At Ease: Spring 2016
April 5, 2016
Perhaps it’s due to natural progression—winter loosening its grip. Or maybe it’s technology—letterheads giving way to email. Whatever the reason, the attitude this season is unquestionably easygoing.
Runways blurred the lines between sportswear and streetwear, with DISTRESSED DENIM and more refined CITY SKATERS taking their place as key players. Neutrals clear the aisle for a splash of CONFIDENT RED. Safari, botanical, camo, even graffiti—FRESH PRINTS make it impossible to take anything too seriously. STRIPES top our shortlist.
If you’re seeking order, MILITARY INFLUENCES deliver in shades of khaki, green, and navy. And while we’re giving commands: THE NEW BOMBER. Invest in one. From Air Force iterations to silk surfer-boy takes—there’s one for every man. Even suiting feels more nonchalant as structure yields to SOFT TAILORING and colorfully BOLD JACKETS. So relax a little—it’s a trend.
