Fall 2009 Men's Trend Report: Rich Velvet

Jan 27 2009 - 11:04am

Velvet made its rounds through womenswear in the Fall 08 season [1] and there's no saying the trend won't repeat itself, especially if the Fall 2009 menswear shows [2] have anything to do with it. This season, somber as it may have been, velvet cropped up on jackets and trousers in a diverse array of colors. Perhaps designers knew that this luxe texture would balance out those otherwise black and monochromatic [3] looks. Our favorites, below.
