Bust out the prints and add some spunk to your wardrobe as the prints trend spills all over menswear labels in Singapore.
Out with the plain tees and in with the prints. Men have been hit by the print bug as we see a surge of experimental and fun prints, colours and patterns all over the streets and men’s fashion labels in Singapore – not that we’re complaining! Read on to see how you can join the prints trend for men.
Brought to you by the folks behind Monument Lifestyle, the idea behind this fresh local clothing line exudes the unique spirit of the Duxton neighbourhood. Sure the label does plain tees and basics brilliantly, but we’ve got a thing for The Mikey range of shirts, which channels the kooky and inner child with funky cool patterns. Think vibrant palm trees and fabrics sourced from Japan.
Duxton, 75 Duxton Rd, Singapore 089534
Case in point: Deboneire is the go-to label for the discerning gentleman but who says you can’t add some visual flair to the mix? Exquisite tailoring and quality fabrics aside, look to this menswear label for majolica patterns from the Renaissance era, medallion prints and birds of paradise motifs. Too “out there” for you? Start with a pocket square or tie to keep up your style credentials.
Deboneire, Available online
