Men’s fall fashion trends: revisting the 1970s.


They say that good style never goes out of fashion. Whether the ‘70s had style or not is surely in the eye of the beholder. What is undisputable, though, is that certain trends of that era keep popping back onto the runways and into mainstream fashion. This year is not an exception; shades of brown and burgundy, along with velvet, are making a remarkable comeback. Let us delve into this flashback to a bygone era to see what’s hot. We will help you find the best Chopard watch to go with this fall’s fashion trends.

This colour has emerged as the new navy or black, a staple of the biggest shows. A transitional colour that bridges the bolds of summer to the more subdued winter palette, this warm shade ranges from tones of wine to purple. A comforting colour, it can be as discreet as it is flashy, depending on what you wear it on and with. Try a burgundy tie paired with a navy blue suit for a classic look, or even a full burgundy suit for the more daring. Only your imagination will limit your choices. Add a splash of this season’s hottest colour to your wrist with the L.U.C XPS in 18-carat rose gold and a claret-coloured dial. The ultimate expression of classicism, it is discreet and elegant in both its design and its size, with a thickness of only 7.13 mm. Boasting a 65-hour power reserve, it certainly will keep you on time, and with the times.

Often seen as out-dated and boring, all shades of brown were proudly displayed on this year’s runways. From the darker chocolate brown across the spectrum towards the tones of burgundy mentioned above, many designers incorporated this hue into their collections. Try brown suede shoes for more relaxed events, and don’t forget to match your belt to the shoe colour. The other classic staple of men’s wardrobes, the trench coat, is available in endless shades of tan, beige, or khaki. Also, try pairing a warm-coloured turtleneck sweater with a brown suede jacket. Here, the18-carat rose gold L.U.C Quattro watch with a brown dial is a classic yet distinctive way to follow the colour trend. The large 43 mm-diameter case houses the L.U.C Calibre 98.01-L, giving this watch an impressive 9-day power reserve.

Along with corduroy, this material was widely seen across the major designers’ collections. From tailored fit brown corduroy trousers to burgundy-coloured velvet blazers, there was an amazing marriage of fabrics and colours. Remember: finer corduroy fabric for more formal occasions, and wider for more casual settings. Classic oxford shoes or even a suede boot in a darker brown perfectly complement your corduroy pants. Wear the classic L.U.C 1937 timepiece with its 18-carat rose-gold case and a silver sunburst dial and you simply can’t go wrong. The applied rhodium Roman numerals and transferred minute track represent the ultimate in classic style. Chronometer-certified by the COSC, the L.U.C Calibre 01.01-L is visible through the transparent case back.

These are just some of our recommendations for the best watches for this fall’s trends. We invite you to discover the whole range of our L.U.C timepieces for further inspiration.
