Deliberate violation of the silhouette and cut is one of the most difficult and interesting techniques in fashion. Things “disassembled” into details, and then seemingly reassembled in a careless manner, have been included in the lists of trends for several years. The sleeveless belt at the Dries Van Noten show, the radically cropped Alexander McQueen trench coat, and the intricately constructed Lanvin parkas all look great. In short, there is definitely a lot to choose from.

The task of integrating elements of western style into your everyday image and not being associated with the song “I Shot the Sheriff” is not the easiest, but quite possible and definitely interesting. In addition, during the shows, the Cossacks, if they did not force out sneakers and sandals from the catwalk, then seriously curtailed their rights. Additional options are shirts and vests with metal corners on the collars, as in the Études show, jackets made of plastic leather or suede with the addition of fringes (Les Hommes had excellent examples), characteristic embroidery on jeans and bright scarves in colorful patterns. Wear all this with the most neutral things, and no one will think of comparing you to the heroes of Clint Eastwood.

Combining art and fashion is a story as old as the world. But this year, such a union is one of the favorite design techniques. In the next spring-summer season, regardless of your preferences in cinema, painting or sculpture, you can definitely find something to your liking: pop art, impressionism, fauvism, photography, graphics, comics and animation.

White total bow
The image, assembled in white from head to toe, is a controversial phenomenon not only in men's, but even in women's fashion. Discussions about such a total look are ongoing from season to season, but it seems that next year it will be easier for everyone to switch to the bright side. Designers clearly explain how to create such an image and not look ridiculous at the same time: oversize, references to military, layering, small details in other colors, for example, bright laces on sneakers.

At the Balmain show, there were jeans and sweaters, lavishly decorated with crystals, and at the Saint Laurent show, glitter was applied to the bodies of the models. However, of course, we do not call for such bold decisions. But an oversized jumper with splashes of lurex, a blazer with silver, as if made of foil, inserts on the lapels or a dark shirt decorated with metallic threads, will perfectly fit not only an evening, but even everyday wardrobe.

Large, slightly lurid, naive, reminiscent of the psychedelic patterns of the 1960s. We do not recommend transferring runway looks to the context of real life and dressing in such prints from head to toe, but one such bomber, bermuda shorts or shirt will definitely not be superfluous in the wardrobe of the next spring-summer season.

Very short shorts
They were all over the place and most often in the company of chunky sneakers or sandals. Look for the boldest options at Prada, for a less provocative length, we recommend going to Fendi and Dior Homme.

Suits, polos, jumpers and overalls in the shade of Ladurée's assortment will no longer seem out of the ordinary for next season. You don't have to dress up completely in pale pink and lilac, but imagine how the blazers from the Kim Jones collection for Dior Homme would look good with more formal items, such as gray trousers. Saint Laurent also had a perfect look - a pink blazer combined with a shirt, trousers and black Cossacks.

Short Sleeve Shirts
The main requirements for shirts with short sleeves are the most informal look (prints are welcome) and a free silhouette. Just in case, we remind you that you cannot wear such a thing with a tie even under the threat of being shot. These shirts are for days off work. Another way to play up the short sleeve is to wear a shirt over a long sleeve, as was fashionable in the 1990s. The styling inspiration at the Fendi show seems to have been inspired by the trends of this particular decade. Lanvin offers a similar combo, only replacing the long sleeve with a long sleeve shirt. The simplest and safest option is a short-sleeved shirt, worn as a vest, wide open. We saw such images at Versace and Lanvin.

This season, Virgil Abloh was reproached for borrowing some ideas from his colleague - Raf Simons. In particular, things with the effect of airbrushing, which were at the Calvin Klein show for the spring-summer 2018 season. At the same time, critics for some reason ignored the leather coats created by the creative director of Lanvin Oswald Ossendrijver, or Hermès accessories made in a similar technique. In 2018, it’s already strange to figure out who and what “borrowed” from whom, but the fact remains: leather coats and jackets, T-shirts, accessories and trousers with stains, as if applied by a spray of paint, are still relevant in the next season.

In modern men's fashion, the struggle against gender stereotypes is sometimes felt even more acutely than in women's fashion. Skirts, shoes with heels, ruffles, laces, deep cuts and other traditionally female wardrobe items are gaining a place in men's shows every season. This year has come the turn of transparent fabrics, which, by the way, are much easier to adapt to life than it seems at first glance. For example, the Acne Studios vinyl jacket can be easily worn over any sweaters and sweatshirts, and the partially transparent trousers from the Dior Homme show will not raise any questions during a beach holiday.

If you are sure you know how to properly combine an abstract print with a stripe or floral ornaments with op art, take note of this trend. Combinations of different types of cells look especially interesting, for example, Madras and Windsor or small vichy with a large chess grid.

There are still several months before the announcement of the main color of 2019 according to Pantone, but yellow in a variety of shades and degrees of intensity can definitely be recorded as the likely favorites - from pale lemon to canary yellow. European catwalks seemed to be illuminated by the sun: a little less intensely in Milan and especially brightly in Paris.

Everyone interpreted the military theme in their own way this season. Balmain has camisoles rethought in a modern way, Louis Vuitton has sleeveless jackets that resemble either armor or a bulletproof vest, and Valentino put his logo over a camouflage print. The designers especially liked the cargo pants that were seen at every second show, including Dior Homme and Dolce & Gabbana.

Attention, attention, says Italy (and Paris echoes): next spring, wide jeans are in the foreground. Moreover, both "moderately free" (Versace, MSGM), and reminiscent of harem pants. Even conservative Italians Ermenegildo Zegna and Pal Zileri picked up the trend. You should not worry - the classics, of course, will not go anywhere (many brands have shown straight jeans familiar to everyone), but lovers of the skinny style will definitely have to wait for better times.

We are talking about the most popular way of styling jeans next spring (however, no one bothers to practice this technique right now). Whether we are talking about trousers, jeans or even shorts - the cuffs should be very wide, as in the shows of Giorgio Armani or Valentino.

Independent, in the company of other patterns, active or slightly noticeable. Animal print was first introduced in such variety at men's fashion weeks. Versace relied on python, Yohji Yamomoto got black and white leopard spots, Valentino and Saint Laurent opted for natural colors. If these patterns don't seem masculine enough for you, remember Robbie Williams' performance at the recent opening of the FIFA World Cup: a red suit with leopard spots looked great on him. In everyday life, you can wear loose trousers made of thin cotton with a snake scale or a white T-shirt with a small but noticeable detail, such as a leopard pocket.
