Fashion Trends: The Ivy League
Make it to the big league this season in preppy pieces with a twist, clean cut silhouettes, modern plaids and chunky knit cardigans.
Who better to redefine an American classic than Thom Browne, the designer who has gained a cult following through subverting the rules of traditional masculine tailoring. Pair the designer’s signature cropped proportions with collegiate inspired details such as striped ties and signet rigs for a new way to wear a classic look.
Add a touch of the naughty school boy with Jil Sander’s playful knitwear and bright animal silhouettes that look perfect with a slick, leather rucksack to add a grown up detail that is fun and practical.
Contemporary labels such as Iceberg and Maison Martin Margiela take us back to school by experimenting with old weaving and felting techniques to create knitwear that gives a nod to the old guard and can be layered up for clever Fall dressing.
Finally, add a personal touch and step into a league of your own by inserting quirky details (such as Lanvin's bold bowties) that reflect the colours of a new reign.
