60s is back!
As you can understand the main idea of the new SS 2011 collection is the spirit of the 60s. So we decided to make a little fashion review of these unforgettable era)
1960s fashion for men was not as revolutionary as it was for women but there was a lot of change. Ties, belts and lapels got wider, collars got longer and wider and a modified version of the bell bottom called "flared" became popular. The conserative men's suit took on some geometric design along with the flare in the pants leg and wider lapels. Sport shirts were the norm for causal wear with the polo style being the most popular.
Men were not immune from the British invasion however and some very Mod influences managed to creep into what was once the ultra conserative men's business attire. Patterns grew bolder as did color choices. No longer were blue, black or grey the only suit choices. Ties and shirts became more colorful as well.
By the end of the sixties some fashions were here to stay, the flaired dress slack would remain in style for another decade ties and lapels didn't skinny up for another 20 - 25 years either. But among the young crowd anything that was different from the norm was cool, hip and definetly groovy.
