FW 14 Menswear

When menswear collections are to be sent down the runways everyone around the world awaits the great reveals in what's  new in terms of trends for the upcoming saeson. This time it was for Fall/Winter 14 and one thing can be said for sure, winter won't be so gloomy for men this year.
Last season we saw a lot of interesting vibrant prints on menswears (think Givenchy SS14). As winter comes with a natural sense of being dark most fashion houses refrained from using bright colors this season. A few colors that are big this season are tan, black and different shades of dark blue.
There are also a lot of interesting jackets this season with dramatic geometric cuts and length, one thing you should know is that your winter jackets should not be anywhere above the knee in length. Alexandra McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Maison Martin Margiela and Prada are just some of the many houses which opted for interesting cuts and clean looks for their menswear collections.

Finally back!!!! Before we get any further I'd like to wish everyone a great happy new year. Everyone is officially back to their daily grind be it work, school or whatever that you do.
This post is basically a quick welcome back to Elihle In Mars and the new year just because I love you guys that much.
Well everyone knows that as we begin the new year we also get on with new trends, collections, and styles. The fashion world is no stranger to change and innovation. The title of this post basically says it all. January sees us being introduced to a number of exciting collections from international famous fashion houses. The past week saw the end of the Menswear FW 14 (ready-to-wear) week. And today marks exactly 5 days since Haute Couture Week began in Paris.
I will now promise to bring you some of the collections which I find rather thought provoking, groundbreaking and those which I think we should discuss together. In regard to photos from collections most of them will be shared on Instagram, so make sure you follow me @KingElihleLee.

There is quite a lot in store for 2014 and I don't usually kiss and tell so I'll just have to say watch the space for now.
