Nautica Mens Spring 2013 nyfw
the Nautica Mens classic oceanic theme carried throughout the Spring Summer 2013 collection. Understandable Prints took shape in many forms within the collection, with styled looks molding the brand’s more unconventional man. Marine-printed board shorts were paired with a navy button-down accentuated with small anchors, and Skinny ties broke the standard in bright hues and color blocks. Neon yellow electrified the collection in several pieces such as on slim trousers, caps, and even on the soles of dock shoes. Coral green, red, and ice blue shook up the usual seaside scene.
The outerwear options were limitless for spring through the cable-knit sweaters interacting seamlessly alongside deep hued windbreakers. Attention-grabbing looks all in one hue took center stage in ruby red and crisp white, while moments of bold stripes created definition. Businessman looks mixed suiting with board shorts and dock shoes. Whether you are the lawyer or the lifeguard, the accessible mens collection covers the best of both worlds. Can’t wait for spring, check out the Nautica + Zhik Capsule collection for fall.
Australian sailing label Zhik created 14 pieces for the capsule in collaboration with Nautica. Featured pieces include the short and long-sleeved ZhikDry shirts, technical shorts, and the Aroshell Fleece Jacket. Style and sustainability are now possible thanks to the high-tech components within the designs. UV 50+ shielding, quick-drying functionality, moisture wicking, and Velcro resistance (perfect for sailing) within the ZhikDry shirts take functionality to the next level. The 90% nylon water repellent Technical short has velcro closures, deep cargo pockets, strong 500D abrasion resistant rear butt panel, and 4-way stretch. The Aroshell fleece jacket consists of a high cut collar to fight the elements, and a 2-layer shell with a deep fleece lining that’s great for standing against the water and wind. Coming in an array of colors, the collection is now in limited edition in select stores and on Nautica.com. Written by Mary Anderson.
