cocosa.comMENSWEAR SS36TRIBALWho wouldn't want to be in Christopher Bailey's tribe for SS12? Playing with raffi a and texture, Burberry Prorsum led the way with a riot of appliqués and African prints. The tribal trend spread (like an African bushfi re) and was seen at Lanvin on ethnic-print trousers and beaded accessories, and at Christopher Shannon, who used afro combs as striking tribal headdresses. Tribal is about blending diff erent references, colours and prints, creating a balance that works.THE MENSWEAR TREND REPORTMarcus Jaye, creative director of blog The Chic Geek, picks out the essential trends in his defi nitive guide to SS12 menswear OLYMPIAThere's always a 'sports luxe' trend in any menswear season, but this year, with the London Olympics, it's hard to avoid. Vivienne Westwood took a literal direction with printed medals and laurels on tops, while Thom Browne at Moncler Gamme Bleu served up a preppy technicality. Louis Vui on even managed to make crocodile skin sporty in blouson form, and E Tautz looked back to an Olympics before the age of Lycra, with collegiate jumpers and drawstring trousers.SPRINGSMARTIf you only buy one thing this season, make it the summer double-breasted jacket. This one item pulls everything together. Wear with a T-shirt or pair of shorts, and you'll look instantly 'dressed'. Topman Design teamed the jacket with pyjama bo oms, Hardy Amies paired it with tailored short shorts and Z Zegna's version was cropped with four bu ons. Look for summer fabrics such as co on and linen with details like diff erent-coloured bu ons and linings. BELOWTHEWAISTAll the action is going on below the waist for SS12. Prada showed a psychedelic golf-inspired collection of daisies and fl ower prints and Lanvin went tribal with chic batik. Givenchy headed to paradise with a strelitzia frenzy. To make it work, keep the top half plain and simple and let the trousers do the talking. If you feel this is a li le too much, you could also go for solid block colours in primary brights or strong pastel shades.BURBERRYPRORSUMCHRISTOPHERSHANNON NVINVIVIENNEWESTWOODMONCLERGAMMEBLEUE TAUTZTOPMANDESIGNZZEGNAHARDYAMIESPRADAGIVENCHYBURBERRYPRORSUM
