Keeping up with the Bakers
Peer over the picket fence for a glimpse of the SS17 collections everyone’s talking about.
Stake your claim to the good life in laidback menswear with a quietly competitive streak. Relaxed shapes sport striped trims and performance fabrics – such as neoprene and bonded jersey – to keep would-be rivals on their toes. Impressive details like rubberised zip cords and bungee-style pullers are pointedly placed in the spirit of one-upmanship.
Raise a few eyebrows with offbeat, chalky tones. Cloudy petrol and dusky pink, accented with bright blues and outrageous reds will set curtains twitching all over town. Texture is highly sought-after this season, with a hankering for suede bomber jackets, nylon outerwear, mouliné, and link stitching on knitwear that borders on obsession.
Printed linings attract jealous stares, with enviable depictions of meticulously trimmed gardens making for a cause célèbre. Bags fit right in with the sports luxe trend with their rubberised leather finish. New scuba fabric shapes are a tantalising addition, the branded webbing and orange contrast zip pullers the subject of fierce fascination.
Come in and see the new SS17 range. Welcome to the neighbourhood!
