Fashion is in the details, and one of the meticulous details for menswear in Spring 2010 is piping along the borders of clothing.
Also called trim, piping is narrow and outlines the garment. It is a fun matchy-matchy detail that adds flare to a piece of clothing.
For Spring 2010 piping was visible on the runways of D&G, Dries Van Noten, Emporio Armani, Ferragamo, John Galiano, Moschino, Lanvin, and Dolce and Gabbana.
Implications - It is very reminiscent of 80s fashions, which include similar piping on the details of formal garments. Piping is a nice feature to fashionable frocks, adding a punch of color and a crisp outline to your outfit. Pick up piping and see how your ensembles come to life.
