This month’s trend focuses on various product categories from boyswear for AW18; we take look at how boys clothing is evolving its own identity from directions that have trickled down from men’s wear. Sometimes the boyswear market can be overshadowed by the girlswear market regarding designs, photography and style. However, this is changing and boyswear is gradually moving to the forefront of creative and innovative designs from brands.

Trousers dominate a more relaxed fit with a wide leg. You will see prints and patterns emerging in brands highlighting camouflage, bold stripes and slogan tapes that are intertwined in comfortable jersey knits. Contrast knee patches update both knit and woven trousers. The causal jogger makes an upgrade this season into a smarter constructed version. The use of different materials of denim, cotton –wool blends, stretch denim styles echo the rise of athleisure.

For AW18 boyswear we see tops that are more relaxed; oversized sweatshirts which are loose and comfortable in knit and woven materials. T-shirts combine solid colours with printed panelling and novelty prints create grand statements pieces to mix and match with core basics. Velours emerge on sweatshirts that create an added detail for different shapes.
Top Hat – Without Tails
For this season, vibrant shirts have a playful novelty. Small or large scale prints are placed on dark backgrounds. This makes prints come alive, making a bold and colourful piece in your son’s wardrobe which can be worn with their core basics. Prints to look out for are hand-illustrated scrawls, animal repeats, abstract digital prints and two-tone stars.
Military Mod – Heritage Badges
The traditional shirting jacket this season is updated with military-style evoking heritage badges and pleated pockets. This style is playful and can be upgraded with cool, warm tones of Olive and traditional dark hues.
