Fashion Trends: The Ivy League

Posted on 28th October 2012 | Fashion Trends

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.

THOM BROWNE - COOL WOOL JACKET

DIOR HOMME - BEE EMBROIDERY POPLIN COTTON SHIRT

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.

JIL SANDER - POPLIN FITTED SHIRT

DSQUARED - TWO TONE WOOL KNIT CARDIGAN

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.

ANDREA POMPILIO - CASHMERE FELT DOUBLE BREASTED JACKET

ICEBERG - NEEDLE-FELT COLLAR WOOL FLANNEL JACKET

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.

LES HOMMES - REGIMENTAL CASHMERE RAW CUT TIE

BURBERRY PRORSUM - COTTON TWILL STRETCH TIE

ICEBERG - 5CM WOOL CASHMERE KNIT STRIPED TIE
