2010 Men's Spring/Summer Essential: DESERT HUES
Mixes of UNIFORM and EXOTIC unite for strong, yet airy essentials for men in a mood for casual luxury: Officer shirts, creme fitted blazers, khaki coats.
Frecnh foreign legionnaires at VERSACE wore glazed cottons in khakis and mauves. At DRIES VAN NOTEN, khaki was reiterated to be a retro staple, pleasantly contrasting with prints and patterns. PHILIP LIM did his in 50s transition with pleated bibs and regular-waist pants. JOHN GALLIANO and HERMES felt the sand dunes in a lot of browns and olives and very airy, comfortable separates. NEIL BARRETT took the Hindu route and mixed his jodphur pants with immaculate hues of creme, beige and khaki.
Whether inspired by expedition or era, these DESERT HUES - creme, beige, flesh, khaki and some light browns - should blend in wth your machismo and emotion.
