Berthold’s AW17 collection at London Fashion Week Men’s could really be described in one word: oversize. The baggy, large silhouettes that dominated the collection seem to be a coming trend for fall.
We aren’t just seeing a wide-leg pant, of course. The oversize looks are happening in a whole new way, think extra long sleeves dangling beyond fingertips and turtlenecks covering noses, and not just for men, women also walked the runway.
Long and wide overcoats and plastic or fur trenches covered boxy shirts and pants. Large, lengthy tunics cover even larger pants. In an interesting turn, Berthold calls the colors of the collection “polar white, heavy black and bruise.” While BDMOTP would probably label them black, cream and wine/oxblood, Berthold’s creativity and larger than life garments are intriguing, and we are excited to see how this baggy trend will move forward in 2017/18.
