Spring into SS/12 – {Trend Bookmark} The Classic Tuxedo…

Long gone are the days of signature, genre conformed fashion. With the sensation of girl meets boy 2011 style – who said chino’s were a purely masculine statement? The truth is – the discourse of androgyny inspired style, has worked in alliance with  much celebrated metrosexual desires, and ideologies of hybrid fashion.

The classic tux – a welcome surprise to some, but with the early progression of male incorporated style – the boyfriend blazer which soon led to the explosive fascination of oversized colour frenzy ombre, the classic tailored and flavoured style is a simple but effective ‘add on‘, to any formerly contrasting wardrobe.

Ruffian‘s A/W’11 collection boasted the quintessential classic black tuxedo look in their runway show. A look that effortlessly screams style, from day through to evening. Doo Ri‘s SS/12 collection approaches the trend with an array of soft textures, in mix with pastel shades. With an emphasis on a more relaxed collar style,  focussing more on draped shoulder design and sleeve length – implementing casual day to evening wear variability.

Feeling a bow tie flux? Bow’s are the most quirky, statement making accessory to accompany a tuxedo ‘limo’ outfit. London Bow tie maestros’ Marwood, design the most intrinsic, detailed bow ties this side of the Thames. Incorporating lace, silks and dual fabric layers to their undoubtedly breath taking collections – View Marwood‘s collection HERE. View my 2011 article on Marwood for Frost Magazine HERE
