Thoughtful design with a quiet sensibility echoed the time of reflection and meaning seeking designers find themselves in. Clean and considered looks were given a creative twist or nodded to the outside world, celebrating and uniting global cultures.

Trendstop brings FashionUnited readers the key themes emerging from the Men’s Spring Summer 2021 Fashion Weeks.

Spring/Summer 2021 menswear catwalk trends

Artful Utility

The resurgence of creativity and crafting revive the long-running utility trend. Functional silhouettes and durable fabrications are detailed with hand drawn pencil lines, collaged panels and embroidery to introduce a considered decorative element to utilitarian aesthetics.

Elevated Clinical Sport

Sportswear cleaned up for SS21 with a fresh clinical purity. Clean lines and head-to-toe white highlight crisp, unexpected details such as pleating. Graphics are more subtle, using considered placement, finer lines and scaled-down pops of colour.
