Says Men’s Health Fashion Editor Azeez Jacobs; “Key this season are textured jackets, sharp and lightweight tailoring and a general sense of youthful subversion. There will also be an athletic thread, sweatshirt fabrics and sweat shorts for summer. Denim will also dominate the runway, but this time we’ll get to see edgier and lighter versions. Don’t forget about colour this season, it’s still going strong, from brights to pastels and muted tones. “
The brands that graced the runway were: Woolworths David Jones, Woolworths Edition, Woolworths Studio W, Country Road, TM Lewin, Duca Del Cosma collaborating with local designer Craig Jacobs, Ramsay, Kappa, Guess, Soviet, Polo and Antony Morato showcasing their SS18 collections for men.
