Menswear Trend for Autumn/Winter 2012: Fabric Blocking

If colour blocking has been a very popular trend for both women’s and men’s wear over the last couple of years, fabric panelling or blocking has emerged as a new and inspirational trend during the menswear shows in Milan and Paris.

In the shape of layered fabrics or patchwork effects of contrasting textures or of textiles of the same colour in the same garment, fabric panelling or blocking is a very welcome creative device for menswear. At The Style Examiner, we very much look forward to examining the diverse manifestations of what we expect to be one of the most popular trends on the high street for Autumn/Winter 2012.
