While the big female designers are getting ready to show their collections this September for Spring/Summer 2020, the majority of menswear shows just happened in June/July. From NYC to London, Milan and Paris- the runways buzzed with satin overcoats, 90s inspired tie-dye and short shorts. Below are some of the trends we’re excited about and eager to help you incorporate into your 2020 wedding day look!
The ultra-close weave of satin helps it achieve that glossy, liquid surface it’s best known for. A favourite of womenswear designers back in the 50s, for SS2020 the menswear contingent has given the fabric a fresh new look. Designers like 8on8, Charles Jeffrey, Saint Laurent and Zegna incorporated the trend on their runways. Part of going super custom means being able to change the fabric so if this trend is calling to you let's include it in your I DEUX!
2) Bowling Shirts
Silky, boxy and complete with spread camp collars, this season’s billowing, short-sleeved bowling shirts were everywhere on London’s runways. The best could be found at Edward Crutchley, where they were ultra-louche and worn open, and at Dsquared2 and Dolce & Gabbana, where the look was similar. While we’re not necessarily suggesting you wear a bowling shirt for your wedding, the loud prints seen on the runways and often associated with the look are certainly achievable with your I DEUX print pattern.
3) Oversized Oxford shirts
The return of preppy dressing has been on the cards for some time now, but for Spring/Summer 2020 the trend reaches full tilt. From the return of boat shoes and penny loafers to the proliferation of varsity blazers and rugby shirts, it was the oversized, panelled Oxford shirts shown at Prada, Chalayan and Liam Hodges that provided the most creative take on the trend we’ve seen thus far. For SS2020 it appeared the bigger you wear it the better and while we typically aim to get that nice clean custom fit, if you want to embrace this trend we’re all in!
Stripes are the wardrobe must-haves and one of the easiest patterns to pull off. So it’s hardly surprising that stripes aren’t going anywhere. In addition, pinstripe suits made a comeback after suiting made a welcome return to the world’s runways last summer. Once favoured by bankers and businessmen, for SS20 the fabric feels contemporary and chic at Dolce & Gabbana, Emporio Armani and Chalayan. While a pinstripe suit might be a bit much for your wedding day look, incorporating the trend into your I DEUX for the party could be a fun way to wear the runway.
5) Double breasted tailoring
The new trend towards extreme double-breasted tailoring has reinvented the unique statement piece with new fabrics either making them super fitted or straight cut. We saw plenty of excess fabric wrapped around the body like a shroud in classic form at HLA x AEX and in more restrictive styles at Dsquared 2 and Ralph Lauren. In Paris, Dunhill, Balmain, Dior and Dries Van Noten all showed a take on the extra-double breasted trend, and the look felt both chic and neat. While we dont make suits yet (keyword yet) we’re excited to help you pick your design specs to go with your choice of a double breasted suit for your wedding!
6) Autumnal hues (for spring)
Traditionally speaking, the spring/summer season calls for soft, summery hues of mauve and primrose, millennial pink and mint. Now, however, for SS2020, it’s all about moody, rusty, altogether more autumnal shades of bronze, maroon, copper and burgundy. With our next collection dropping soon (get excited) we’re happy to report were right on trend to help you incorporate these hues into your look!
7) Jungle Inspired Prints
It is definitely a jungle out there when it comes to prints offered for this season. A colourful mix of flora and fauna has been seen gracing the runways. Animal print made a surprise return to the runways last season and now, for SS2020, animal print is set to pounce back into your wardrobe whether you like it or not. From the silk tiger-stripe camp collar shirts at Dsquared2 to the leopard-print extravaganza at Dolce & Gabbana and the ombre ocelot sweatshirts at MSGM – if you don’t already own some animal print, it’s time to invest right now. We might not have an animal print in our current or upcoming collection but we’re more than happy to help you find the perfect print to reflect your inner animal via our print consultation.
There was a general move toward punky, homespun, messed with fashion at the menswear shows this season. But not like 60’s tie-dye T-Shirts, it’s the evolution of tie-dye that makes it feel fresh for 2019. Leading the charge was Sterling Ruby, whose inaugural collection featured a host of bleach-splattered denim jackets and overdyed two pieces. But other designers like Versace and Dior embraced the look as well. Again we don’t have tie-dye in our current or upcoming collections but we’re eager to find this trending print pattern for the perfect groom!
