A lesson in classic styles to wear all Summer long, the Whistles Spring Summer 16 lookbook showcases the brand’s latest collection in situ around the home.
The British brand’s third season of Menswear has a nice mix of everyday items to help restock your Summer wardrobe alongside more stand out pieces like camo sweatshirts, light macs and suede overshirts.
From those who hate to shop and do it once a year to those who treat menswear as more of a lifestyle, there’s something here for everybody - it’s everyday contemporary wear for the modern man. Whistles have a knack of creating pieces easy enough for every day but with a level of detail and consideration that makes them feel a little bit special, resulting in sophisticated, versatile and understated attire.
Summer layering is in full effect with Nylon and Suede overshirts, a light two-tone Field Jacket and a textured bomber all on offer because let’s face it, Summer isn’t just four months of shorts and t-shirts. Slim and light layers work just as well with trousers and jeans as they do with shorts, so while they might be very much a Spring Summer piece, they work very well all year round.
Based on how great they were last season, I’m particularly excited by the low top sneakers, which for SS16 come in Olive, Tan and White colourways. A luxe take on the classic Tennis shoe, these aren’t really for running in but with premium leather and a clean, uncluttered style they’ll work well all day long, from lazy days at the beach through to smarter wear in the evening.
