In comparison to women’s fashion, the look of menswear barely changes from year to year, and even generation to generation. But well-dressed men are aware that the best makers of menswear update their collections constantly. A global demand for luxury fuels the addition of such decadent touches as fur, exotic skins and limited edition items in collections.
The Italians remain the undisputed leaders in the luxury menswear arena, and Elite Traveler Editors’ twice-a-year visits to their showrooms and trade show displays reveal what stylish men will want to wear in the months ahead. To bring in the new collections the Italians have produced, Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine, has released The Italian Menswear Guide at www.elitetraveler.com. The comprehensive editorial guide previews collections that men will be wearing next fall/winter and is designed for elite travelers and the magazine’s typical reader who flies by private jet.
Over 40 of the most exclusive Italian labels are featured, including Isaia Napoli, Kiton, and Stefano Ricci.
The guide talks about the hot trends for men when the temperature drops – including:
-The three-piece suit
-Elbow patches on sport coats
-Knitwear as light as a cloud.
-Prince of Wales plaid
-Detachable fur collars and linings on outerwear
-High-tech performance fabrics
-Exotic skins given a suede finish.
“Private jet travelers are spending $117,000 a year on fashion and accessories,” noted Laura Hughes, Elite Traveler’s Editorial Director, “so this is a great channel for us to reach our fashion-forward readers and let them know about the latest styles and the brands that best represent them.”
