If you don’t already know that prints are set to be a huge menswear trend this spring/summer 2012, we have one question for you – where have you been? Both designer collections and the high street have been inundated with printed releases over the past few weeks, in anticipation for a season that looks set to be one of the most colourful and striking yet.
Marc By Marc Jacobs is the latest big name advocate of the printed shirt, showing his allegiance with the release of this short sleeved, all over Bird Print version.
We know many of our readers will cower away from the thought of printed garments – donning them tasteless, loud and attention seeking. But trust us; with the right piece and worn correctly, this is one trend that you should definitely get involved in. (For tips on how to pull off this trend with ease, check out Paul McGregor’s dedicated article on how to wear printed shirts.)
When we came across this bird print shirt, we just had to showcase it. We felt that this particular design will appeal to the masses, managing to effortlessly incorporate this season’s key trend in a much more subtle and tasteful way. This allows the less daring amongst you to rock the statement look, without causing too much of a stir or taking you too far out of your comfort zone.
Coming in a deep shade of blue with contrasting red buttons, this shirt definitely deserves a place in your wardrobe this season.
