WHISTLES AW16 MENSWEAR
Classic yet contemporary, trimmed of unnecessary adornment and confidently constructed – for autumn/winter 2016 Whistles menswear modernizes workwear favorites with luxurious finishing touches.
Inspiration comes from French New Wave cinema, specifically, the ultra-cool styling of lean Paul Belmondo in the cinematic masterpieces of Jean Luc Goddard.
A sense of purpose and movement is inherent throughout thanks to a relaxed retro mood. The silhouette remains slim but is slackened slightly – loosened-up trouser shapes, roomy overcoats and relaxed shirting add depth to signature clean line and elegant tailoring. Turn-up jeans and chinos add a further retro touch and customizable cool.
Premium fabrications create a feeling of everyday luxury, and authenticity unlocks strips, plaids, worsted wool and herringbone weaves. A playful experiment with scale leads to micro-weaves contrasted with expanded checks, while the Gallic charms of Breton stripe are impossible to resist. A muted palette of indigo, sand and steely shades of grey creates the building blocks of everyday easy-going style.
Functionality is once again key throughout the collection: purposeful pocket, considered internal finishes and refined trims optimize comfort and add sense of reassurance. Lightweight kits are designed to be layered up and sporty outerwear that balances form and faction whatever the weather
