Spring/summer 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting season for men's style. As the collections start to roll out, the idea of dressing loudly and in head-to-toe patterns is becoming a more tangible concept—even if it scared people at first.
Opening Ceremony, never a brand to take a dull approach to clothing, has scoured Korea for inspiration for its upcoming collection, and created a collection as diverse as the Asian peninsula. Designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon started the collection with pieces familiar to anyone in the menswear scene, and then totally flipped the script. There are pants with multiple colored panels, asymmetrical jackets, and even a range of jacquard prints inspired by South Korea's national bird, the Korean magpie. But don't miss out on the next-level jackets that play with proportion or have sleeves that give the garments depth by using multiple-materials. And if you're brave enough to wear shorts, there are more than a few swagged-out options.
However, it doesn't end there. The focus of the collection should be towards the printed sweatshirts and slim-cut sweatpants. If everyone will continue to get cozy next spring, these options will find themselves at the top of style world. We'll have to wait and see.
