Now Trending: Global-Inspired Attire

Pajama stripes and spicy shades conjure far-flung locales

Words and Styling by ALISON EDMOND


Anticipating a loose and easy wardrobe for this summer? Look no further than the global-inspired pieces from the Men’s Spring 2020 runway. From chic pajama stripes at Salvatore Ferragamo, oversize pleat silks at Saint Laurent and tile-printed suits at Gucci, there is a distinctly relaxed mood, accessorized with a layering of classic jewelry styles, wrapped sandstorm scarves, leather sandals or slippers, topped off with retro-looking sunglasses a la Paul Bowles (or John Lennon, if you are musically inclined). Spiced up with a palette of colors ranging from saffron and cumin to turmeric and paprika, this trend is a classic recipe for a stylish season.
