Out of Africa
African inspirations add new vibrancy to SS17 print looks. Tribal geometrics are emboldened by monochrome color-ways and bright accent tones, creating a statement look ideal for high summer shirting, beachwear and accessory applications.
- Traditional African wax print influences
- Monochrome geos give tribal prints a modern appeal
- All-over print looks make an impact
Rainwear is reinvented as a summer essential. Long-line raincoats and anoraks come in semi-sheer plastic or nylon fabrications, lending protective outerwear a lightweight quality and a more transseasonal appeal.
- Outerwear transcends seasonal fashion
- Semi-sheer fabrications create a lightweight feel
