Les Hommes Men’s Spring 2017

According to show notes, Les Hommes’ spring collection was inspired by the Spanish conquest of South America. But apart from the tribal motifs embroidered on bomber jackets and sweatshirts, creative directors Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch didn’t explore the theme in-depth. In fact, they seemed to channel a more generic military inspiration.

Cargo trousers and short pants were combined with fishnet tops and outerwear with functional pockets for an Army-like feel. This was enhanced by the accessories, which included sling bags evoking bulletproof vests. The lineup also included brocade suits, which felt a tad out of place, no matter what the conquest.
