Inspired by music sub cultures of the 70s, John Varvatos SS16 is all about slick striped suiting with rock n roll sensibility. But surely 1988 blockbuster Beetlejuice played a part too? Black and white three-piece suits and tapered-waist tailoring create a timeless look for SS16.
The colour palette is perfect for summer in the city – grey, off-white, olive are the muted tones of the season. Attention seeking burnt reds and accents of purple are interspersed through the collection, whilst stage-worthy sunglasses provide the ideal accessory for both head-banging with the band or off-duty at the beach.
SS16 sees a mash up of soft lambskin leather, crushed linen, fine-tuned cottons and a hint of metallic thread play out in unison on the runway. A dynamic fusion of tactile pleasures, such luxurious touches make for the most accomplished of collections.
