When it comes to men’s fashion, autumn can also be chic and stylish. In an interview with the news agency spot on news, Alexander Davaroukas, one of the three founders of the tailor-made clothing retailer "Monokel Berlin", reveals which suit trends await us in the cold season.
The color brown is making a comeback: "I found that exciting because it had been a very frowned upon color in recent years. It was the third office color for suits that nobody wanted," reveals the fashion expert. The color offers a wide variety of possible combinations, especially when paired with another trend - such as a pattern.
From houndstooth to "variously scaled, from super small patterns to really large patterns", there are hardly any limits to the patterns. According to Davaroukas, in order to be able to wear such a "dominant" look, "a certain self-evidence" is required.
Davaroukas also sees a trend towards knitwear and comfort for the coming season: "Knitwear is now a topic that even the most renowned weavers are taking up." Due to the increasing demand, his company even started to "build up knitwear programs".
Despite the trend reversal towards more comfort and suitability for everyday use, clear shapes can once again be found in suit cuts. The narrow lapel collars are passé. Instead, the designers are back to more breadth. "One sees much more the symmetry and harmony that such a lapel actually represents - harmonious proportions in relation to the shoulder and chest area," explains the "Monokel Berlin" co-founder.
What Davaroukas is pleased about with regard to the new collections is the fact that many men are again daring to wear double-breasted suits - "not necessarily directly the end customer, but textile engineers and fashion designers who also specify design and layout for the general public".
