Styling for rainy days in spring, 28 January 2015
Outdoor style for sunny rainy days in spring
It isn't a secret that the functionality of sports wear becomes more and more part of daily urban 'couture'. Recently, US designer Phillip Lim presented in Paris the new FW2015/16 men's wear with references to the functionality of mountaineers' clothes (interview). The trend is influenced by two facts: the wearer who uses urban mobility increasingly as sports activity (cycling, walking), and secondly by the fact that high-tech fabrics and manufacturing methods aren't only following the reason of functionality but fulfill the requirements of interesting textile surfaces and clothing technology for fashion products. Sometimes, nowadays fashion items appear almost like experimental creations from a couture studio such as the rain jacket in 1960s plastic style by the Italian label Colmar. The jacket is made of a water-resistant nylon fabric and make think of mid-60s couture by Courrèges. Colmar combines the rain jacket with short trousers in sky and watery blues. Fashionoffice collected some additional pieces for an urban couture-inspired outfit on sunny rainy days in upcoming spring (pictures below).
