Zara have been all over the news lately with record profits, store launches and expansion rumours – perfect opportunity to catch up with their latest menswear lookbook for SS16. Zara have become the world’s biggest fashion retailer due to their ability to streamline production, they can get trends from the catwalk to your local store in under two weeks which is a staggering accomplishment for a retailer so big. Retaining as much production as possible in their home country of Spain they can mirror the latest fashion house styles and bring them to you at their market leading prices. This lookbook is no different, eastern influences have been huge at fashion weeks with silk shirts and printed bombers hitting runways around the world – Zara have been able to get them out in time for spring, a good 6 months ahead of most competitors who will be launching them for their AW collections. The colour palette here is nice and neutral with a big focus on masculine tailoring, this is then broken up by the colour and femininity of the silk pieces. I like that Zara trial elements of womens trends within their menswear and feel it helps open up their products to such a wide audience, another reason why the manage to go from strength to strength every season. If you’re after some style sophistication this spring this lookbook is definitely for you.
