Although the winter weather may still have the country firmly in its grasp, the fashion world is already looking forward to the summer of 2013.
One trend which looks to make a big splash during the coming warmer months is mico-print patterns, and an excellent example of this is the Sport Print Riviera Shirt from Dolce & Gabbana.
Despite being more often found on pyjamas, micro-prints are an excellent way of bringing some flair and statement to a man’s everyday attire. They also offer a youthful touch to any summer outfit, and a good contrast to the sobriety of winter couture.
The classic Riviera cut of this shirt combines a traditional masculine outline with the colour and brightness of micro print, which in this particular example is in a football (soccer) player design. The garment also features an open collar with mother of pearl buttons and is crafted from 100% silk, providing the ultimate in light, summer comfort.
Since the detailing is so strong, pairing the shirt with restrained shorts or chinos is a sensible idea. Keep the sleeves long and add oversized eyewear for a traditional hipster inspired look, or roll them up at the forearms for your own take on masculine chic.
The Dolce & Gabbana Sport Print Riviera Shirt is priced at £455 and is available here.
