Fall 2014 Menswear Shows: Sweaters and Scarvesmimi_berlin_trend_men_sweaters

Fall 2014 Menswear Shows: Sweaters and Scarves

Fall 2014 Menswear shows: New-York, London, Paris, Miiano. After watching all the shows for Fall 2014 for men on style.com, we noticed that there is actually only 1 item not to be missed: The Sweater. Almost every designer showed this key item and used it as a statement piece; The Sweater tells the story behind the collection, with a print or with fabric. (Bonus: the customer can show if he is: funny, religious, a Trekkie an animal lover or a traditionalist.) We, at Mimi Berlin do love a sweater and a print so we gathered and categorized them for you: Take your pick from: Animals/Fur/Faces/Flowers/Text/Patchwork/Fun/Romantic/The usual suspects. We hear you say: Well that’s nothing new, this “Sweater Thing” started at Givenchy, Balmain, Kenzo etc. a couple of season’s ago. No it isn’t, we reply, but if your label doesn’t carry a signature sweater by now you are really missing out on $$

Scarves: In addition of the first part of our story: We were glad to notice that there is actually another, more fashionable, key item: The Scarf. The sweater was, almost, absent at the Burberry Prorsum show, instead the models wore fishnet vests. AND tada: A Scarf, a large piece of cloth with every single look! The Sweater was also absent at the Prada show, but not so much The Scarf. Prada’s scarves ranged from what looked like, at first site, ill fitting ties to the larger snugglier fur kind. At Missoni the models wore knitted scarves the size of blankets; homely comfort taken to the street, what a nice concept. Walter van Beirendonk already designed blanket-like coats. The Floor-Lenght-Scarf was the third kind to be found at several designers.


Digging a little deeper we saw that Tommy Ton’s “street wear” pictures are full of people wearing The Scarf as well. Dear confectioneurs; get your print and dessin designers on the phone and start producing The Scarf. (all images are taken from style.com)
