June 2023 | What to look out for at the July show
Curated by industry experts, and continuously evolving inline with industry trends, INDX Man is the UK's premier menswear trade show, offering a market-responsive product mix from over 150 brands, covering apparel, footwear, and accessories.
We caught up with the AIS team responsible for bringing the show together, for a sneak peek at some of the trends and colours visitors can look forward to spotting at the July 2023 show...
For SS24 there's a move away from traditional 'tailoring' with suiting becoming less formal and more versatile. Look out for unstructured blazers, mix & match separates, and the introduction of the tailored short.
Fabrics are lightweight and textured in linen mixes, with the colour palette favouring lighter shades, and the introduction of terracotta and green.
The workwear trend continues into next year, with denim and canvas central to the trend, and a focus on the denim shirt and chore/utility cotton jackets as key staples.
Cargo trousers and utility shorts are essential to the trend, natural fibres and hardwearing fabrics are key, with the colour palette expanding into light browns, greys and greens.
This trend advocates timeless dressing, with the emphasis on luxury fabrics i.e. wool, cottons, and linens, and classic items such as crisp shirting, chinos and casual blazers.
The colour palette is sophisticated, featuring navy, teal, clay, and brown.
With a focus on stylish smart/casual dressing, this trend relies on easy layers and comfort, taking influences from activewear and sports with US graphics.
The colour palette leans to the classic, with flashes of cornflower blue and yellow as refreshing highlights.
Alongside an unrivalled core of key returning lifestyle labels, such as Original Penguin, Wrangler, Lee, Ben Sherman, Weird Fish, Brakeburn, Joe Browns, A fish named Fred, Mos Mosh Gallery, FQ1924, Blend, and Casual Friday, this season's show will see an exciting list of new exhibitors:
Base London | Elliot Rhodes | Esprit | Flockers | Hey Dude | Hush Puppies | Huxley Tanner | Solid | Superga | Ted Baker Sunglasses | TOMs | Veldskoen
