Patchwork, Denims and Colours – Menswear Fashion Trends 2021

Reading Time: 5 minutes

The perception of fashion has been unanimously driven by a series of trends and cultural theories. While we brace ourselves to look at the unbelievable, bizarre and at times eye candy styles, it also gives us insights into the past and to the time when it must have all begun.

A common narrative prevails that men’s fashion is synonymous to crisp and formal shirts and the tailored suits, like the ones we saw in the age-old black and white movies. The new age designers are flinging aside the idea of formality off the window and giving place to comfortable yet experimental style beyond the idea of blues and blacks.

From the detachable collar era of the 1910’s and superman suit jackets of the 1930’s to the 1950’s era of pastel shorts and dark flannel suits, men’s fashion has been influenced by the history and tradition much like any fashion trend. Nostalgia is a major driving force that inspires most designers.

The runway at spring/summer 2021 was seamlessly unusual. Brands such as Balenciaga and Gucci saw themselves holding virtual fashion shows. While the pandemic gave way to phygital fashion weeks, it also ensured that designers experimented with creativity at various levels.
