Alpine Adventure: AW 15 Menswear
This fall/winter 2015, we're setting off on an alpine adventure. Exploring the peaks and valleys of Chamonix's dazzling and distinctive landscape.
Protect against the colder temperatures by layering up and switching from lighter options to heavier fabrics. With wool pieces like beanie hats, socks, sweaters and cardigans, to help you combat the climate stylishly.
When thinking about layering, it's all about building up the outfit. Starting with lighter options like checked shirts with a shawl-collar cardigan on top. Finished off with a jacket, like a trimmed parka, padded bomber or a quilted field jacket.
The color palette stays muted with charcoal gray, khaki, oatmeal and navy dominating the trend. Pattern comes into play through checked shirts with calm and cool hues like light blue and sandy tones. The emphasis is on texture with ribbed beanies, fringed scarves, diamond-quilted jackets and cable knit cardigans.
Denim comes in skinny and slim fits with a slight roll-up showing wool socks. This showcases the wide range of high-top footwear available. Shoes vary from dressy to casual with the wide range of boots from Chelsea and wingtip to hiking and desert. Casual options include running sneakers and basketball-inspired mid tops.
