These February 2016 fashion trends range from selfie supermodel ads to Middle Eastern couture collections. When it comes to the month's most notable fashion campaigns, standouts include gender-fluid clothing ads like the latest offering by Louis Vuitton.

The iconic brand enlisted Will Smith's son Jaden to star in its latest advertorial in which he dons a skirted ensemble. Blurring gender lines, this example and others like Moschino's latest menswear collection promote ambiguous dressing that blends masculine and feminine qualities.

When examining the month's top menswear looks, examples include candid subculture editorials and futuristic punk runways. The picks oppose minimalism and instead promote craftsmanship and DIY experimentation. Rounding off this list of February 2016 fashion trends is shoppable catwalk experiences and branded grooming events that speak to consumers' growing desire for artisanal personal care products and services that specially cater to men.
