Detail Analysis: Burberry Prorsum Resort 2015 had a very fascinating approach to the utilization of trim. It’s almost as Christopher Bailey’s inspiration for this collection is nature due to the fact that all of the skirts presented resemble elements from nature. Photos from: Style.com
Adding more than just a “Pop of Color”, Christopher Kane’s spring ’15 Men’s collection may have well resemble a Crayola Crayon Box. We, at TrimLab, chose the top six looks that really spoke to us, screaming out “color!” Christopher Kane is known for adding that needed pop of color, but this collection takes it to another level.

What is spring without color? After enduring a long dreadful winter it would be obsurd NOT to break out into some color. Even for men, color is essential. With men’s spring 2015 fashion week still booming, we’ve managed to scope out trend (that is kind of obvious) at Richard James, Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane.

Trend Alert: Sportswear. Recently, we have all watched as active wear makes its way down runways during fashion week.

This Spring and Summer, Menswear trends feature The Tunic, Relaxed Suiting, and Florals. The tunic is a garment that dates back to the earliest of times, being one of the most historically fashionable pieces. This trend boards includes an updated tunic for men designed by Umit Benan, J.W. Anderson, and Christophe Lemaire. Think of it as “The Tunic with a Twist!” Whenever you think about a suit, you think about a crisp, clean looking gentleman who is uncomfortable. Giorgio Armani, Lanvin, and Ermenegildo Zegna offer a different approach when it comes to suiting making it more relaxed. And what is Spring and Summer fashion without a little flower power? Think flowers are girly? Think again! Ann Demeulemeester, Gucci and Ami blur the lines between masculinity and femininity this season introducing a touch of florals in a man’s wardrobe making it possible for a man to still look masculine covered in flowers.

Detail Analysis: Stella McCartney Ready-to-Wear F/W 2014:
Stella McCartney debuted her FW 2014 collection early March of 2014 in Paris. Every look down to the last was absolutely gorgeous, but what really intrigued us at TrimLab was McCartney’s intricate use of embroideries and zippers.

Functional or non-functional, we are obsessed with the zipper detail! As the models glided down the runway, the zippers served as a guide for the eyes of the audience around the garment through what appears as a hypnotic labyrinth. McCartney also created the same effects using colorful thread that are frayed at the ends. The use of this technique provides a subtly bold statement, adding on to the already perfected garments that were showcased.
