Latest Trend: Africlash

May 21, 2012

According to TOPMAN, the latest trend for May and June is….. ‘Africlash‘.


An explosion of tribal African prints with modern and traditional designs colliding for a contemporary vibe. Inspired by multi-cultural cities, the dressed-up attitude of festival goers and the infiltration of digitally enhanced imagery, the trend is bang up to date and feels edgy and alive. Layer stripy space-dyed knits over bright and bold boxy tees and African print shirts with rolled-hem chinos or contrast patterned Bermuda shorts for perfect urban clash style.

I like the idea of the ‘clash’. It’s a great mixture of basics match married to graphic prints, giving just a little spark of Africa! TOPMAN has pulled together a number of pieces under this trend, giving a lot of room for a guy to mix’n’match and create new looks.
