SS13 menswear is all about living in the Hipster’s Paradise

It’s time to progress from the humdrum of cold winter nights and the subsequent layering of bleak colouring and lust after spring’s menagerie of tropical Hawaiian colours.

Menswear biggest trend for Spring/Summer is the revival of 70s disco mixed with 90s UK acid house scene to create a futuristic explosion of print and colour, definitely only for those that aren’t scared to push the boundaries of fashion, think Leigh Bowery performance art but with a street wear vibe.

Moschino, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli have shown influence this S/S in pop art with bright block coloured suits. Versace mixed it up with double breasted suit jacket cut off at the shoulders teamed with bubblegum coloured short shorts. For a more avant-garde futuristic vibe for the season look to Margiela and Lanvin use of metallic tone.

Tip for establishing that you are wearing the most trend worthy colours think fruit but with a surrealist twist – watermelon, tangerine, acidic apples, banana.

For inspiration for S/S trend look to Tate, Liverpool upcoming exhibition ‘Glam! The Performance of Style’ which opens 8th February. It offers a look into the visually extravagant pop glam style which is all about bold colours and the pushing of fashion boundaries which S/S 13 is all about. Also V&A exhibition 'David Bowie opening 23rd March one sure to pack the most meatiest of colour punches.
