Few high-street stores grab my attention as regularly as Urban Outfitters, and their new lookbook can explain why. With the days set to brighten over the coming months, UO is determined to make sure you’re looking sharp from head to toe. Here’s the stuff that stands out:
Picture the sun setting as you casually stroll down the street. On those chilly spring evenings, it’s this jacket, from the Japanese denim experts, that you’re going to want to be packing. Prints are in and camo is definitive.
Shore Leave is slowly emerging as a staple provider. The normally tame clothing line flies the nautical flag in the standard blues, greys and reds that we naturally associate with the seven seas.
However, the exotic blood orange tone of this not-so-chunky knit, softened by the fade, pushes Shore Leave into stranger tides and to the top of the spring/summer wish list.
Unlike the Edwin jacket, this disguise from Libertine-Libertine is a bit more subtle. The Danish brand’s camo accent on the roll-up of these chino shorts is inspiring detail from the newcomers.
The simple espadrille is given a touch of class by a woven leather outer. Apparently influenced by the Far East, but confusingly named after the beautiful Mexican neighbour that sits in the Caribbean, the British shoe connoisseurs have applied a modern twist to a 14th century design. Don the brown or tan for a serious contender to rival the boat shoe as gentleman’s footwear of choice this summer.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this look book is a must-read.
Looking good isn’t important, it’s everything.
