LA: Dip Dyed Shirt – Shifting with ease between male and female tailoring, dip dyed effects subvert classic styles for a summer feel. Transitioning from light to dark hues down gradients of shirts and tops, this look embodies the DIY mantra; disrupting the humble shirt with a bespoke effect that epitomizes summer.
London: Denim Biker Jacket – As we welcome summer, and step away from winter warmers, denim invades the biker jacket and makes its way on to the high street. With a biker-inspired revamp, denim jackets sport zips and button detailing, and a classic biker shape. Team with denim shirts and jeans for an all over denim look that infiltrated the catwalk for SS 2010. It’s a toughening up for a wardrobe staple that marries the denim jacket with its fifties heritage. James Dean would approve.
NY: Chiffon Biker – Life with summer interpretations, the biker jacket is hijacked by the post-grunge trend that dominates this season. Ruggedly feminine, the sheer properties are seductive yet tough, and delicate details are replaced with hardy zips and buttons. Wear casual and play with muted color schemes for a relaxed aesthetic that embodies the New York City vibe.
Tokyo: Military Star Shirt – Stars of honor bedeck shirts to give a patriotic riff to menswear. Whether starry studs or embroidered detailing, they take a regimented formation on casual shirts, or as at Givenchy, for a rebellious streak to formal-wear. Style with an all-American frame of mind, button shirts to the collar and team with a versatile ideal, mixing and matching as you feel.
