Spring Trends – ‘The Jungle Look’
It’s taking time but I am slowly learning to, not only sit down and watch through the entirety of a film, but also to enjoy, appreciate and gain inspiration from them. With several significant films being released this month, it seems appropriate that we acknowledge a couple of them, as the likelihood is that they will be very influential on imminent fashion trends.
Key predicted box office hits are that of the new Jungle Book and Tarzan films (The Jungle Book, and The Legend of Tarzan). The jungle theme can already be seen to be disseminating into retailers for the summer seasons.
FARFETCH are a prime example of how designers have addressed this subject in a multitude of ways.
A favourite has to be how ETRO have used key animals from the jungle in a tonal print on a basic shirt silhouette. The tonal print allows it to be subtle and wearable, whilst remaining an aesthetic, different design. Nice individual design elements include the curved hem and grey-scale matt studs surrounding the bottom of the button placket.
The online retailer is also stocking a Balmain Jungle print, short sleeved round neck t-shirt. With a slightly more artistically abstract block print, this casual piece would look perfect dressed with a casual spring/summer season blazer and chinos.
For this trend Jimmy Choo have adapted their best selling loafer with a refined silhouette. These black and camouflage mirror gunmetal leather loafers made in Italy are the perfect way to add an element of this trend into your every day dressing with something a little different.
To get the full look the designer’s Men’s Cruise 2016 collection also includes matching a travel wallet and cardholder.
Another way you can accessorise to keep up with these Film influences is by purchasing from the Carreram by Jimmy Choo collection. With varying lens options and three differing frame designs; Green camouflage, Sand camouflage and Croc print, these could be perfect for your summer travels, or just to dress to impress this season.
Need to add a new fashionable twist to your signature suit? Well Mr Porter provide an ideal silk twill pocket square by Richard James. The vibrant print conveniently named “summer jungle” is a perfect way to personalise smart wear with an on trend, fresh face. The pocket square has been produced by the finest Italian craftsmen has expertly rolled edges and should be worn in a simple puff fold.
So firstly get yourself to the cinema to view these two forecasted sensations of films and secondly, get shopping.
