Winter will soon be winding down, but in stores, spring has sprung. The menswear revolution continues as luxury brands from Prada to The Elder Statesman experiment with bold styles and modern silhouettes. Free yourself from the chino short and polo shirt with our spring picks from SSENSE:
JW Anderson Black Loafer Mules
These leather loafers strike the right balance between your Birkenstock clogs and Gucci Princetowns. They’re cool and contemporary without being too flashy, and are sure to put a *spring* in your step. $690.
Givenchy White Twill Blazer
A white blazer is a great seasonal piece to wear, say, at a spring wedding or courtside at Wimbledon. Dress it up with a floral button-up or with a light t-shirt and jeans. Three-button blazers also happen to be super popular right now. $3705.
Missoni Orange & Multicolour Striped Long Sleeve Polo
Family-owned Italian label Missoni is best known for its kaleidscopic knitwear. This long-sleeve polo is an ultra-luxurious update on a classic polo shirt, but you can wear to Bonnaroo, too. $550.
The Elder Statesman Navy & Purple Tie-Dye Jeans
The Elder Statesman is the LA-based brand beloved by Malibu surf dads and celebrities alike. Designer Greg Chait has a knack for using artisanal production with bold graphics, like these hand-dyed slim-fit jeans. $725.
Dior Silver & Grey DiorInclusion Sunglasses
Dior has been making some of the coolest sunglasses on the market. And these rimless sun specs are just futuristic enough without making you look like a UFO hunter. $595.
Lemaire Black Denim Trucker Jacket
French designer Christophe Lemaire puts a Parisian spin on traditional menswear. The black trucker is a spring staple, and Lemaire’s minimal hardware and slightly cropped fit up the luxury ante on a workwear classic. $750.
Prada Black Gabardine Bermuda Shorts
Bermuda shorts are back in a big way, and no one does them better than Prada. The nylon gabardine material is a house signature, and and the jet black colour lets you wear them with anything. $970.
Gucci Multicolour Silk Compass Rose Shirt
Camp-collar shirts have been major trend in the past few years. And this Gucci silk piece hits all the right notes with its slightly oversized fit and nautical graphic – very poolside-in-Capri. $1750.
Bottega Veneta Grey Nylon Trench Coat
Daniel Lee’s #NewBottega is the hottest brand on the block. Lee has infused the 54-year-old Italian leather house with new energy, experimenting with technical innovation and performance materials to craft a progressive vision of masculinity. And this trench ticks all those boxes: it looks cool as hell and will keep you dry. $2225.
Loewe Off-White & Navy Wool Striped Sweater
Everything Jonathan Anderson touches turns to gold. The British designer behind both his namesake label JW Anderson and Spanish luxury house Loewe is deeply committed to craft, and this sweater is no exception. The intricate jacquard knit and wool-blend sweater is roomy but not too big, and is a nod to Anderson’s obsession with nautical motifs. Whether you’re vacationing in the British countryside of yachting in Spain, this sweater is a spring must-have. $1200.
