Summer of Ease
How can simplicity be so attractive? Perhaps it’s the space it provides for comfort, and so the harmony that may come with it. BOSS has managed to make simplicity in tailoring so captivating. In the Summer of Ease, the new BOSS Menswear Collection Spring/Summer 2018, they have exported the breeze of a mellow summer’s day at the seaside, to the ‘concrete jungle’ and created a vista of the future. Without ever really letting of the ‘big city life’ motifs, the cool blues and flint-stone shades amalgamate with the structure and attention to craft and detail in the tailoring, to illuminate the most glowing seasons – Spring/Summer.
The colour palette of this show amazed me, fused with the fabrics – stone blue suedes, white cotton, silks, all perfectly treated and curated to convey the spirit of the collection. The pops of red on the soles of the shoes is exemplary of the novelty of this collection – weather-beaten hues with stark red. I followed suit – journeying from Mykonos to NYC I brought with me the exact mood that the Summer of Ease conveyed – effortlessly at ease with summer white for the modern man.
