This season, sleek formals take on a new direction with an emphasis on polished and hi-shine polido leathers. Croc and reptile embossing also feature, with woven detailing adding an extra element to texture for SS16. Hues of brown, navy and grey run throughout the collection. Always a classic wardrobe staple, the loafer dominates the men’s collection for this season, produced in a variety of finishes and colours. Wholecut profiles feature flat waxed laces, giving them a premium finish, while the ever-popular monk-strap features once again.
The Soft Focus trend brings texture, with suede as the key fabric running throughout the collection, featuring on many profiles including desert boots and perforated trainers. Neutral shades work alongside muted brights in a multitude of styles, from casual to sporty, with the core colours being sand, grey and navy with pops of teal and cobalt.
For high summer, the collection takes on the feel of a transatlantic traveller, with the focus falling on lightweight profiles of sandals, espadrilles, drivers and sporty cupsoles. These styles reflect the sartorial confidence of a transatlantic man who is seasoned and sophisticated in his style, someone who is not afraid to be bolder with his wardrobe choices. A colour palette of rich chocolate brown, red, orange and bright blue elevate this trend. Mesh espadrilles sit alongside snake embossed sneakers and premium leather sandals, whilst a lightweight soft brogue provides a pop of colour in cobalt blue and a contrasting sporty white sole.
