For Spring Summer season 2018, we envisage interesting news on the ffield of men’sfashion, starting with the creation of some masculine classics. Costume jacket and trousers and ties, in fact, will be destined – at least for now – to stay in the closet in favor of a more casual look, that is the tracksuit.

Not only at Pitti Uomo in June 2017, but also in the latest fashion shows in Milan and Paris this new trend has emerged, which will be confirmed in the next season. The variations will be many, but all focused on the same spirit and in the sign of the fabulous ’90s.

The tracksuit, therefore, re-earns new enamel and unlocks the value of its history. A few peopla, in fact, know that his birth dating back to the first decades of the 1900s is attributed to an Italian idea, then launched in 1919 by the futurist movement. The first sports version comes to life only in 1967 thanks to the Adidas brand that gives life to the unforgettable first technical fabric model.

On the latest fashion runways at the international level, the gymnastic uniform refers much to the films that have marked the history of cinema. How can we forget, in this regard, Bruce Lee in the 1973 film, “Game of Death”, in yellow tracksuit with black stripes?

Not only sports brand but also the fashion houses known for their refined and elegant style have decided to stake everything on the tracksuit, highlighting the success of this piece of clothing for the upcoming summer season. An example worthy of note is Valentino which, under the artistic direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli showed off acetates fabrics, rich colours and contrasting stripes. Even Prada focuses on technical fabrics, while Donatella Versace relies entirely on the choice of colours: blue, pink and glitter gold. Among the latest proposals also the printed ones that have the signatures of Cottweiler, Palm Angels, What we wear, while more refined the silk versions of Ermenegildo Zegna and chenille Plein Sport.
