Menswear Trend 2012 ~ Return of the Gentleman

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

While doing research for a -potentially- new and very cool project, I realized that we have been neglecting all of the fashion curious men in our life! Here are our top picks for 2012 – welcome the year of the Gentleman.

{Our favorite} top 3 menswear labels at the moment are:

1. Ami,
The premise of the founder, Alexandre Mattiussi, was that he wanted to create clothes for himself and his friends – hence the name, ‘ami’. The label is masculine, in keeping with the gentleman trend as far as fit and sparing use of color. J’adore.

2. Maison Kitsuné,
Another French label, Maison Kitsune had a full Great Gatsby inspired S/S 2012. Always on the more preppy side in its clothing collections, it totally fits this trend. Additionally, Kitsuné has a great record label that is anything but conservative. Definitely check it out!

3. The Kooples,
This is a label that consistently impresses – it has a very pulled together and tailored feel while keeping a cool/rock edge. The Kooples also started a sport collection that shouldn’t disappoint, this year!

The other images are from the runway shows from last September – really nice pops of color for this Spring/Summer and fit. If you’re looking for more inspiration, we can also suggest Perry Ellis, JCREW, Bespoken, Loden Dager (images above with shorts) and Zara Man.

Hope you enjoy! ccxo
