It’s been a while since a summer trend was this well represented amongst the menswear collection. This season the suede jacket is taking over big time. From Balmain (that is focusing on suede with womenswear too) to Valentino, every major brand is working the sweet suede trend this summer. And even though suede might not (not at all!) be the most breathable fabric for the hottest months of the year it is everywhere. The best way to add summer suede to your wardrobe is by opting for neutrals, like Bottega Veneta, Coach, Fendi, Kenzo, Calvin Klein, Diesel and Valentino did. Etro opted for pink and Costume National went for the black on black on black ensemble you can never go wrong with. At Saint Laurent it was the fringed suede jacket that made the most impact and Lanvin’s short eighties version too looked highly desirable. And for those who want to join in on the suede fun for just a bit; just some touches of suede can be cool as well. Just take a look at the shoulder patches the models at J.W. Anderson and Gucci were rocking. And then there’s that patchwork Coach jacket that interprets the suede trend in it’s very own way. Have your pick and have a sweet suede summer!
