Bangalore, September 2014:Nautica signals the arrival of it Fall 2014 collection. Inspired by the spirit of military tradition and the utilitarian nature of maritime design, the season’s key pieces reflect a nautical and uniform sensibility. The “Into the Navy” look is grounded with bold, pops of colors throughout and a stylish combination of function and performance.
“As the uniform you wear defines your role in service, our finest pieces and styles reflect a sensibility of color and character,” said Creative Director, Chris Cox. “This Fall is about bringing the spirit of tradition, utility, and camaraderie into a collection that one can wear proudly.”
Men’s collection highlights:
Outerwear makes the strongest statement this season, with classic peacoats updated with removable lined collars; multi-pocket parkas in white, navy, and orange hues; a traditional flight bomber jacket; and a black box quilted blazer. Neon quilted vests are great layering pieces over cozy textured sweaters or exploded plaid wovens. Shawl collars appear on pullover knits, collegiate style cardigans, and twisted zip sweaters.
The slim leg knit pant is a new silhouette and pairs nicely with mini checked shirts and toggle cardigans. Stripes are seen in new ways – marked across hoodies and vertically printed on tees, and denim comes in a variety of pigment dyed colors – green, red, and cobalt blue. Modern and clean – this season’s styles will get you marching to a new nautical beat and ready for the colder months ahead.
