Valentino

Valentino SS17

The notion of consumers’ needs and wants has been hurled into the spotlight as digital platforms have put traditional systems in question. Valentino offers a solution to the conundrum by designing simple silhouettes and contemporary pieces – lots of olive, navy and black with tone-on-tone detailing and plenty of camouflage (a veritable Valentino classic by now).  

Givenchy

Dark and mystical can make one feel disheartened, but Givenchy always manages to push those through with an artistic element and intriguing story. This season, Givenchy is focusing on warrior figures and masculine silhouettes through sharp tailoring, squared shoulders, zippered pockets and puffed chests. 

Hermès

Hermès SS17

Hermès SS17

Hermès is probably the only brand that never really needs to follow trends. Season after season, the brand stands alone in its realm of understated luxury wear. And it seems like this time around, it’s headed towards a more youthful direction with punchy hues, tie-dye silk knits, and bomber-jacket-and-narrow-pants combos . 

Dior Homme

Dior Hommes SS17

Dior Hommes SS17

Mister Dior’s shaking up runway with goth and punk elements. Against a backdrop consisting of a big roller coaster and carnival-themed lights, Kris Van Assche sent out youthful iterations of the suit: sleeveless, with balloon pants, paneled with contrast strips and even with D-rings.
