Future Trend For Men's Fashion

Aug 17, 2007
Shouldn't we all be wearing spacesuits by now? Certainly, that's what Blakes 7 and Logans Run had us believing!

At the very least by 2007 we should surely all look like we've just stepped out of an episode of Doctor Who. Yet for some reason, men's fashion has never really embraced the whole futuristic look. Brief flirtations yes, but a relationship never really consumated.

Maybe men are just more conservative than women when it comes to fashion, they know what they like and they like what they know, The key trends in men's fashion over the last decade could hardly have been more retro if they'd involved a suit of armour and a lance!

Lately, fashion for men has revolved around a few key looks, none of which could be considered remotely modernist or futuristic. Those trends such as preppy college boy, sharp suited mod complete with brylcreemed hair and even punk has had something of a revival. Yet they are looks all rooted firmly in the past. In fact, it is arguable that the last time we saw futurism casting a shadow over men's fashion was as long ago the early nineties.

Then, men's experiment with futuristic fashions ended in satorial disaster!

Who can forget those global hypercolour t-shirts that changed colour based on your body temperature? Memories of those still smart, especially images of the under-arm area that drew attention to any anti-perspirant failure and that's before we get started on velcro strapped techno sandals, polar fleeces and combat trousers made out of some sort of space age tent material!

But judging by the spring collections and the key looks emerging from the recent New York and London catwalk shows, for 2007 men's fashion designers seem brave enough once again to try something a little futuristic.

You can expect metallic suits to be coming soon to an office near you! Maybe it's time to dig out the old LA Law re-runs! Shirts made from shiny, shiny materials will be everywhere, and even the ultimate in retro footwear brands Converse are getting in on the act with metallic versions of their popular training shoes.

T-Shirts are another area where you will see lots of metallic finishes. Expect to see versions of popular t-shirt staples get a gold and silver reworking. The t-shirt will remain white but we'll be seeing previously black slogans and images get a golden touch. Frankie may say relax but this year he'll be saying it resplendent in a silver finish. Already popular are metallic rock band logo's on tees and this is likely to get more so.

Key advice for those wishing to try out this trend would be to not go overboard..for example Comme des Garcons gold trousers might work on the catwalk but may seem just a little over the top in your local public house!

One look that will work well is a more toned down pearl lustre shirt twinned with a black suit. At the very least, it's not going to draw attention to your sweat patches, which as far as futuristic fashion goes, shows progress!
