Men’s Contemporary Print Theme: Arabian Interiors

A focus on interior inspirations is key, together with subtle plays on tone and minimal takes on classic styles. Sourced from the menswear shows at London, Milan and Paris.

Eastern Upholstery Prints

A key trend on the Paris runways, menswear prints look to the East for fall, transforming interior-inspired patterns with a hint of Arabian exoticism. Upholstery-style surfaces play with scale, executed with tactile fabrics in the form of Louis Vuitton’s square briefcase and Dries Van Noten’s knitted sweater. Other highlights include Kenzo’s urban winter coat and Antonio Marras’ coordinated top/scarf combination.

Arabesque Graphic Stripes

Other interpretations mix Arabian motifs with ikat patterns or apply placement stripes to create a culture clash of prints, as seen at Givenchy and Bottega Veneta. Bold pops of winter brights stand out on dark seasonal colourways, as seen on Walter Van Beirendonck’s tactile coat, while Louis Vuitton layers prints for a statement effect on a jacket. This print trend updates F/W 2015-16 styles with a modern East-meets-West appeal.
