Summer Looks for men!
Fashion’s best summer offerings are a ticket to everywhere (even if you stay in one place)
Nothing inspires wanderlust like being cooped up at home. Luckily, you don’t need to rack up the frequent-flier miles to indulge in the coolest patterns and fabrics from far and wide. Designers are doing it for you. Take Etro, which this summer returns to its first love: paisley, a centuries-old motif with roots in the Middle East but design traditions from pretty much everywhere on earth.
Dressing up doesn’t mean anything close to what it did a few years ago. So why should dressing down? Suddenly, going too casual feels a bit below the bar. Upgraded warm-weather tailoring in whites and neutrals from the likes of Giorgio Armani lets you embrace a little elegance but be comfortable (in both mind and body) as you do it. Whoever said relaxing meant relinquishing your sense of style?
TURN IT UP
Logos may be on the wane in fashion, but some designers are still making strong statements with color and pattern, from over-the-top heraldry and multicolor sneakers at Dolce & Gabbana to high-tech color blocking at Prada. It’s a different breed of bold, designed to catch the eye but not screaming for the wrong kind of attention. If you know, you know.
