In days gone by, the gleaming frontages of Burano’s small fishing villages would often aid sailors as they journeyed home. BWGH‘s Spring/Summer collection is set against this Venetian backdrop, mimicking the return of weary travelers with “warm shades and sensual cloth, a lot like those welcoming houses which sailors gone to sea dream of.” This season, the Parisian label’s traveling archetype brings back with him a wardrobe of fabrics sourced from Japan or the United Kingdom, braids made from rope and accessories in calf-velvet or wax cotton. Above all, these influences have now been integrated into his everyday, solid ground wardrobe in the form of blazers, sweaters, button-downs, shorts and trousers that serve as souvenirs of faraway lands. Often, this season’s ethnic references find their way onto the garments through embroidered details, while others — as is the case with BWGH’s new sweatshirts — take the form of graphic prints that reference Paris, Tokyo and, understandably, Brooklyn. Rounding out the collection, meanwhile, is an accessory essential to any seasoned traveler — a camera strap — while wax-cotton, suede-brimmed caps are ideal for warding off sunshine and complementing any man’s wardrobe.
BWGH’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection is available now at our online store.
