Creative Director Nicola Formichetti continues his revamp of the famous denim brand with a continuation of themes he introduced the collection before, speaking to Diesel’s heritage while also introducing a playful, more modern approach. Print and graphics on feature pieces such as a Bomber and quilted jacket emphasise this mission, mixed in among an offering inspired by the Diesel heartland – stylish denim and staple shirting, t-shirts and tops.
Jack & Jones
Founded in 1990, Jack & Jones is a Scandinavian-based jeans brand with a high profile throughout Europe. Since it was founded the brand has launched a number of denim-focused diffusion brands such as Jack & Jones Vintage Clothing, Premium by Jack & Jones, Originals by Jack & Jones, Core by Jack & Jones and Jack & Jones Tech. It has also launched Jack & Jones Jeans Intelligence which offers pants and shorts, a key segment for the brand in Australia’s warmer climate. For lovers of denim tradition updated for today, Jack & Jones can be found at Myer, theiconic.com.au and Glue Store.
The Melbourne-based label Gary Zecevic founded way back in 1989 always presents a strong offering at this time of year as men seek out tailored suiting options and new shirts for Spring Racing season. Increasingly the warmer months have also been about separates and the Calibre blazer range is one of the best on offer in the market. This limited edition Miami blazer teamed with a Tropicana print shit, tie and chinos is the perfect combination for a day at the races, the polo, the garden party, the less formal wedding or one of any number of other warm weather occasions. We’re in.
As we showcased in our recent Spring issue, Nautica is an international byword for sleek, chic outdoor wear perfect for the Australian climate… but the brand also provides for a man to dress up as well. Premium quality fabric and construction in blazers, shirting and chinos are also a feature of Nautica’s new season offering, in addition to the polos, t-shirts, shorts and swim shorts for which the brand is rightfully renowned. Dress the looks up with the addition of a tie, a pocket square and some espadrilles, or keep it seasonally informal by going open-necked and rolling your chinos up to wear with boat shoes. The ease of wear is the key to the Nautica look.
Visibility and legibility are the keys to a product range that has been created specifically for men who perform elite, high-pressure jobs such as Navy SEALs, US Air Force pilots and deep sea divers. The American brand is famous for the unique Luminox Light Technology, which means Luminox watches provide a constant glow 24/7, no matter what the conditions are, for up to 25 years. This unique piece celebrates the work of Scott Cassell, an expert counter-terrorism operative and undersea explorer who seeks to protect the world’s oceans and their inhabitants via his organizations, Sea Wolves and Underwater Voyager Project…
Pierre Cardin Watches
Classic yet contemporary best describes the fashion watches that bear the name of the famous avant-garde designer. The pieces prize simplicity and elegance over technical complication, designed to seamlessly pair back with your wardrobe be it work or evening wear. The highly accessible price point means you can invest in a range of styles from pink and rose gold on bracelets through to stainless steel on a mesh band and all black pieces. The range is sufficiently broad to complement whatever you’re wearing.
