The trend has been spotted on the menswear runways this season. Dior Homme showed men in blazers with nothing underneath, while Ann Demeulemeester saw one model striding down the runway in a floral blouse that was completely unbuttoned. At Études the look took on a workwear vibe (think, overalls and a bare chest). Off the runway, British heartthrob Harry Styles has embraced the look, letting his long hair graze his collarbone in louche, unfastened shirts.
As New York Fashion Week draws to a close, we’ve analysed every catwalk so far and narrowed down NY spring/summer 2018 offering to the following. Polished Asymmetry Hemlines first started zig-zagging in spring/summer 2017 and if the New York shows are anything to go by, the reign of the hanky skirt isn’t over yet. The Nineties staple was seen at 3.1 Phillip Lim, where it was rendered less Ibiza hippie and more Uptown cool in white embroidered cotton, graphic stripes and navy pinstripes on mid-length skirts paired with matching tops and floaty spaghetti strap dresses.
