Top Men’s Fall 2017 Trends: Technical Pullovers

All-Weather Windbreakers

With so much focus on climate change and natural disasters, it makes sense that the fall menswear collections highlighted technical outerwear. Water resistant windbreakers and shearling pullovers made an appearance on all the major runways, such as Balenciaga, Dior Homme, and Lanvin. Designers broke from the luxury norm to adapt to the growing trend of athletic wear and included quarter zip pullovers.

The cold-weather staple ranged from skintight base layers at Fendi to oversized leather pullovers with utilitarian front pockets at Agi & Sam and Hugo Boss. New York designers John Elliott and Patrik Ervell went old school and used classic fleece in neutral gray and navy for an added touch of comfort. Fleece and shearling sweatshirts are better fitted to athletic looks, but the aforementioned windbreakers were thrown over suits ready for the morning commute or paired with neutral trousers for a more casual vibe. The versatility of this season’s pullover are endless.
