Flashback: Look Back At Men's Fashion In 2015 (Part 3)

Look back in wonder at the year in men’s fashion trends and themes in this flashback. By Daniel Goh
Prada went dopey for denim in an almost-all denim collection
Dopey For Denim
Very much of this new Youthquake is the importance of denim. Jeans are here to stay. Perhaps it recalls the time when fashion was still young and innocent (1950s), perhaps it is nostalgia for a time when work was physical and visceral rather than taking a selfie and posting to Facebook or pretending to be a celeb with a slyly-plotted OOTD. Prada, which is as avant-garde and thinking as they come, and always social commentary, devoted its entire collection to denim.

Talk Nerdy To Me
Did you notice the trend for nerdy/studious glasses this year? It replaced the hipster Ray-Bans as the de rigueur frames, and celebrate the perks of being a wallflower: Standing out in a We-fie. When everyone around you is being a total glamazon-influencer, you need to be a total nerd, just, you know, to stand out?

(Spring/Summer 2015 examples: JW Anderson SS 29; Prada SS 35 36 44 47 8 12; LV SS 5 7 18 33 35 37; Gucci SS 6)
