Slick Plaid Suits

Gucci Menswear Spring 2011 is Full of Smart & Polished Pieces

— August 22, 2011 — Fashion
There’s nothing sexier on a man than a sleek, smart suit and the Gucci Menswear Spring 2011 collection is full of them.

With models strutting down the catwalk in expertly crafted, classic, tailor-made pieces, it’s a wonder that men’s fashion includes anything but pantsuits. Among plaid blazers and slick pants were stylish accessories for men, namely bowties and bags. (With so many oversized bags and luggage pieces being toted down the runway, perhaps this is the season in which more men will finally embrace the “murse”?)

The Gucci Menswear Spring 2011 line brings back polished and put-together dressing after many seasons of rugged, messy and overly casual styling. And it’s a welcome return; director Frida Giannini sure knows what men (and women) want.
Trend Themes
1. Classic Tailoring - There is an opportunity for traditional tailoring businesses to thrive by offering their customers sleek and smart suits.
2. Men's Accessories - There is a growing demand for stylish accessories for men such as bowties and bags, providing an opportunity for fashion retailers to target male consumers.
3. Polished Dressing - With a new shift towards polished dressing, innovative designers and fashion brands can create new collections of polished and well-tailored outfits for men and women.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion Industry - The fashion industry can benefit by launching stylish collections that meet the increasing demand for classic tailoring and polished dressing.
2. Retail Industry - Retailers can benefit by offering a wide range of men's accessories, creating products that cater to the growing trend worn alongside a well-tailored suit.
3. Textile Industry - The textile industry can take advantage of the renewed interest in classic style by offering fabrics that are tailored and suitable for polished dressing.
