We are happy to announce our new blog category „Men Fashion Accessories”. Stay tuned as TheSocks bring you the latest trends in male fashion accessories for men who mean business. And to kick-off, we have our friends from Michel Herbalin with the male watch trends for autumn–winter 2013.
Make a Bold Style Statement
When it comes to making a bold style statement, every detail matters, right down to the wrists. That’s why watch experts Michel Herbalin have given us the rundown on some of the key men’s watch trends for the Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion season.
In The Navy
This durable and masculine colour scheme is a favourite this season, with Burberry’s new Britain collection featuring the colour trend almost entirely throughout, and Ebel bringing together the navy face and metallic strap to form a truly stunning timepiece. This colour trend offers the opportunity for the modernized man to make a sophisticated yet still refined statement.
From the depths of the navy wrist wear trend we can see another more daring theme emerging. The denim trend can be found in varying styles in the A/W range as well as some promising pieces being spotted in the new collections by Guess and Hublot, allowing for a more daring statement to be made, or simply opt for a more subtle nod towards the larger denim fashion trend sweeping the A/W men’s collections currently.
A trend that has recently been made famous by Rolex and Michael Kors but to name a few, it would seem the rose gold statement has had an even bolder makeover. There is now a very clear trend emerging in which steel and rose gold are seen to mix in varying styles, creating a superiorly stylish look for the modern masculine wrist. Our favourites of this trend include the Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Grande Date and the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980.
Shades of Grey
Another very clean cut, masculine style for the modern man is the grey on grey theme. Where as in previous trends you very rarely find a grey strap paired with grey face and features, in this trend we see varying shades of grey matched together in an industrial style. The Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement watch mechanics are displayed in an eye-shaped window in addition to other decorate gears, giving it a firmly industrialised feel. For those less inclined to such a harsh statement, more simplistic styles include the Dior Chiffre Rouge A02 and the Rado Diamaster Ceramic.
This trend is a sort of spin off from the much more brash recent fashion trend where ‘safety orange’ was the colour. Yet nobody could really bring themselves to do the full dazzling trench coat or block orange trousers. Well this trend gives as bold or as subtle a nod towards the orange colour trend as you choose, with some watches such as the TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 ACM Limited Edition featuring a vivid orange strap, where as others hint at it more subtly with flecks of orange on the face and dial, or smaller blocks of orange in the strap.
