Novi Sad, Serbia – The total look is the key leimotif in the new collection by Serbian menswear designer Bosko Jakovljevic. Titled “DECADENCE“, the new outing is an obvious ode to color.
While most designers tone down the rhetoric in their collections for the cold months of the year, this is far from the direction in which Bosko Jakovljevic takes us into as we head into Fall Winter 2016/17. He opts not only just for color, but for some of the boldest and brightest imaginable in menswear. Here we find red, blue, pink, deep lilac, green, etc. add to his tailored suits. Here the trousers have traditional cuts. The blazers often have three pockets and are finished with slim lapels. The designer does add more casual chic pieces for those occasion when a man wants to feel relaxed but needs to looks good.
Where the collection lacks in terms of variety of cut, it makes up for it with the way it embraces the use of optimism as seen in the choice of the colors that form the palette.
