Time for a little lookbook update from fashion giant Zara, it’s mens collection for SS17 is going to go wild for stripes. Nothing groundbreaking here for the season, but given Zara’s recent penchant for dark menswear collections this is a refreshing change. This lookbook is all about lightweight layering, clashing stripes and one of the biggest menswear trends for SS17 – pink. Pink is in this year and in a big way, everyone from high end fashion houses to global sports brands are embracing pink within menswear. Baby pink features here in outerwear making it more of a statement piece, very brave but definitely a easy look if you wear light layers underneath – making the pink the main statement. The collection has a utility feel to it, with many layers and pockets within most looks – building on the urban explorer theme that started to emerge in AW17. Menswear is embracing the athleisure mood but adding an edge of masculinity with elements of workwear, duster coasts, work shirts and waterproof elements being key examples. Definitely a big fan of Zara embracing the idea of a spring clean, out with the old dark looks an in with versatile, wearable looks.
