For men, it’s the revival of the mod subculture of the 1960s- bringing bohemian sophistication to corporate wear.

Summer trend quotient: 6.5/10

The three looks for women at Sisley (Bianca J, Ethereal Feminity and Earth Pulse) have the Seventies as a vague influence. Bianca J is masculine while being sexy, and Ethereal Feminity is highlighted by sheer fabrics, florals, frills, soft cuts and pastel shades.

For men, there’s the Architectural Man with a classical dress sense, and the Formal Rebel who mixes casual separates with sophistication (think pop-art tee paired with a destructured blazer). For the Urban Mobility look, it’s all about functionality and tech- 3D seams, pockets and little compartments for iPods, mobile phones, earphones and so on.
