Mr. Contemporary: Menswear Essentials at Bloomingdale’s

Mr. Contemporary: Menswear Essentials at Bloomingdale’s

This Spring/Summer ‘17, Bloomingdale’s gives you access to a bold case of contrasts curated just for the fellas. This season encapsulates an array of shades and styles, from nautical and military, to bold stripes and stripped down color palettes. Silhouettes are audacious with boxy shoulders, fabrics are either clean and fluid or rustic and sun bleached.

Collections take us to Cuba for a summer take on the military trend of seasons past, over to the coast for effortlessly cool minimalism and finally to Venice Beach for a skate/ punk-inspired take on streetwear.

Season’s Trends

Buy into the season’s trends by doubling up on your denim, while mixing up your blue hues (Vince, Eton, and Dsquared). Dressing in Cerulean blue and minimal crisp and clean styles creates a wow factor with minimal effort (Alexander McQueen, Tee Library, and Paul Smith).

Drift away to Cuba with tropical prints tees by Valentino, Hawaiian shirts, and the season’s ripest color – olive green, which can dress up or dress down any ensemble using the simple art of layering (3.1 Phillip Lim, Givenchy and Doucal’s).

Must-have pieces with broad stripes have taken on a sporty feel with a variety of widths and vibrant colors from Paul Smith, Dsquared, and Vince. Windowpane and compact graph check a longtime Savile Row favorite transition from tailoring to sports and leisurewear.

Board shorts offer a distinctly Caribbean feel which is paired well with the defiant culture of punk that has us reimagining our wardrobes with patchwork and badges. A continuation of the Pajama trend; loungewear breaks into daywear with fluid fabric and the use of drawstring closures (Ami, Les Benjamin, and Vince).

Spring/Summer is back in full effect and shining styles.
