Summer 2016— On July 11th, Suitsupply will present its Spring/Summer 2017 collection to the world. Inspired by Bauhaus, the midcentury German school of design known for its emphasis on practical, everyday objects that inform and improve the way we live our lives, Suitsupply’s collection brings the minimalist aesthetic and pragmatic engineering of Bauhaus into the world of suiting for a look that is at once contemporary, versatile, and eternally stylish. The motto of the Bauhaus was “Art Into Industry,” and its philosophy was rendered in its many now-iconic interpretations, an ethos of functional beauty that translates just as gorgeously to Suitsupply’s new line of suits and casual wear. Staying cool in style is essential for men in summer, and Suitsupply Spring 2017 makes copious use of linen to achieve that.
Their innovative take on linen is blended with cashmere, cotton, and silk in suits, sweaters and ties alike, using modern textile techniques, for airy comfort with a more structured, contemporary feel. A restrained, tonal palette comprising of off-whites and grass, burnt orange and dark navy, provide soft, yet distinctive, color combinations that let the textural and textile contrast do the talking. This pairing of lightweight mobility and versatility takes well to layering, as well as travel, which is why the label’s Traveller collection has been updated with new, mobile, suitcasefriendly pieces like suits and shirts. After all, everyone’s lives could be a bit more streamlined. A bit…better designed. And what better way is there to inject good design into your daily life than by wearing it on your sleeve?
