Spring Summer 2019 proved to be a headline-hogging season of shows for menswear. A focus on practicality remained; lines blurring between workwear and streetwear as suits became casual and sweatshirts smart. Flashes of audacious colour also lift staples into the contemporary arena. Here, Menswear Buyer Laura Robertshaw spotlights the key pieces to invest in. Just remember - a trench coat goes with everything.
Modernist stripes across cosy wool-blend cloth - this tee from Maison Margiela makes the graphic knit trend accessible. Those in-the-know will recognise the label's trademark four white stitches at the back of the neck - a powerful statement for our Liberty Man.
Suit That's Not A Suit
Throw away your tracksuit bottoms, this season trousers are getting a little more formal. Folk are bridging the gap between smart and casual with a new silhouette for spring. Made from Japanese cotton twill, these slim leg trousers provide easy quality and comfort to dress up or down.
