There were a ton of cool [design elements] brought to life on the FW15 runways and I can’t wait to see how guys bring them to life in the streets as we head further into the season. Now when I say “design elements,” I’m talking about refreshing breakaways from more traditional menswear silhouettes and awesome statement accents. These are a few of my favorites. -J
The silhouettes play a game of balance this fall, going from a tight look with cinched waists to total overflows of fabric by way of extra-long sleeves, wide-leg trousers and draped outerwear. Check out a runway rundown from Casely Hayford, Moschino or Agi & Sam for a clear picture of what I mean. Also, layering is coming into play with the doubled outerwear look — you can take a few notes from Lou Dalton. Whether it’s a hoodie and a moto or a denim jacket under a trench, two is way better than one.

The little details make the biggest impacts, and there are plenty of dope accents to catch the eye this season. We saw zipper overload from brands like KTZ, while the straps were on 100 at Craig Green. Pockets showed up in all sizes and in all places on everything from outerwear and pants to stylish backpacks, while safety pins were a statement symbol in the world of accessories.
