WGSN - Designer inspired look - Blue Hues



New York fashion week’s runway looks for men never disappoints. Yesterday I shared some of my favourite designs showcased by Camo, Craft Atlantic and Perry Ellis. The one thing that I really loved about the designs was the different shades of blue that was used and incorporating the blues by using different textiles and textures. Graphic prints were seen as predicted in the trend forecast, also with a 1950’s inspired look as seen in some of the designs featured by Craft Atlantic. These youthful looks were mostly effortless when it came to accessories, leaving the main focus on the clothing itself. The clean lines of Camo’s designs made this a look that most guys can pull off. The Craft Atlantic designs showcased some of the fine graphic prints in their shorts where the Perry Ellis designs used flowier prints in the tops. 



I went through all the looks of each of the designers’ and decided to use these three as inspiration for the outfit I styled.  Something that you should keep in mind when looking at runway looks and making them your own is to only use certain elements of the looks. None of these looks can be copied exactly the same – and sometimes a runway look should simply stay a runway look. I liked the white buttoned up white shirt from Camo and the sneakers the model wore. The printed short from Craft Atlantic served as yet another inspiration to me and when it comes to the Perry Ellis look I took some inspiration from the printed knitwear jersey. 

White Viyella regular fit shirt available at Zando.
Nevada shorts in Navy available at Spree.
Smith & Jones oaks pull over jersey in navy available at Zando.
Reebok grade A sneakers available at Spree.

When putting together an outfit it is important to keep in mind that you can be a bit playful when it comes to different shades of one colour. With the colour of the inspirational looks being blue, I decided to keep this look in the blue-hue family. I started this look off with a simple white buttoned up white shirt and then decided to pair it up with the Nevada shorts in a navy blue with the Smith & Jones Oaks pull over jersey in a navy and grey/blue colour. As seen in the inspirational looks, it is essential to keep it simple therefor I only added the white Reebok grade a sneakers.

When you keep in mind that runway looks only serve you with elements that you can use to style a look – you will always get it right!
