RIVER ISLAND – SPRING / SUMMER 2018 MENSWEAR COLLECTION
For Spring/Summer 2018, River Island focuses on clean silhouettes, premium cloths and technical design features. Contemporary tailoring and luxe sportswear pieces are dressed with an array of chic casual separates for a versatile summer look. Soft shades of pastel pink, light grey and pistachio are complimented by flushes of burgundy, mustard yellow and cobalt blue for a fresh colour palette that breathes new life into every man’s wardrobe.
COURTSIDE PREP combines clean shades of white, stone and soft grey with bursts of bottle green, pink and burgundy. Retro track jackets, knitted polos and striped shirts reference vintage east-coast preppy icons, offset by the modern aesthetic of the nylon windbreaker and cropped tailored trousers. Luxe jersey tracksuits, vector printed sweaters and striped shorts deliver a relaxed and layered look; pair perfectly with the oversized bum bag and white tennis trainers.
MEXICANA brings statement fabrications and luxurious tailoring to the forefront. Doublebreasted blazers and heritage checked trousers in masculine hues of grey and navy are layered with vibrant floral printed shirts, evoking a subtle elegance and versatile approach to summer dressing. The burgundy technical jacket and matching print shirt and shorts are perfect for that off-duty evening look.
VICE is this seasons resort tailoring offering. Classic suiting shapes are reimagined and infused with a plethora of premium fabrics and textures in seasonal tones of sky blue, lilac and pistachio. High shine racers, Cuban collar shirts and a variety of slick separates strike a level of compelling modernity, team with the unstructured linen suit for a contemporary alternative to formal dressing.
SUMMER HERITAGE infuses a muted palette of crisp white, cream and black with premium heritage fabrics and functional construction methods to create a silhouette that is both chic and understated. Harrington jackets, block-striped shirts and clean-rinsed jeans in shades of navy and mustard yellow invigorate and bring the collection right up to date. The minimal trench coat is a hero piece from the collection, dress with checked cropped trousers and laundered accessories for an effortlessly cool ensemble.
