As much as it was a grande celebration of fashion outside the shows (have you seen our Paris streetstyle images yet?), we of course arrived in the city of love to soak up all of the latest designer collections. After having witnessed all the highs and the lows it is now time to recap. And as far as we can tell SS2017 is going to be a summer of practical style. Extra pockets, tiny bags that come in handy, boiler suits and trenchcoats; items that clearly serve a certain cause, make up for some of the biggest trends. How designers translated that into stylish yet effortless summer wear? You’re about to find out in our 7 SS2017 menswear trends recap.

One for your keys, one for your phone, one for your cash money, one for your notebook and one that fits your lip gloss; fact is you can never have enough extra pockets. You know it and Givenchy, Hermes and Moncler Gamme Bleu definitely know it. Next summer we love them big and up front. Who needs a handbag anymore?

Utilitarian or not; boiler suits are a thang for next year. No more outfit stress with this onepiece; this fashion item will take you anywhere you need to go. From grocery shopping to bar hopping. Balenciaga, Hermes and Louis Vuitton already showed you how. Shaggy or chic; hand in your pockets and just give it a try! Again: enough pockets, so leave your man bag at home.

Fendi, Balmain, Balenciaga are all joining a good game of power dressing for SS2017. Suit jackets you can live in with shoulders that reach the sky and overcoats that easily fit your partner in as well. We have to admit Balenciaga gave us some Frankenstein creeps at first, but after that oversize red velvet suit (that made us crave some red velvet cake) we got a hang of it. From tight tanktops to XL suits; next summer is all about extremes.

Streetwise and super safe; if you got your game on, you wear your tiny shoulder bag on your chest. The boys in the hood have been doing it for years and now Givenchy, Moncler Gamme Bleu and Louis Vuitton are picking it up too. Just make sure you have a casual flow to match your it bag and you’ll go from tourist freak to ghetto chic.

The trenchcoat. It’s the only coat you’d wanna wear during summertime. Of course keeping notice you prefer not wearing any coat in summer at all. It’s flattering, practical and timeless. And even though the trenchcoat has never really been gone, designers (the likes of Dior, Dries van Noten, Louis Vuitton are bringing back this trend big time now. In classic camel or exotically printed; the trench effect in full swing.

Blending in is hot this season and it will still be one year from now. That is, if we follow up on Givenchy and Dries van Noten’s style advice. Both brands are bringing camouflage prints back to the table. Yet, the camo has certainly received an update. Mixed with other prints in the same color palette is the way to wear this army (war?) inspired print in twelve months. A camouflage mix, so to speak.
