Menswear designers are feeling the blues this spring with vivid cobalt as a strong contender to take the title of colour of the season. The good news is it’s definitely easier to work into your wardrobe than the fluoro tones showcased on the runways.

The coloured suit is a good option for the sartorially confident man for summer occasions and Kenzo suggests contrasting primary brights in a plain blue suit paired with red, meanwhile Dolce & Gabbana went all-out with embellishment on a smoking jacket and matching trousers. As an alternative, Dries Van Noten showed how to wear these rich blue tones in a more casual way with relaxed fit pieces. Emulate this with a striking blue t-shirt or sweater with blue jeans.
