‘Desert Hues’ is a refreshing new trend for the summer season based around light, subtle colours and patterns inspired by travel and safari – to get you in the sunny-season spirit. If bright colours aren’t your thing then this relaxed new trend is the perfect alternative for a look that still says ‘summer’. Light browns, beige, olive and off-whites paired with distressed or washed denim make up the DNA of this super-chilled trend. Check out our ‘Desert Hues’ Lookbook below for a bit of inspiration on how to kick-start this new summer look.

Many of the menswear designers who are leading the way with this trend are naming the legendary Desert Rats of 1939-1945 as their source of inspiration, bringing a more than well-deserved spotlight on their heroic story and history. Take a look at our previous blog on the War Heroes that inspired SS/16’s biggest trend here.
