Stitch: Top 5 trends


Already seen across the Berlin trade shows, print is a must for next season. At Stitch, some menswear brands toned down an overall printed look by using contrasting fabrics on garments. For example, Firetrap added patterned pockets and yokes.

Graphic T-shirts

Printed T-shirts were abundant, with brands including Gio-Goi offering a range of brightly coloured cotton tees with logos emblazoned across the chest. Menswear brand Fly53 also served up a diverse range of T-shirts featuring graphic prints, flocked logos and motifs. Bench’s collection featured T-shirts with black and white photographic prints overlaid with coloured illustrations.

Dark denim

Smarter looks were few and far between. However, bottoms took on a formal edge, with much of the denim in clean, dark washes. Rips and distressed denim were kept to a minimum.

Lightweight functional outerwear

After another wet UK summer in 2012, menswear brands have stocked up on waterproof outerwear for 2013. Cagoules, macs and Harrington jackets in durable fabrics proved popular for many in bright summery shades.

Coloured shorts

Lower halves will look lively next spring as many brands plumped for bright bottoms. Firetrap highlighted a pair of cherry red shorts, with other brands showcasing chino shorts in vivid brights. Denim brand LTB Jeans showcased knee-length shorts in olive, salmon, lemon and teal.
