Fall 2013 Trends From London Collections: Men

From gentlemanly pocket squares and luxe leather gloves to the humble roll neck and gilet, take a look at the trends men will be toting for autumn/winter 2013.

From burnt orange coats to flame-coloured gloves, designers littered the capital with sunset hues this week. The message: the brighter the better.

Forget bulky winter coats, next autumn is all about the neat bomber for men. Embrace the trend fully with contrasting collar and hem, or in an iridescent sheen.

Whether your headwear channels a distinctly flat cap-meets-beret country vibe or takes a more artistic tilt, make sure Paris is your sartorial port of call.

Patterned, fur-lined or bomber-style: the item that was once only worn as a last-ditch attempt to keep warm has been given a sartorial makeover. Prepare to zip up.

One of the most gentlemanly accessories, the pocket square is back. Bright, contrasting colours, as seen at Christopher Raeburn, make for maximum style points.

Prepare to make friends with chunky knits around your neck fellas; the humble turtle neck is back with a vengeance.

Lapels and suit pockets have been given some colourful attention for autumn. Match your under layer to your lapel colour or stand out with a lick of something striking on your suit.

Monotone shoes will soon be a thing of the past, according to the London Collections: Men designers. Treat your brogues to a zingy orange casing, as seen at Agi & Sam, or give loafers a clean white rim, like Richard Nicholl.

Woolly gloves are out for winter 2013; make yours leather in deep burgundy or sunshine yellow hues. Oh, and add a little frill, like J.W. Anderson’s feminine wares, if you dare.
