After dropping a rugby shirt collection in aid of the Australian wildfires last month, Rowing Blazers has launched its first delivery of the Spring/Summer 2020 season. Inspired by the halcyon summer days in films like Moonrise Kingdom and Call Me By Your Name, the collection draws from Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson’s own summertime memories.

“I was lucky – luckier than I realized – to spend many summers as a young adult in Italy and New England. I spent a couple summers as a field archaeologist excavating an Etruscan temple in the countryside near Florence. On the weekends, I’d go up to Como with a few friends,” Carlson reminisces. “When I was on the U.S. rowing team, I would spend the summer training on the Dartmouth campus in New Hampshire. It was idyllic.”

From colorblocked rugby shirts made on vintage French sewing machines to split color cotton twill hats made in Brooklyn, the collection takes cues from the mid-60s and 80s in its patterns and silhouettes. Shirts and shorts are made of patchwork madras and seersucker stripe woven just for Rowing Blazers, while hoodies and T-shirts are emblazoned with Adam and Eve and the Loch Ness Monster motifs.

Take a look at the lookbook above and shop the looks now on Rowing Blazers’ website, at Rowing Blazers Clubhouse in New York City, at pop-ups in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, and at Beams Plus in Japan.

In other news, UNIQLO has teamed up with JW Anderson for a Spring/Summer 2020 collection centered around a “British Country Style” theme.
