has never wavered in its excellence. It maybe still in its infancy with a couple of seasons under its belt, so it is no surprise that for Spring Summer 2015 they continue an exploration of bold prints, innovative textures and fabrics. Design, cut and silhouette aside, these three factors have made the menswear collection stand out from the rest of the higher end of the high street - and even the lower end of the designer spectrum.
Inevitably, although with no complaints, SS15 shapes are informed by traditional sportswear with a nod to athletic styling. A defined colour palette features a modern mix of blues, punctuated with muted pastels – powder blue, lilac and peach all work in unison with palm, Memphis and graphic brutalist inspired prints, which accent the collection. Outerwear offers a development on modern classics, the brush stroke cagoule, the cross check harrington, unlined bomber and the bonded jersey windbreaker whilst Jersey is dip-dyed, panelled and oversized. Whilst Whistles Menswear
excels in outwear, their other area of strength are shirts, which this season emerge in a fine check, seersucker and soft linen, with raglan sleeve and dropped hem details.
The sportswear influence continues into knitwear, the bonded hoody in a pale blue summer hue features their take on the kangaroo pocket, whilst the indigo striped crew answers all of your contemporary classic needs. On trend, with the perfect combination of heritage and contemporary styling, denim is the key fabric focus from indigo dyed sweats and sweatpants to chambray caps and patch pockets whilst footwear focuses on the suede espadrille with an authentic gum sole. One area to watch here is their swimwear, which will no doubt be coming to a beach near you.
