THE MAN DRESSES HIMSELF FOR THE LAST COLDS
For: Mª Mercedes Álvarez
Velvet mixed with wool or leather, hats years 30, vests and duffle coats, are the pledges and textiles that are in charge in these months of cold, the rawest of the winter. The tones are: white persons, blacks and all the tonalities of gray with some touch of copper color in scarves or another complement. The footwear is praised by the warm booty.
The tendencies that triumph are:
The Scotch pictures. - Classicism with a woodcutter's certain look: many Scotch pictures and streaks in duffle coats and even in pants. Also the pictures shirts with necks and handles in target, the seaworthy overcoat and the thin ties in showy colors. All this for the day. In the night, the black and the gray flood the suits of classic cut in velvet and without big innovations that grant to the man a touch of elegance and masculinity. The most representative complements are the hat borsalino and the shoppers of Scotch inspiration. The American Tommy Hilfiger signs up to this tendency in his winter collection.
Velvet much british. - Extract british in innovative materials and of good quality, like the velvet for a few jackets of classic and traditional cut. The colors dark like the brown in all his tonalities, also the gray and the refined black. Some clear touches, but in neutral tones as the target or the beige. Suits of jacket of diplomatic streak and double set of buttons. Many vests, even with embroideries in the revers and much taken care in his finished ones. The British designer Paul Smith loves.
Style rocker. - Certain style rocker and punk of the 80s repeat themselves in pledges inspired by the street tribes, pants and huntresses realized in wrapped up point, skin and extra with metallic touches. Nevertheless, there persists the classicism of the traditional tailoring in materials like the flannel, or in finished in pictures the Prince of Wales and diplomatic streak, to which tacks are applied or even skulls, in an unusual miscellany. As for the colors, and remembering the winter snow, there proposes the black, the silver-plating and the white person. The Englishman John Richmond has presented them in his last collection.
Serviceability hundred for hundred. - Wide tweezers Pants with Americans and parkas of comfortable and free aspect. The parkas are renewed by original details, like exterior hoods superposed in the pledge or realized with more innovative materials, as the polished plastic. The chromatic scale ranges between the raw target, the gray, the very dark brown and the black, with some pledge in pink tones and eggplant. There is the classicism of the Catalan Antonio Miró and the minimalism and simplicity of Narcissus Rodríguez.
Ethnic inspiration. - Pledges for the rawest winter, very comfortable for his largeness, like shawls, ponchos and layers of silver fox and mink shaved in natural tones and chocolate. Free pants and wrapped up jackets and jerséis in wools of very thick point and crochet. Francis Montesinos brings them in his proposal.
The world of the equestrian one. - Exact Pants and jackboots for the day, completed with a wide trench like basic pledge, already be in textile of gabardine or in pure wool. There are used also the cotton, the skin and the plastic for belts, zippers and other small details. To dress the night, sets of pants and huntress in black, quite very exactly, with small details in silver spangles. Antonio Alvarado them extracted in footbridge this period.
Classic and modern. - The man dresses himself in an elegance refined across the big quality in the materials - wools, cashmere - in pledges of sports cut like the huntresses and the poles and very few shirts and ties. The tones with more success, the oros, copper, amarronados, you cremate and even silver. Prada and Jil Sander took them to Milan.
