Expect cool pastel hues offset with splashes of bold primary colour in our Spring 2012 collection, with classically slim chinos in pale green and blue paired with newly refined short-sleeved shirts and raffish blazers. Accessories are more esoteric, with everything from audiophile headphones from British manufacturer RHA to handcrafted leather bags made right here in New Zealand.
Head of Merchandise Paul Biddle is an avid surfer, and spends every spare minute on or near the water which might go some way to explaining the heavy nautical influence running through the range. A solid canvas in (what else) red, white and blue can be found in both our casual belts and as supporting bands on our new weekender hold all, while our tees lean heavily on stripes and the lean silhouette of the newly-refined chino was born to yacht.
As ever, the key is versatility – micro-print shirts which work equally well with rolled sleeves above a set of slim-cut shorts as they do with a lightweight cotton blazer. Our casual jackets include a seam-sealed waterproof model, which retains our trademark streamlined style, and the four shades of coloured-denim reflect the season’s earth-toned shades.
The collection is both up to the minute and utterly timeless, and will provide the anchor every wardrobe needs – in stores and online now.
