MEN’S COLLECTION FALL/WINTER 2016-17

NAUTICAL LOOK

 

This start-of-season theme cleverly combines the aesthetics of 1990s nautical graphics with the modernity of colour blocks.

 

Looks with refined lines and strong colours for a successful start to the year between classicism and contemporary elegance.

 

COLOURS
Primary colours are mixed with a nuanced palette of blues and natural colours.

 

GRAPHICS
Bold stripes, colour blocks and graphics are borrowed from sailing.

 

MATERIALS
Combining strength and lightness, nylon technical fabrics stand side by side with twill, jacquard and cotton knit.

 

STAND-OUT GARMENTS
Lightweight blue cotton jacquard shirt to be worn with jeans for a total casual denim look, a navy three-quarter-length trench coat for a more urban look can be worn over a T-shirt with wide red-white-and-blue stripes and the heavy piqué graphic polo shirt can be combined at a push with suit trousers.
Note: the polo shirt decorated with a rubber crocodile and a three-colour graphic collar which brings the sporting spirit of the 1990s back into fashion.

 

FRENCH FLAIR

This second theme reflects the soberness of traditional tennis codes: tennis stripes, pleated fabrics and an embroidered crocodile refer back to the brand’s history.

 

COLOURS
Bordeaux, blue, green and grey tones dominate.

 

GRAPHICS
Tennis stripes, all-over kinetic prints and micro-patterns.

 

MATERIALS
Wool knit and cotton piqué reflect the brand’s heritage in a collection whose simplicity is enhanced by subtle details.

 

STAND-OUT GARMENTS
To stroll the streets in complete relaxation, minimum chic is essential. The grey wool teddy jacket can be word with a micro-patterned polo shirt and bordeaux chino trousers. The tennis stripes are edged with black to underline the sporty elegance of a polo shirt. For timeless style, a three- quarter-length trench coat can be worn over a tennis-striped sweater while a hybrid padded jacket/overcoat can be worn with a striped sports polo shirt and suit trousers.

 

Combining heritage and modernity, the navy blue blazer embroidered with the crocodile hints at the one worn on tennis courts by René Lacoste.

 

ZERO DEGREES

This mid-winter theme proves that comfort can have style. The materials are cosy and padded and superimposition is essential.

 

COLOURS
Winter colours such as deep blues, bordeaux, grey and khaki are lit up by touches of bright colours such as yellow, blue and red.

 

GRAPHICS
Abstract camouflage print, caviar print and coloured piping have been chosen to bring this collection to life.

 

MATERIALS
Technical fabrics and thick solid-coloured or milled wools guarantee warmth and authenticity.

 

STAND-OUT GARMENTS
The winter cold offers a showcase for coats: a padded technical jacket, an ingeniously cut two-tone parka, a padded jacket with collar/lapels and flap pockets borrowed from blazers, a square padded teddy jacket or a textured safari jacket. So many options which can be worn with elegance to combat the urban cold or mountain snows. They harmonise perfectly with loose- fitting wool or tweed trousers for resolutely chic and casual looks.
