and assymetrical buttons. Those details seem new again when made to gender bend. It's a lot easier to borrow from the boys when they're inspired by girls.

Take a look at the rest of the collection below.
