King & Allen style predictions 2014
Every year the King & Allen style predictions go from strength to strength, and this year we’ve pulled out all the stops to bring you what we believe to be the definitive guidelines for looking good and staying stylish in the next 12 months.
As with all the advice we give, it’s aimed at the discerning men’s suit buyer, so it’s not going to be avant garde stuff that no one’s actually going to wear. There’s a place for breaking moulds and going against the grain, but it’s not here. Here we prefer to give expert, solid, workable advice that, although it may have trickled down from something barmy, is purely aimed at helping you make your sartorial decisions in the coming year.
How did we compile the list?
- Analysis – We analysed the catwalk shows of 49 of the fashion labels at London Collections: Men – looking for a) re-occurring themes and b) styles that stood out to us as in keeping with trends we had spotted already.
- Expertise – We spoke to the staff at King & Allen, almost all of whom have a fashion degree and are hugely passionate about men’s style.
- Science – We analysed the buying patterns of the 1000s of stylish men who bought suits from us last year so we could accurately predict the trends for next year.
The list will be published as 5 blog entries:
Part 3: Suiting Features
Part 5: What to avoid…
In the meantime here are some visual highlights from last week’s London Collections: Men
