Nordstrom in GQ: Considering the Bomber Jacket in 2017

topmanbomber

Did you read our Senior Fashion Director Shannon Schafer in GQ? She was speaking about bomber jackets among a panel of menswear experts, discussing different brands, shapes and colors. An excerpt:

“The bomber jacket trend started with ’90s throwback colors of black and olive for us. Fashion colors quickly gained momentum and now burgundy is our top-selling color.”

You’ll want to read the rest of her entry here.

And while we’re at it: did you read GQ‘s Raf Simons interview? It’s a riveting Q&A with the legendary Belgian designer—and relatedly, our new Adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smith and Ozweego styles are some of the coolest sneakers on the planet. They go great with bomber jackets, too.

3 Ways to Wear Your Logo Tee

If there is one simple, affordable and endlessly wearable item to add to your wardrobe this winter-into-spring, it’s a logo tee. A throwback to ’90s fashion branding, these graphic statement shirts are popping up in the streets, on the runways and on the infobahns of Instagram. Attribute it to the Vetements influence, the continuation of the athleisure movement, increasingly casual clothing options—whatever it is, this relaxed resurgence cannot be ignored.

Our own Fashion Office endorsed the trend thusly: “No longer just for wearing with jean shorts on the weekend, the graphic tee is being seen dressed up on the street and on the runways. Look for everything from vintage rock to kitten silk-screen T-shirts.”

Here are three ways our Fashion Office and the social stars are wearing the tees now. From work to dinner to weekends, this versatile and verbal top speaks for itself in almost any setting.

The Top Ten Trends from London Fashion Week

Across the pond, spring ’16 tugs at the heart with many lust-worthy collections. A soft, romantic mood prevails in fluid, falling-off-the-shoulder dresses, louche slip dresses and blouses soft as a sigh—often cut in asymmetric and askew lines. A modern prettiness cascades with ruffles, seduces with cutouts, layers lightly in long and languid ease—the newest deconstruction. The avant-garde offers a new soft take on futurism in retro galactic looks, featuring orbital lines and technical embellishments. While a 21st-century Gypset migrates across infinite borders in a collage of cultural influences.

All in all, a strong showing of eccentric, artistic, beautifully wearable clothing choices.

There is certainly a movement towards breezy, easy silhouettes and long languid layering. The erogenous zone moves to the shoulder. Relaxed ruffles and flounces enhance femininity with a casual flirtatiousness. A warm raw beauty continues the textural trend in materials. The season’s go-to pieces include a gypset freedom in the mix of print and pattern, a sensual slip dress, something indigo, a convertible bag and a soft shoe.
